    Doesn't matter. Choose something that been difficult for your personally though and focus on what you did rather than the goal itself.

    Assessment day invite from Norton Rose Fulbright, at 11pm last night! I wonder what graduate recruitment were doing reviewing applications at that time.

    Just to tag on to what mrlufc said, just because you only get offered a couple of slots, it doesn't mean they are the only slots left! For example I've only been offered one slot by NRF but I know they're running assessment days up until mid-February (I'm their brand manager). If you e-mail firms they will often be willing to book you in on a day/time that is convenient for both you and them.

    Have a good Christmas everybody!

    So regarding Cleary, I believe those of us selected should hear back this week latest. My understanding is that they run two ACs. One in mid-January and one in early February. So I'm assuming if we do not hear back by Friday, assume a PFO.
    It's odd - I haven't come across anybody who's heard back from them.

    Hey, I am the same. Mine changed to interview stage on the 9 Jan and I still haven't got an email about it yet. But I did email Links and they replied by saying that they are still in the process of reviewing other peoples applications and arranging groups for the AC...

    I checked last week and it hadn't changed - doubt it will have as I haven't been invited to take the WG yet
    Thanks - guess we just have to sit back and wait then :rolleyes:

    Bit of an issue with CC - I'm booked onto their assessment day tomorrow, in the initial invitation e-mail they sent a link to do a Watson Glaser which had to be done at any point before midnight the day before, I've just sat down to do it and the link doesn't work! I've tried to call them but nobody is in the office! :eek: Have just had to e-mail them explaining, hopefully this doesn't cause any problems tomorrow.

    Do you know if we will hear back via letter/email/telephone?
    My understanding is that they will email you if invited for an AC

    Same. However I have scoured their website and the internet in general and all sources say both assessment days are in mid January and early February. I remember one person on this thread had got a PFO from them by post.

    "We run two open day assessment programmes (one in mid-January before the 28 January deadline; one in early February) in order to select 30–36 vacation scheme students."

    Well, at least it's not just one of us that is having a problem. I imagine everyone will be facing the issue.

    Does anyone know anything about IM video interviews?? I just got an email about one but all it asks is to download an app, and you can do it at any time which makes me think I won't actually be speaking to a real person?
    (Original post by LawStudent30)
    Just got the same email & thinking the same!! A few of my friends did video interviews last year (for different Firms) and they had automated questions so I'm assuming this will be the same! Had an interview with IM last year but that was telephone!
    I got an email as well. So will our answers be recorded and then sent to the graduate recruitment team? That is strange. It's hard to come across enthusiastic when you're talking to yourself lol

    so how do video interviews work?? they give you a couple of questions to prepare for and then you can record it whenever you feel ready, have multiple takes etc...? or are you not given the questions and have one attempt - ie so the questions will pop up on some app as if someone was asking you on the spot?? so confused - at first i thought video interview would mean webcamming with HR! :P

    If its launchrecruits, you will be given 1 minute to answer 1 question. There may be 2 questions. The app records it and grad rec review them later. They are usually basic awareness, like what qualities should a solicitor have. Dress well and be confident. A grad rec rep at cc told me that many ppl screw it up by being too nervous, overpreparing and speaking too much and being cutoff, etc.

    Been following this thread but just joined to say I got an IM video interview too.
    Have absolutely no idea what to expect to be honest, from what I'm hearing it sounds like they actually invite a majority of applicants for a video interview too, which is disheartening. Don't feel like I've made much progress!
