    Does anyone have any experience of the interview process for HBJ for their vacation scheme? What is the Vac Scheme like? (I haven't done any others). Also, any idea how they assess you while you are there for the TC?


    Thanks

    strange that they emailed you to let you know the name change... I found that out from the website but no email... alas, maybe they just don't care enough about we lowly vac scheme applicants lol!
    Good luck with your TC app

    I think I must have signed myself up to their email alerts, it wasn't directly in response to my application!

    Thanks you too

    Hi, I just got accepted for a vac scheme... does anyone know if there is a guaranteed training contract interview or any other perks (expenses etc.?)

    I had an interview last year, which is quite possibly my worst interview ever. They started off by asking me generic questions, like "why do you like this firm", "what do you enjoy about your degree", "what do see as being the major challenges and opportunities for this firm/corporate and commercial firms in general in the next 5/10 years", and so on. The only specific problem that they gave me was a scenario involving how I wold react to a client asking for an increase in finances (when the rest of the legal team were away someone else), meaning that I had to make a snap decision on my own.

    aren't those standard questions?

    Thanks geetar, but does the vacation scheme include a guaranteed interview? Or did you apply for the TC through other means? re my last question

    Cheers
