    Has anyone done the video interview with Eversheds? They recently implemented it a few months ago and so all their advice on the telephone interview and face to face interview is irrelevant. It's 4 questions consisting of 60 seconds and 30 seconds of preparation.

    Anyone done it these past few days? Is it all competency based?

    I'm desperate to understand what to expect as I know literally no one who has gone through this!

    Hey, I've received an invite too but haven't taken the interview yet - I'm hoping there's only so much damage they can do with 4 questions! Surely one of the will be why eversheds?!
    I did a video interview for DWF vac scheme and it was much longer and mainly motivation & competency based - why law, why a large commercial firm, why them, a creative/innovative idea you've had, a time you went beyond expectations. Assuming that this one will be similar and largely competency based!

    \Did you guys submit your application very late? I'm of the impression they assess applications in batches. I applied quite late and got my video interview quite late too!

    They aren't doing telephone interviews in this recruitment cycle as far as I'm aware... I did a video interview! Are you sure you haven't received a video interview invite? My system said book telephone interview but I had to complete a video one so I would double check your junk mail!

    The telephone interview message is a glitch

    They've migrated to video interviews

    So it basically just has not updated. Can I also ask you did you have to do a face to face interview prior to your AC invite? Or was the last thing you submitted your vid interview? Thanks and congrats!
