I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with the Eversheds Video Interview and would be willing to share any tips.

I always seem to do really bad on video interviews!

Does anyone know whether it is more commercial based or competency?

Im in the same boat, I have a video interview coming up very soon with Eversheds, and I've no idea what to expect from it!

I have read that at least two will be competency based questions

Have you completed the video interview yet? If so, I was hoping you could share some information on the types of questions asked. Thanks.

The interview consists of 4 questions and asks a blend of commercially-focussed and competency based questions. My first suggestion would be to review the 'what we look for section' on the Eversheds website and understand what experiences demonstrate those attributes. Also, you should understand Evershed's strategy and how the firm can realise this.

Good luck and hope to see you at an A/C!

Has anyone who did the VI heard back from Eversheds yet? I know someone got an email for the London office saying that they would hear early next week but I haven't heard a thing. I applied to the Cardiff office

What three skills do you think someone needs to a be a commercial law. Do you think you need teamwork to be a commercial lawyer. What motivates you to succeed and what does success look like at eversheds sutherland. What sets you apart from the other applicants.

Someone else had; Why commercial. A time you have given excellent client service. When have you taken a new / innovative approach.

Surround yourself with sticky notes that have planned responses / hints on so you don't get thrown by a question. Make sure these notes are short and specific seen as you don't have a lot of time. Then practice videoing yourself answering these questions. Watch back and see what you're doing right / wrong etc. If you're running out of time try to make sure you finish your sentence so it doesn't cut you off. Keep a pen and paper close so that if you get asked something you weren't expecting you can quickly write your key responses. Make sure your background surroundings are okay, preferably blank wall. Dress smart. Don't smile too much or look angry. Just be confident!

Good luck!

So everyone has different questions?

Is there a time limit per question?

No, but I've already had to choose between two vac scheme offers due to dates clashing. Eversheds used to publish the dates online, but seem to have removed them from their website? I probably won't even get an AC invite anyway, but were I to get one, there would be no point in me going if it clashes, and taking up a spot that someone else could have.
