The vacation scheme was excellent. We got to sit in two different departments and experienced a great deal of interesting work for different clients. The social and networking events were also really good. It truly felt as if we were apart of the firm.
We had an associate supervisor and trainee buddy each week. They were very encouraging and friendly. All of the team expressed their gratitude for the work done during the week, and I was taken to lunch both weeks.
A lot. The HR team were always contactable. As well as our buddy and supervisor.
I learnt a lot in the 2 weeks I was there. Most notably what the client really expects of the firm, and the approach the firm is taking to develop in the ever developing market. Also team work skills, communication, time management, presenting.
Very well structured. We were given a time table from day one of the upcoming events. When we were simply working in our departments there was always work available for us to do.
Really good. Everyone was really friendly and I had a great 2 weeks.
They invested a huge amount of time on us. We had networking events, one-on-one reviews with our supervisors as well as much contact with our buddy's. We also had workshops given by partners and associates.
This was definitely the case, as we were given real work in departments.
Culture is a big thing at RPC. We were continuously told by various staff about the culture and it was evident in how the firm operated.
I was able to ask question at every avenue, and experiencing day-to-day life as a lawyer helped me decide that it was the job for me.
We has speed networking with all departments, as well as a welcome lunch and another networking lunch in week 2.
Great, as above. Also had bowling and karaoke with the trainees, and a dinner.
Yes, we were invited to social events, house football, tennis, Wimbledon afternoon.
