Attended a variety of skills workshops to expand the participant’s commercial awareness and improve our application chances. One session was called “Demystifying Law”, which was very helpful in explaining the firm’s global outlook. Participants were sent an information pack, notebook, pen and £20 JustEat voucher (food for each day).
The experience expanded my commercial awareness, virtual networking and application writing skills. It also gave great insight into the firm’s culture, practice areas, people and global outlook.
The programme provided great opportunity to learn more about the firm’s work and the variety of practice areas. Throughout the programme, the Graduate Recruitment Team gave excellent insight into the next steps with the firm and explained the opportunity to be fast-tracked for the summer internship as a participant of the programme.
I found the culture to be inclusive, respectful and caring. It appeared the Graduate Recruitment Team really cared about the trainees and wanted to hear more about their experience at the firm. It also appeared that it was a place where employees could ask for help, notably, through any one of the various employee networks.
I had an excellent time on the programme and feel I learnt a great deal. It can be difficult to run events in the virtual world that keep participants engaged but I think the Graduate Recruitment Team did a great job!
Make sure you really research the firm and submit an application that shows who you are. Also, try to avoid grammatical errors and typos as much as possible.
