The virtual experience was an Insight Day which allowed placement students to learn more about the firm. The day included an application skills workshop, an information session on transactional, advisory and contentious work, an opportunity to network with trainees and a session on Inclusion and Diversity at Baker Mckenzie.
Yes, the application skills workshop really helped me to develop my approach to applications as I was able to understand what the employers are looking for.
It was extremely interesting and definitely necessary but, as expected, slightly overwhelming. There was a lot to take in and it could have been difficult for individuals who had just stepped into the world of law.
The company culture was extremely friendly. Everyone was very kind and helpful both to us, the work experience students, and to each other. It was clear that everyone got on well with their colleagues and had had good social experiences within the firm.
I really enjoyed the virtual experience. It was extremely interesting and I felt that I got to know so much more about the firm. Everyone I met (virtually) was so friendly and provided helpful answers to my questions. I was able to obtain an insight into the culture and ethos of the firm which has really helped to solidify my interest not only in law, but also in Baker McKenzie as a future place of work for me. The application advice was also invaluable.
Be yourself! The atmosphere I received from the firm is that they really value individuals and thrive of the creativity that the diversity of their employees bring.
