Uhm title kind of speaks for itself! Anyone got any information about it? The firm have just said there is “testing” and a presentation about the firm. Anyone going to the assessment days on 12/13 August? Or even better, anyone been and can tell me what it’s like?! The firms page on Wikijob seems a bit bare! Or just anything about their main competitors, important things to know etc etc Thanks in advance
Looks like you might have to be the guinea pig for this one- hopefully someone who knows will reply soon!
If it’s a [[competency based interview]], there’s a lot of stuff on this site to help you.
Let us know how it goes!
“Testing” probably means a written [[SHL]] or [[Watson Glaser]] test. You can find examples of both (these tests are different) online. Check the [[SHL]] website and the [[Lovells]] website, for an example of [[Watson Glaser]].
The presentation about the firm will be a talk by HR about [[Bird & Bird]]. Pay attention and try to ask an intelligent question at the end of it, if you can.
Be prepared for interview questions like: Do you really want to work for a [[magic circle]] firm? / Did you apply to [[magic circle]] firms? / Why didn’t you apply to [[magic circle]] firms. …so make sure you have planned answers for why you want to work for a smaller firm and what you like about B&B specifically.
There’s a few bits and pieces in the [[Berwin Leighton Paisner Training Contract Interview Questions]] profile which might help you too. B&B are a good firm with a good reputation. Give it evrything you have - show them you love them and that you are very enthusiastic and knowledgable. You’ll be fine… good luck.
Hey Ooh - how did your interviews go at Bird & Bird?
