Live on our Facebook yesterday we welcomed Matthew Mercer, Graduate Recruiter for Shoosmiths and Senior Consultant for Apportunity – the new careers service for graduates. Matthew answered all your questions about where to begin when thinking ahead for training contract and vacation scheme applications.
He outlined the difference between Magic Circle, Silver Circle, International and Regional firms and what each group is looking for and what you can expect from working for them. He also suggested a couple of other routes to get Training Contracts that you might not have thought of applying to. He went through the kinds of things you should consider when choosing which firm to apply to and what you need to know about each firm to write a successful application and give a good interview.
In case you missed it, here’s the full video:
