[MFL Ep. 3] – Tips For Training Contract Applications

Applying for Training Contracts or Vacation Schemes? Got an interview coming up?

For this episode of the #MoreFromLaw podcast, I spoke with Jaysen Sutton of The Corporate Law Academy. Jaysen has proofread hundreds of applications and conducted many mock interviews with candidates.

We discuss:

  • The do’s and don’ts of writing an application
  • The different ways law firms interview candidates, with tips for each
  • How to network and overcome public speaking fears

and more!

A really insightful conversation that I’m sure will be of value to many aspiring lawyers. Listen in at the links below!
