Second year trainee, Southampton
"I had to do two interviews for my paralegal role, one in front of a senior associate and partner, with the other in front of two partners with a practical test. I wasn't to feel awkward or as though I was being grilled; they were genuinely keen to get to know me and my goals. The assessment day is one of the best around (according to others) and I actually enjoyed the day!"
