Interviewed at Slaughter and May

Interview Details – Written test where you had to pretend to be a consultant and write a report for a company that was changing strategy. They give you a packet of relevant documents and you have to articulate your strategy using this information. The interview itself was tough, they will quiz you on your grades, and pay close attention to individual module marks. I was asked if the good marks I got were a fluke. Stay relaxed and don't be thrown by this kind of questioning. I probably tried to mount too vigorous a defence. They want you to be smooth and charming and bat away these kind of questions with a deft touch.

Interview Details – The interview was casual to being with but then they were prepared to dig into my experience and CV. Would definitely recommend that you bush up on your facts about the company.
