Bewerbung

Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

First, a written exercise (working on e-mail communication with a fictious client, incl. drafting). Then almost immediately after a personal fit interview. Then a tour around the office with a trainee. Lastly, around 15 ( or 20 - not sure) minutes to read an article (in my case The Economist) and shortly after a discussion about the article, which not only tested the understanding of the article but also commercial awareness in the broader sense.

Overall, it has been a very enjoyable experience. People have been invested and seemed genuinely interested in me. The atmosphere was relaxed and comforting. They even provide feedback (in case an offer is not made) a couple of weeks later via phone if one wishes so. Truly professional.

Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

  • Personal fit interview:
    How did you deal with a difficult situation and managed to get through it?
    Why commercial law and why Freshfields?
    A time when you had convince someone that this was the right cause of action to take.   Frage beantworten

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2014 bei Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Very helpful and welcoming all through the process, from phone contact to on the day.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • The writing test was completely different in format to what my internet research had led me to believe. I had expected, and prepared for, an argument/opinion essay type question. In reality was asked to look over some fictional email correspondence and highlight errors/areas of ambiguity and suggest ways the email to the client could be improved. This all took me completely out of the blue. The test was followed by two 2:1 interviews, each with a partner and an associate. The first was competency based (my advice here is not to let their very informal and disarming manner relax you TOO much), the second was analytical (the famous commercial awareness). I had read a commercial awareness book before the interview which helped, but I would advise also reading a broad 'MBA replacement' text if you have the time.   Frage beantworten

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2019 bei Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The application process is composed of three parts: online application form, Watson Glaser test, and a half day in person assessment.

    The application form is very straightforward with the main question being a cover letter. The key purpose is to understand your motivations in why you want to pursue this career, your reasoning for applying to Freshfields, and what differentiates you as an individual.

    The Watson Glaser test is a standard test that is administered by a third party. It is completed online in your own time. It's possible to find many online practice tests for this and prepare fully.

    The assessment centre has three parts: written assessment, competency interview, commercial interview.

    - The written assessment is fairly straightforward with clear instructions and enough time to do a fair amount of what is asked. During my assessment there were several 'fake' emails to review with all the information required contained within them.

    - The competency interview is very relaxed. The interviewers are trying to understand who you are as a person. It did not feel very structured and we took a detour or two. It was clear that the interviewers had certain questions they had to ask but it wasn't a rigid or stressful experience. There were a few situational questions ("what would you do if X happened...") that did not have a right or wrong answer. I felt very comfortable by the end of the process that I had gotten my personality across.

    (There was a break between the competency and commercial interview in which a current trainee gave an office tour.)

    - The commercial interview is a blind interview (the interviewers do not know anything about you other than your name). Before this interview started I had about 20-30 minutes to read an article. We discussed the article during the interview but at times moved away from the article to related topics. The interview felt more like a discussion where the interviewers contributed equally.

    The entire experience was very pleasant overall. I heard back within 3-4 working days after the assessment centre. It feels like the interviewers are looking for reasons to give you an offer rather than dismiss you. It says a lot about the culture of the firm!

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Application form and Watson Glaser, followed by an assessment centre of one written exercise and two interviews (a competency based interview and a commercial awareness interview). Everybody was extremely friendly and what could have been a very stressful day was made much easier, there was also a tour of the office.
