On 27 January, Linklaters led a webinar for CLSG and partner school pupils to illuminate what a career with a leading law firm is like, as well as introduce students to graduate recruitment schemes and the transferable skills most valued by recruiters.
The webinar was attended by 140 pupils from students in Y10-13, from across the City of London’s Family of Schools and the East London Consortium.
With over 60 questions asked from the audience, it was brilliant to see such engagement and curiosity in response to the panel’s advice and experience. The key messages: be yourself and reflect and record examples of the application of key skills, whether developed through clubs or volunteering. And although the hours are long, the teamwork and camaraderie more than makes up for it!
