Training contract interviews made easy
Isla Grant

You have submitted your training contract applications and you've been invited to an interview. After five minutes of patting yourself on the back, the associated fears start to surface. What if I become a gibbering wreck? What do I wear? What sorts of question are they going to ask? All of sudden you realise you're being asked to prove yourself in person rather than on paper. But we're here to help.
