“Het Grote Gesprek” – The Big Interview: Law firms uncommonly compared.
Het Grote Gesprek
It is an enormous step for a student to apply for a position at a law firm. For the very first time however, the interview procedures administered by the seven most important law firms in The Netherlands, are being compared by “Het Grote Gesprek” which clearly informs applicants how to prepare themselves most effectively. Law firm Houthoff Buruma’s initiative is not only a new concept within the industry, but the tablet-first website also excels in design and art direction.
“Het Grote Gesprek” offers applicants countless tips from dress codes and questions to be asked to tests to be practiced. With this guidance applicants will be well informed, prepared and more relaxed during their interview.
Florine Keijzer, senior recruiter at Houthoff Buruma: “ Students want to prepare themselves as well as possible for this kind of interview but up until now no decent means of comparison were offered. A well prepared student has a far greater chance for a good interview. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.” The law firm offers a renewed and fast application procedure whereby the student is informed within a day if they are to be given an offer. The other law firms are Allen & Overy, De Brauw, Clifford Chance, Loyens Loeff, NautaDutilh and Stibbe.
