What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be honest and confident in your abilities. You will be selected for interview from your application so don't hold back in showcasing your achievements, skills, and anything else that an employer would be looking for but will also set you apart from other candidates.
Do you have any interview tips?
Prepare well. The firm will likely ask you about its values, how you would be able to work within them, how your experience can already demonstrate you meet these values. Be honest and up front, interviewers will very quickly see through any "fakeness" and they want to see the real you to make sure you are right for the role/firm.
