What members say...

"The WCAN experience has been an amazing and most rewarding one. One of the most invaluable event for me was the Clifford Chance insight day. I was in the middle of doing my application for the winter vacation scheme and thus this day gave me an opportunity to ask niggling questions, such as the logistics of how they go through applications and what they are looking for in each answers (I.e. the competencies they judge each answer on). In addition, I also learnt that the 3 day scheme ended with a training contract interview which spurred on my motivation, ensuring my application was as perfect as possible. Furthermore, attending the event in of itself was an advantage as Clifford Chance always record each contact you have had with the firm and use that as an indication of an applicants interest. As a result, WCAN provided the perfect opportunity for me to interact with the firm as well as getting myself noticed by the graduate recruitment team. The application workshop was detailed, precise and aided my application form. It was overall a great experience that most definitely helped in securing a training contract with the firm."
