Training contract applications should always be tailored specifically to the firm you’re applying to; a copy and paste job will be spotted a mile off and is the best way to get your form put straight into the reject bin.
Having said that, being able to copy and paste the standard, repetitive elements of your applications such as your GCSE and A Level grades could be a great time saver and would help some way towards easing the feelings of dread when facing yet another application form.
This is where LawCareers.net’s MyLC.N, tool comes in very handy. MyLC.N helps you to keep all your key employability information in one place before you start applying for training contracts and a really useful feature of this tool is MyLocker. Here’s where you can store your key information, such as grades, and apply to participating firms without having to re-type the same facts for each and every application. This means you can spend your precious application-making time on getting the important questions answered as best you can.
If you need any help with application forms or setting up a MyLC.N account pop in to the Placement and Careers Centre in the Bannerman Centre during my Quick Query times.
