London Spring Week

Does anyone got an answer about their spring week application?
Also, what in your opinion "makes the difference" on the application and make some get in while others aren't ? Any tips?
Kind regards.


Hello there!

Based on the most helpful WSO content, the Spring Week applications process can be quite competitive. I don't have specific information about individual application statuses, but I can certainly share some tips that might make a difference in your application:

  1. Apply Early: The importance of applying early cannot be overstated. Some firms review applications in chronological order, so the sooner you apply, the better.

  2. CV: Make sure your CV is well-structured and highlights your relevant skills and experiences. Some believe that involvement in societies should make up the majority of your CV, so consider this when crafting yours.

  3. Networking: Reach out to professionals in the industry via LinkedIn or email. This can provide you with valuable insights that you can use in your application and interview.

  4. Broaden Your Scope: Apply to a wide range of firms to increase your chances. The application processes can be quite random, so it's best to hedge your bets.

  5. Attitude: During superdays or assessment centres, try to strike a balance between holding your ground and not being a pain. You never know when you might cross paths with the other candidates in the future.

Remember, it's a numbers game, so keep your spirits high and don't lose momentum. Best of luck with your application!
