I firstly had an interview with the Managing Partner of the firm to assess my suitability for a period of Work Experience. I undertook a period of this and once completed, applied for the Graduate Position starting the following year. I then sat a second interview with the Managing Partner and another Partner of the firm before I was then offered the position.  The firm also undertakes yearly performance reviews as a way to monitor your progress and discuss your ongoing strengths and weaknesses.

I applied to WRG by sending my resume to the managing partner. I then attended an interview with the managing partner and the partner for my potential workgroup. Around one week after the interview I was offered a position at WRG.  
The interview process involved putting in my resume at the firm (through an employment agency) and then receiving a phone call asking me to come in for an interview.

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Be a fast learner.  Absorb everything you are told. Be prepared to occasionally work long hours, depending on the client’s needs.  Ask your supervisor why you are completing certain tasks, the how will come easier this way.  Try to be as much of an independent work as quickly as possible.  
Graduate, Townsville
Be professional in all aspects of the application process - first impressions are everything.  
Graduate, Townsville
I would recommend just being yourself at the interview and not worrying about your experience. Being a graduate can be very intimidating when you lack experience in the law. No one is expecting you to be an expert in your field, they are more worried about whether you are the right fit for the team.
