Claire Richardson, HR Manager at Ramsdens Solicitors, has featured in Luminate where she discusses what employers are looking for in graduates looking to start a career in law- and which skills are too often lacking.

Claire commented: “Graduates need to be able to demonstrate that they want to work for us and that they have something to add to the firm. You can always tell the ones who have done their research, that understand enough about the firm and its culture to come across well at interview. If you don't spend the time researching a firm, how do you know if it's the right place for you? There is generally enough information online to get a feel for what it would be like to work there and to pitch yourself right at interview. It always surprises when candidates don’t bother to do this.'
