Join us at the Law Society on 9 May for a free event designed to prepare second year trainees for qualification with practical career planning tips.

This event will give trainee solicitors mulling their post-training contract options the opportunity to gain insight into the newly qualified (NQ) jobs market.

The session will be run by Husnara Begum, a career coach specialising in offering guidance to final seat trainees who miss out on internal jobs.

The event will cover:

  • options available as your traineeship nears an end
  • tips for navigating the internal qualification process
  • key factors to consider when choosing a specialism
  • pros and cons of moving on after completing your traineeship, and
  • nex steps for trainees who are not offered internal NQ roles or want to explore the external NQ jobs market.

Delegates will also be invited to enter a draw to win a free 45 minute career session with a career coach on 15 May.
