Job interview heat map - legal sector's hottest and coldest slots

Sometimes, no matter how good someone is, how well prepared they are, it just comes down to the luck of the draw. 

We looked back at nearly 3,000 legal sector job interviews that took place over the last 12 months and found out which days and times were generating the most positive outcomes.         

The results were staggering. Some interview slots are so cold candidates and decision makers might be better off swerving them altogether. 

Check out the hottest days and times for interview and the best piece of interview preparation you will receive this year.

Read on for a few ideas on getting the most out of technological devices as you strive for a healthy lifestyle.
