Application and interview tips

Make your application and interview stand out:

  • Proofread every document. Ask a friend to double-check.
  • Keep your cover letter brief: in one page, explain why you’re interested in BLG Montréal and why BLG should be interested in you.
  • Remember: everything in your application package is open for discussion in an interview. Be prepared to tell us your story.
  • Think ahead about questions you might be asked and practice answering them.
  • Do your homework: talk to staff, current students, colleagues and professors and read up on the Firm.
  • Try to relax: interviewers want to meet the real you.
