Why Kissoon Carr?
Mentoring and connecting with people are very important, and Kissoon Carr does both very well. Organisations like Kissoon Carr have helped me with networking and getting an insight into the legal market in London, which now I am aware that I knew almost nothing about when I moved to the UK (not that long ago). Now, I would like to give back and share my experience with other law students and young professionals. I understand how stressful it is to be looking for placements or other job opportunities just by yourself, without any assistance or tips of those already engaged in legal market. Thanks to Kissoon Carr potential candidates are not alone and can receive thorough job application assistance, including networking or LinkedIn tips.
