News The talent pool – a shortcut to your chosen career

September 09, 2011

“The talent pool was extremely rewarding,” says Kristin Bernhardtson who was employed as an associate in Vinge in Stockholm one year after she started working in the pool.

Kristin Bernhardtson was one of ten students that were specially chosen to work in the pool at Vinge’s offices in Stockholm when the pool started in the autumn of 2010.

A natural choice
“It feels great to get a job. I really enjoyed working in the talent pool and Vinge was a natural choice for me when I did my practical work experience whilst writing my thesis,” says Kristin who thoroughly enjoyed working in the pool.

“The pool provides work experience whilst at university. It is a good way of finding out what it is actually like working at a law firm and whether Vinge is the right place for you. I found the work very rewarding. It was the first time that I had come into contact with practical legal work and this constitutes a significant advantage and valuable experience.”

Flexible system
“What is good about the pool is that it is not really a question of fixed working hours, just one night every other week. In addition, you get to decide whether you can work additional hours. If you are coming up to exams then some other student can perhaps fill in for you.”

Facts about the talent pool
The talent pool consists of students who work at Vinge in their spare time. It offers an opportunity for law students to get an idea of what it is actually like working in a corporate law firm and at the same time earn some extra money.

For Vinge, the talent pool is an invaluable resource and support function for the firm’s practice groups and offers a perfect opportunity to get to know possible future colleagues. Apply to the talent pool via Nova 100.
