“We want students to be able to show that they have a genuine interest in the business world and an understanding of some of the big issues….We don’t ask candidates to demonstrate technical knowledge [in an interview] – we ask more general questions, like; why might a company be interested in selling its products in India or China?” -Law firm hiring partner quoted in the Guardian.
