interviewMaples and Calder is committed to supporting the Islands’ youth and guiding them towards a path of success. This year the firm expanded its reach by providing scholarship interview training for five local high school students.

The mock interviews were conducted by Maples and Calder’s Human Resources department and took place on 18 April. Lasting 30 minutes each, the interviews were an opportunity for the students to gain realistic experience of a typical scholarship interview in preparation for their approaching time at University. Students were also advised on interview etiquette, which covered lessons on appropriate dress; when to arrive; what to bring; how to greet the interviewer; how to respond to interview questions; how to close the interview; and sending a follow-up thank you note.

The interviewed students represented St. Ignatius High School and have been accepted to several overseas universities, including Newcastle University and Keele University in the UK, St. Leo University in Florida and University of the West Indies.

As a leading international law firm, Maples and Calder continues to seek the next generation of leaders by providing opportunities to Caymanians who exhibit initiative and a team-oriented attitude.

This year the firm afforded summer internship and work experience opportunities to almost 40 young Caymanians.
