In the UK, shiny new attorneys are being told 'call us in a year.'
This is new. You're recruited. Yes, we liked you. But no, you can't start now. Terribly sorry, we know London is expensive. Try the new tea and half a crumpet diet.
Here's an excerpt: "One leading firm, Norton Rose, has invited 55 recruits — whose starting salary is £35,700 — to defer joining, at a likely cost of £200,000. Not all are expected to take up the offer and the firm said yesterday that it would still have intakes in September and January."
Wonder whether we'll start to see the same thing happen over here.
