There was no telephone interview, and the assessment day lasted only until noon (and was led by a member of senior management).
Most difficult question
The assessment is purely based on your research skills, so be prepared to concentrate on the task.
As you have only 2 1/2 hours to impress them, make sure that you show your communication and teamwork skills.
Experiences at the assessment centre
We were given an introduction about the values of the company, the role of a commercial conference producer and the progression of previous graduates.
The actual assessment was divided into three aspects.
First, a research analysis test, where we were asked to read through 20 transcripts(oil and gas industry)and extract the most important information from which we would construct our own conference.
Second, a role play exercise, which is a group based activity and makes use of the information you collected doing the research task. Third, we were presenting the structure and content of our conference in individual group presentations (which do'not last much longer than 5 minutes).
