My inital interview was with a member of the HR department in an attempt to understand my background and personality and the fit to the business. IT lasted around 20 minutes and most questions about my academic study were less about my degree and more my social involvement and which societies I had joined and my position in them. As the interview wore on the HR staff attempted to make me ask questions about the job, the company and the sector it worked in. Repeatedly they came back to what questions I had or queries about Admin Re.
Most difficult question
Describe your position in the society, your involvement and your influence upon it. How did this improve you and your peers
Any candidate will need to understand the organisation and what its role is beyond just 'closed book administration'. They are looking for someone who knows the direction the company is heading in but also what you want to know more about. Your best bet is probably looking at the interaction between different roles in Admin Re and how you think your rotation will be affected and influenced by moving around.
