    Interview process

    I had a phone interview with someone from recruitment which was just a really relaxed chat about my motivation for applying for the job and my knowledge of the company. It only lasted about 15 minutes and I asked loads of questions at the end. I thought that the interview went really well but got rejected a couple of days later.

    I asked for feedback without much hope because people don't normally feedback after the first round but was called by the same person who interviewed me and she went through every single question and told me how I could improve. This was so helpful. The main point I took from the feedback is that they are looking for people who are really involved in the technology community, so if you have a blog or go to Girl Geek tea parties or even post on twitter about technology a lot I think this will help, otherwise I think there is a very small chance of getting past the first stage.

    Most difficult question

    Interview tips

    Really research ThoughtWorks and have specific examples of why you want to work for them.
