Times Top100 Graduate Head Hunter, £40k First Year
Difficulty rating 60.0 / 100
Interview processThe interview took place in a relatively relaxed atmosphere; one on one chat around a small table overlooking the sights of London.
Went through my past experiences and was briefed on the 3 main competences of working in recruitment for which I then had to describe how I matched each competency, giving examples from previous experience. Other questions involved why I wanted to work in recruitment and factors that motivated me personally and why.
The interview lasted around 45mins.
Most difficult questionThe most difficult aspect of the interview was trying to use a range of different examples from previous experience to describe how you demonstrated resilience in a working environment, as it is likely you will experience a number of drawbacks throughout your time in recruitment which you need to be able to pick yourself up from and come back stronger.
Interview tipsMake sure you present yourself immaculately, both the way you dress and the way you speak; clearly, confidently and concisely.
Make sure you have a very good idea on what the company actually does and why you personally want to work in recruitment compared to other areas of work you have already experienced.
Experiences at the assessment centreThe interview was simply me and the interviewer sitting around a small table discussing my competences in relation to the job role for roughly 45mins.
