    Interview process

    The interview was conducted over the phone. The company responded to my job application on the date that the application was sent. The individual that I spoke to was very useful because they were very supportive throughout the application process and also went through my CV. They were attentive to my needs, for example the fact that I was working over the summer and they replied immediately after the phone call to arrange a meeting for the interview.

    Most difficult question

    Where do you see yourself in the future, say in two to three years.

    Phone interview, make sure that before you send a job application that you research the company, so that you know exactly what you're signing up for. This may sound stupid, but make sure that you know that you want this job because it gives you more of an incentive to work for the role.
