    Interview process

    Application was very straight forward - CV and cover letter. This was followed by a phone interview, a 5 minute (pre-recorded) video interview and an assessment centre.

    The phone interview was quick and not too detailed at all - very straight forward. The video interview was 5 questions e.g why do you want to work here etc. - You have a minute to answer each.

    Most difficult question

    Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Such a difficult question to answer for someone still at uni that has had little or no experience in actual workplaces.

    Interview tips

    Really know the company inside out. The whole business as well not just the UK and know what direction they are going in. They have subsidiary companies in the Nordics so be sure to mention them. Also be confident and display that you really would like to work for DC - an exciting and innovative company.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Day begins with basic introductions.
    Then moves into a group task (teams of 3/4 join to solve a real-life business issue and create a presentation to give back to 2/3 interviewers).
    This was followed by a personal presentation everyone had prepared (presented to 2/3 people).
    Lastly there was a 3 on 1 interview which lasted an hour (1 candidate 3 interviewers).
