    Interview process

    Phone interview was with the recruitment agency (Certus) and I was spotted in the generic assessment day held by the recruitment agency. I later then had a quick one to one interview with them at the assessment day. I got invited for a trial day with them to see how I felt about being at the job and for the staff to see how I interact with their clients and colleagues.

    Interview tips

    Have to sound really optimistic and energetic at the initial one to one interview with management. The director had a very stern face on him so I managed to make him smile and laugh which I thought was a good sign. Give lots of examples to back up what you are saying, even if it is from the same job. It shows you are not just talk. Do mention you are money driven and can work under pressure or tight deadlines.

    If you are offered the trial day, be really pro- active and energetic throughout the day, with clients or colleagues. The senior colleagues will be watching you throughout the day and providing feedback to management. If you impress them, they will pass on positive feedback and more likely to get the job I believe.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Split into a group of 6 and had to perform 2 exercises. The first exercise was to rate the level of importance of each question, and which should be used to qualify a sale with a potential client. The next exercise was how to go about gaining sales. There was a 30secs self- pitch after the exercises, it had to include education, qualification, location and why I would be good for a sales role.
