    Most of the questions were quite predictable. I was interviewed with the senior manager of the department and a future colleague who had just been promoted from the position for which I was applying.

    The interviewed lasted 45minutes, then I was left with a 30minutes written assessment. One was a proof reading test, the other one was a verbal reasoning test.

    Most difficult question

    Has someone ever been unhappy with your work? Why?

    Interview tips

    Prepare your knowledge of the company and of the role you are applying for.
    Get ready to be asked common questions but also questions speifically related to the role and the industry.
    Do not hesitate to ask questions prior to your interview, as the HR officers are really helpful and willing to help. This will also help clearing any potential misunderstanding of the role you may have.
    Do ask further questions after your interview, showing a deeper interest in the company.
    Honestly, I think the most important part is to have relevant experience and to demonstrate a genuine interest in the industry.
