    Interview process

    Initial telephone interview lasted about 20 minutes with one of the higher ups in the graduate recruitment team. I was asked what attracted to me the role, my skills, strengths and weaknesses and what skills I would like to develop. We also discussed my experiences that were listed on my CV and additional hobbies. I was finally invited to an assessment centre and I was informed of the details of said assessment centre.

    Most difficult question

    Have you ever had a bad experience with an employer, and explain what happened and how it was resolved?

    Interview tips

    Be very outgoing and loud at the assessment centre. It seemed as though that's what the company was looking for. Be well rehearsed in your answers to general questions in regards to why you would want the position, what motivates you and your strengths and weaknesses.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    An elevator pitch.
    Then split into pairs, given 5 minutes to interview each other, and then gives 3 minutes to prepare a 1 minute presentation on your partner which had then to be delivered to the group.
    Finally was a survival task, where we were split into 2 groups of approximately 10. The scenario was that we were stranded on a rubber dinghy in the middle of an ocean, and we had 15 items. The wask was to rank the items in terms of their importance
