    Interview process

    My interview lasted around 25 minutes. It was quite stop starty, and that was quite unnerving and difficult. I was asked to demonstrate what abilities in my previous experience and education showed I was capable of undertaking a job role in which I would have to communicate with the public under difficult circumstances. I was asked about what I knew about the company, I researched this a lot and am glad I did even though it didn't mean I got this role.

    Most difficult question

    Describe a specific incident of when you had to deal with communication problems in your previous work experience? How did you overcome this problem? What were the results?

    Interview tips

    Be prepared to be interrupted and don't let it fluster you like I did. For my interview they wanted very specific examples of ways you've demonstrated the companies values. A lot of the time I gave too much information and was stopped throughout.
