Trainee Recruitment Consultant
Difficulty rating 40.0 / 100
Interview processInitially, I had a brief telephone conversation with a member of the recruitment team. This was to identify my reasons for applying for the job, why i'm interested in the role and my key competencies. I was then invited to a group interview. There was 11 of us at the group interview, all with a diverse range of degrees and experience. We started with an ice breaker to introduce ourselves, this was simply telling everyone our name, our degree and which University we studied at. Next we were split into pairs. Our task was to pick any item from the room and to effectively sell it as the new must have item for 2013, without selling it's original function. For example, a pen could not be sold as a writing implement. We were given a short time to do this. We then presented our item to the group as well as 2 of the companies employees. Our final task was individual. We had to prepare an individual oral presentation on 'why I am suitable for this role'. Again, we were only given a short amount of time to do this. We had to give our presentation to the group as well as to the founder of the company and some of the higher managers. We was also asked to give an interesting fact about ourselves.This presentation was to last no longer than 60 seconds. Afterwards we were told we would be contacted by 4pm in regards to whether or not we were successful.
Most difficult questionThe paired task was very difficult. Although, our idea wasn't important and it was our presentation skills that were, it was difficult to come up with an initial idea.
