Interview processI received the opportunity to attend this interview through an agency. After registering with the agency and having a mock interview with them, they put my forward for this position.
The day of the interview, I was asked to attend the agency beforehand to practise. I then headed to the interview, which as a group assessment day.
Most difficult questionHaving to stand up and pitch about something that I knew absolutely nothing about was a really difficult thing to do.
Interview tipsMake sure that you are prepared for all possibilities, they could ask you anything.
Experiences at the assessment centreAt my assesment day, there were six other candidates and eight interviewers. We were first asked to get to know our partner and then stand up and introduce them to the room. The questions we had to ask them were things like; "what are your ambitions?" and "who's your greatest influence???? After this, we were each asked to stand up and present a product that we were required to bring to the interview and explain how it represented us now and in the future. I chose batteries (lots of energy, useful, rechargeable etc.), but other candidates chose all sorts of strange items.
The next part of the group interview was a task, which included the candidates acting as if they were on a hot air balloon that was going down, and it could only stay afloat if all but one of the people jumped to their death. Each candidate was given a piece of paper with a celebrity's name on it. I was Jennifer Anniston. I thought this was great as I knew a little bit about her, but then I realised that other candidates were celebrities such as Obama, David Cameron, Usain Bolt and Beyonce. We each had to stand up and pitch why we should be allowed to live, and then the whole group had to debate and come to a joint decision. After a vote, the Obama candidate won. At this stage, myself and another candidate were taken into another room where we were told that our applications had been unsuccessful.
