Interview processBroken down, the interview was made up of three parts; firstly an informal chat with one of the team members, followed by a second interview with the regional directors and finally an online questionnaire.
The first meeting was to establish what I was looking for in a role and what Michael Page were looking for in a candidate. The second meeting was more difficult and involved two role play activities based upon everyday scenarios. Finally came the online questionnaire, comprised of both personal and probing questions and some problem-solving tasks, which I found to be the most challenging part of the interview process.
Most difficult questionA section of the interview consisted of trying to sell myself as a candidate in the third person. I found this particularly difficult as it is something I felt a little awkward doing.
Interview tipsDo your research of the company but more importantly research thoroughly the specific role you are going for and really be prepared to talk yourself up in front of strangers, something which can at first seem rather daunting.
Experiences at the assessment centreI undertook two role playing activities in which I was given possible hiccups to deal with. For example, you have put somebody into a job role set to start next Monday. The candidate calls you the Friday before and explains they have accepted another role with anther company. My task was then to call the prospective employer, explain the situation and suggest possible solutions.
