    Interview tips

    Be yourself and study up on the company before you go, put in info about them at every opportunity you get, there were many internal candidates when I went so it's important not to be at too great a disadvantage.
    All assessors were very approachable so I would suggest having a few questions ready to ask so you look interested.
