    Interview process

    The overall interview's first stage was a competency test, 1hr long detailing technical and intricate attributes. Challenging but very thorough, elaboration of your Microsoft package skills, why you were applying for the role and scenario type situations. The second stage of the interview, was a half an hour Skype interview with a company representative, I didn't get this far so I am unable to offer feedback unfortunately.

    Most difficult question

    One of the most difficult questions was explaining software uses; what system tools were for, the advantageous of emulators and disadvantages. I found this particularly hard because if the question was poised to anyone without an expandable n knowledge into software then they wouldn't progress which is a tad unfair because it is primarily focussing on their downfall. I was able to make seen of these questions having that background but I can see where many may struggle and stumble.

    Interview tips

    Well, everyone knows this already and if they don't they should, if you are going for an interview with a prospective company, take some time out to really research the company, learn some important facts and figures, it shows dedication and enthusiasm which always impresses the interviewer.

    Another would be to be completely thorough in your application, screen the responsibilities and duties before applying. Make sure you tick at east 95% of their overall request before clicking the apply now tab.
