    Interview process

    The interview was done via a teleconference as the position was based in Luxembourg. The interview process was really good, everybody was quite prompt and the atmosphere was quite tranquil and comfortable, so much so that I did not even feel the interview time go by. The questions were quite challenging in so far as technical knowledge went as it was my very first interview, however that was a reflection on my poor preparation. Other than that the interviewer was quite humble, polite and jovial.

    Most difficult question

    The most difficult question, I found were the technical question and the one where they asked about weakness, because I am quite a self aware person and I had never contemplated upon my weaknesses. However it was good to have been put on the spot.

    Interview tips

    Always be prompt, if not make sure you phone in and let them know. Be polite, courteous and confident not arrogant but confident. Do not blag any answers if you don't know.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    I have had no experience of assessment centres as yet, all of my interviews have been telephone or face to face.
