Graduate Surveyor, Graduate at CBRE

Application Advice:

When applying research the property industry well. It is less about the rent per sq ft and much more about the general forces on say what will affect retail, how does online retailing affect the demand for space, what about changing work habits and what do these mean for office investment, etc.
Also it is important to have a good rounding. So don't just talk about what you did at school or uni as a subject.
Having gone to Reading, Cass, Oxford Brooks, Cambridge or Oxford really helps here, although non cogs have a good opportunity here as well.

Interview Advice:

Don't name drop although you can mention you know someone. If you do, the interviewers will follow up with said person.
Be aware of the current property news and when a question is asked you can answer it correctly in what you think is right, but it is much more about what people expect to hear: e.g. when asked what affects the property industry in February 2015 I have answered the interest rates of the central bank of England. It's correct but not what people wanted to hear when they wanted to steer the conversation about Cross rail.

Interview the company, what clients do they have, how do they support your APC, how will your rotations work? How is the business structured?

Application Advice:

Make sure you get other people to read through it to spot any mistakes and give you advice on how it comes across. Don't put anything in it that you wouldn't be prepared to explain or defend when asked in an interview. Make sure your application matches with any information that is available via social media such as LinkedIn. Don't copy and paste from one application into another - tailor it to each company even if it takes more time.

Interview Advice:

Remember that the interview is a two way process, it's as much about them getting to know you as you getting to know them. You can get a really good feel about a company just by the receptionist who welcomes you and the atmosphere of the office. Make sure you've done your homework on the company and the types of things that they're involved in, not only in terms of business but also charity work and sports schemes. Make sure you have a few questions lined up to ask at the end, whether it's about what you might expect if you were to work there or how the interviewers got to where they are.
