What are the best and worst things about your job?

Great group of colleagues on my first project. The teams work well as a group and I can easily spend days on a project with the team as no one behaves in a negative manner. The pay is good too but that can be offered in a bad job too but at Capgemini there are many financial opportunities to grow along with advancement opportunities in the field of work.

Be yourself. My interview was a little different to normal interviews but it was more of an informal chat. Do your research into Capgemini and their values. Know what the role entails and be sure in why you are applying.

Remember that one of the things you are being assessed on is whether you could be put in front of a client, so act professionally throughout.

Application Advice:

Anything you write on your CV should discuss the impact you had in the particular role you played.

Interview Advice:

When making assumptions on a case study interview, choose easy numbers to multiply. Research the industries the company operates in and the trends within these markets.

Attend recruitment events (especially our Introduction to Strategy Day) to meet people in person and get a feel for the company - it will allow you to make a more accurate assessment of your fit at Teneo, and will also help you to make your application stand out.

Interview Advice:

Do as much preparation as you can - both for the case interview and the CV/fit interview. But don't allow that preparation to leave you rigid and inflexible - engage with your interviewer and be reactive to the specific questions that they are asking you on the day.

Business Analyst, at Capgemini UK plc

Application Advice:

Prepare! Do practice case studies before the real deal. Always think before you speak - this is a skill which not many people naturally have, make sure to practice it before you do an interview. Always sense-check your answers - is what you are saying reasonable? Does it make sense?

Interview Advice:

Interviews follow a pretty standard consulting interview pattern - CV chats, case studies, and finally a partner presentation with some prep time. Our interviewers are generally nice and helpful, we're not trying to make you fail. In general, being reasonable and showing you can think in a structured way is more important than getting to the right answer. Always read all the information you're given, ask sensible questions, sense-check your answers, and engage with the interviewer. Preparation is key: practice mental maths (especially under pressure!), case studies, as well as open-ended qualitative "so what" questions. Make sure to prepare for the CV chat as well. Lots of people struggle providing coherent answers to very simple questions. Even if a question is straightforward and you know what you'd like to answer, take a second to structure your response before you launch into it. And finally, be friendly and communicative! We are looking for nice colleagues who are capable of working in teams. Not being able to take direction from the interviewer, or not being able to ask sensible questions if you're unsure of something, is a bad sign.

You do not need any car knowledge, you just need to demonstrate that you are bright and energetic. You have real responsibilities in your role.

Interview Advice:

Research competency based interviews and find an example of each competency e.g. 'Tell me about a time you had to lead a team to do something they did not want to do' would be an influencing competency question. It is all about what you personally have done previously and what the outcome was.

You're not expected to know anything - my interview was with a load of tecchies and I've never coded a day in my life. The interviewers are more interested in your personality, how you interact with peers and superiors, and how you approach new challenges.

- Research the Company, know who their competitors are, who their customers are, know what they offer. Conduct a SWOT analysis on the company - have some case studies where Capgemini have achieved results working with their clients.
- Research the role; this can be tricky when you have limited information on the website about the role. Read graduate blogs, connect with Capgemini on social media and go along to insight events, make and build connections with Capgemini employees to help you better understand the role.
- Practice psychometric testing to ensure you're giving yourself the best opportunity to succeed at the tests.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself - it is such a cliche statement but it is so important, this is the first time you will meet people from the business and you need to gauge if it is right for you, as well as the company assessing your strengths

SAP Consultant (Security), Apps UK at Capgemini UK plc

Application Advice:

Read the questions provided carefully (if relevant) and begin by wireframing your answer rather than diving in - since there will probably be a word count it's important to lay out individual headings that address each part of each question, and then put the rest of the text in afterwards.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you research on questions often asked at interviews and create a spreadsheet of "STAR" examples - situation unfolding, task required, action taken, result seen. Do your best to memorise this and you can easily answer questions such as "tell me about a time when you failed to meet expectations" or similar. Have similar examples for relevant hard and soft skills.

With the application, I would answer any questions in the process honestly, but make sure you sell yourself at the same time. Don't make your answers too concise, but, at the same time, don't make them overly long.

Interview Advice:

The interview is strength-based and these are quite difficult to prepare for. My advice would be to do as much preparation as you feel comfortable with, but don't over prepare as this will mean some questions will likely throw you off guard and you also risk sounding if your answers are pre-prepared which is not what is required.

Application Advice:

Personal projects (especially ones relating to skills asked for in the job description) are a great way to flesh out short CVs. They're not looking for everything on the list but you should at least know what everything means and have done research on it.

Interview Advice:

It's an assessment day with a chance to ask both HR and someone in your field questions. There's a 1-2-1 interview and a team assessment as well. The hardest question I was asked was something like "Can you give me an example of a time when you've used enterprise data management tools?" or something similar. I didn't understand what it meant and the interviewer could only explain the question so much (for reference examples of databases, data visualisation or ETL tools were what he was looking for).

Everyone is very nice, they'll give you time to think and don't pressure you.

It is equally important to be yourself and show your personality. It is very much a people company and if you can show that you have good people skills alongside good business instinct.

It's also really good to think of engaging questions to ask throughout the assessment center.

Don't settle for anything you're not passionate about.

Interview Advice:

Be fun and enthusiastic. Try to demonstrate a broad range of experiences rather than talking about the same role all the time. Practice possible questions. Make sure you do your research about the organisation and throw in a couple of facts about them to impress them. Use the STAR technique but also following it with what you learned and how you link it to the role.

Application Advice:

Be really clear about why you want to join Volkswagen Group UK - of all the companies in the UK, why exactly VWG and why exactly the graduate scheme as opposed to any other path?
Try to find out more about the company from the people who work here - connect with them on LinkedIn, ask them about their experience, what they like and don't like, would they recommend, etc.
Visit some of our retailers - with 5 brands across the whole UK, there surely is a showroom within easy drive of where you are, so make sure you experience our products, people and culture before starting your application.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared for competency-based interviews - they are not designed to catch you out, but having published the competencies on our recruitment website, you'd be expected to have prepared some relevant and thoughtful examples to demonstrate the skills we're looking for!
Be relaxed during the assessment centre and remember you are not competing against the other candidates, you are competing against the criteria, so don't tread on each other, collaborate, that's what VWG is all about!
You will have plenty of opportunities for networking during the assessment centre, so make the most of them as they could be your key to a position in VWG even if the graduate scheme is not exactly suitable for you!

Application Advice:

When applying, focus on what have you done in the past (past working experience, Uni projects), rather than you skill-set. You need to provide evidence that you have applied your skills, don't just state that you are good in this and that.

Interview Advice:

You are usually asked 'Give us an example when...' questions in addition to the standard questions like 'What do you know about our company' and 'What do you know about our site/products/services'. Do research about the business before the interview, make yourself familiar with what they do on site. Also, when asked to bring an example, use STAR technique (Situation, task, action, result) to answer. Google that up.
Also, you need to show that you are a passionate about what you do and what you want to do while on the internship year.

Application Advice:

Focus on your experiences, what have you done in the past that could be used at Volkswagen? Think about when you've been set a challenge at work, or in life and you haven't only completed it, but you've gone above and beyond.

Be creative, research and understand the company's background, you don't need to know the ins and outs of how a car works, but it's helpful to know the company structure, the brands we have and the relationship with the Retail Network.

If you have experience in another industry, try and link that to Automotive, we're a very old fashioned industry, what do other industries do well that we don't appear to do?

Operational Finance Intern, at GE
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

GE has an amazing culture which every employee takes on board in their work. I would read very carefully through the values, which can be found on the website, and compare your own values to these. If you think you would be a good fit, specifically include these values in your application to highlight this and explain why. Bear in mind that all applications are reviewed internally first before being sent to specific business areas. Therefore in the early stages, you have to show in your CV that you will fit in with the business. You will have to show why you want the specific job role if you get through to the interview stage.

Interview Advice:

GE doesn't use assessment centres, you have to pass through CV, competency tests, and a video interview, then your CV will go out to specific business areas where the manager will invite you for a phone or face-to-face interview. Therefore you will have the chance to see exactly who your manager will be and potentially meet some of the team you will be working with. The interview was less stressful than I had anticipated. It was conducted in quite a relaxed style asking a mixture of strength based and role specific questions, although no question was too challenging to answer. However, from other interns in different job sectors I have learnt some questions they were asked were very abstract and wanted a creative answer. Clearly there are some straight forward questions HR require all managers to ask applicants, but every manager also asks about topics they are personally interested in too. Just stay true to yourself, and use the interview as a chance to see if you would be happy working for the person interviewing you.

Application Advice:

Be prepared. GE is a company with a strong code of ethics and really emphasises this across the company and in the workplace. Be excellent and be yourself, the slogan for GE is "imagination at work" so make sure that your creative/innovative side really shows. This company still tries to follow the same principles of its founder, Thomas Edison.

Interview Advice:

I had no HR presence in my interview, only two members of the technical team. It was also much more of a conversation than an interview. I did have to demonstrate a high level of technical understanding and show that I could fit well into the team by being agile and flexible, but still having a tangible personality.

Application Advice:

I feel as though my degree was a baseline to getting an interview for the job, and in my interview, I talked more about experience I had outside of purely studying, so it would be very helpful for candidates to have relevant experience. I also felt that I was able to show a genuine interest in the role because sustainability is something that I care about personally, and I think that came across in my application and interviews. I think showing passion and confidence is important.

Interview Advice:

- Give a short presentation about the NUS Green Impact programme and why it was important
- How would you motivate people who are not necessarily interested in the environment to engage with sustainable behaviours?

Do your research about that sector before the interview. For example, my role was about household food waste minimisation. So I researched information about the level of food waste in the UK, and the environmental and economic impact of that on the household food waste on themselves and local area. I also looked at schemes that had already been run with similar aims.
I also practised competency questions, with examples of when I displayed particular skills.

2) Depending on the sector you've applied for (aviation, oil & gas etc.) prepare accordingly for the technical part of the interview, the competency parts should be identical.

3) Be honest in your situational judgement test. If you fail this test, it means you probably don't fit as a personality in the company => you will suffer and so will your colleagues.

GE likes people who are enthusiastic, open to change and accept failure but learn from it. You are encouraged to speak up about problems or inefficiencies in your processes but come up with ideas for solutions and be prepared to follow through with them.

Interview Advice:

Questions asked are related to the GE beliefs and how you demonstrate your ability to follow them. My advice would be to do some research on the company and its culture.

I was given some scenarios which I could be faced with while at work, and I had to come up with possible solutions. What I did was to jump to a possible solution, rather than focusing on the process.

Application Advice:

Candidates should focus on what they can offer to the firm. GE are looking for like minded people who will add value and not just complete their training and then leave.

Interview Advice:

Demonstrating good technical knowledge is important but what happens in theory and in practice is very different and GE won't expect candidates to be experts. Most applicants will come across similar on paper and so the interview provides candidates with a chance to differentiate themselves from the rest. Candidates should think about their interests, strengths and weakness as ultimately the purpose of the interview is to allow the firm to get to know candidates and determine if they will fit in well.

Know our brands and their purpose. Have a look at our values and our performance ambition if they're available on the corporate website, all employees are aware of these and they say a lot about our culture. Be willing to travel globally and try to have a "growth mindset."

Interview Advice:

As above. The assessment centre or "final audition" is a new process this year which is designed so that you are acting as a business leader and making decisions about the business, you can't prepare for it but just be prepared to have a stretching and challenging yet enjoyable day. It will almost all be group work.

For the video interview I found it helpful to prepare with post it notes and stick these around my laptop screen.

The Diageo values are very important to the company: read them, understand their meaning and application and check if they are aligned with your own before you apply.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared for a challenging assessment centre. Make sure you come prepared for both group exercises and individual presentations. The time you are given for each task is short make sure you keep that in mind at all times!

Graduate, Supply Chain at Diageo

Application Advice:

Sounds clichéd but definitely be yourself as authenticity is incredibly important.
Let academic achievements take a back seat, as they are looking to see what you have learnt from all different aspects of your life.
Speak to people! Whether it is the other candidates on the assessment day, or the reviewers themselves, as they give the best indication of what working at Diageo is really like.
Treat it as a learning opportunity, even if you don't get the position.

Interview Advice:

It is a two way conversation so ask plenty of (well-informed) questions - you are trying to work out if you are a good fit as much as the reviewer is.
Again, don't just go on about academic achievements - you have done plenty of other things that are better indicators of what you are really like and where your interests truly lie.

Application Advice:

I believe the current policy is to hire for the person, then the function and then the role.

This means that if they like you, but you're not suited to the role then you can still find yourself with a job in another department (as happened to a friend of mine). The flip side though, is that if you're well suited to the role, but you're not the right type of person for Diageo then you won't get any job.

Highlight thinks which make you interesting and your connection and / or interest with the industry. Willingness and/or experience of travelling / living abroad is also a plus, I think.

Interview Advice:

The key, in my view, is to be collaborative, and somebody that people want to work with rather than trying come across as someone who thinks they're the best.

Application Advice:

Put the time and effort into your application and video interviews. Diageo really put time into hiring the right graduates for the programme and expect you to do the same.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and go for it. The application and interview process can be nerve wrecking and hard at times, but they really do try and get the best out of you. They choose people who will fit into the company well.
For my graduate intake, the interview process included a roleplay, presentation, interview and group exercise. It is a long day, but actually was enjoyable and I felt on the day I had done my best and that is all anyone can do. So that would also be a point of advice, do you best, don't walk out thinking "I could have done this better."

Application Advice:

In addition to the usual sources of information about working at Capgemini (website, careers fair etc), I would highly recommend reading some of the blogs on the website before applying. The CDC blog in particular is fantastic for learning exactly what you will do as a consultant, the lessons learnt from others on the grad scheme and other hints/tips. It is written by CDCers (grad scheme). The capability teams also have blogs, so it's a great source to get an insight into the type of work the team does and the thought leadership on some of the main topics affecting that team.

Example blogs:
-CDC blog: https://www.uk.capgemini-consulting.com/blog/cdc-blogs
-Consumer Experience blog: https://www.capgemini-consulting.com/blog/customer-experience

Interview Advice:

There is a strong emphasis on teamwork so make sure at the team exercise you assert your opinions without overpowering the rest of the group and take on board other people's opinions.

You will be given a case study to prepare for beforehand and I recommend you take the time to prepare this well. Make sure you can get the main points across in the time allocated for this exercise.

In addition to the case study you will be asked the standard competency questions which you can prepare for.

Application Advice:

Always do research on the company values and ambitions. It is extremely important to make sure that these match with your own personal ambitions, otherwise you will find yourself working for a company where you do not believe in what you are doing. This will lead to low job satisfaction as well as low productivity, which is not beneficial for you nor the company.

Interview Advice:

Be confident and be yourself. The company is looking for independent people who are prepared to challenge and drive forward new ideas. They do not want clones to come and work for them. Saying this, they are also not looking for people who are overly arrogant in themselves.

Application Advice:

Take time to research the company and talk to some current grads, and work out what differentiates it from its competitors. The culture is surprisingly different and for some people it's exactly what they need to flourish, but others might prefer a more corporate and rigid structure.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. Sorry to whip out a cliche, but half of the interview is about your competence and the other half is about your fit. If you fit the company culture then that is a big plus, if not then it doesn't really matter how great you do in the tests. This goes both ways - take the chance to ask as many questions as you can to find out about the company, as you need to decide if you want to work here.

I would do your research into the key areas of the business and learn some of the clients and work which Gerald Eve are involved with. I would also make sure that you act yourself in the interview, and let your personality come through - as I said above, it's a real positive if you know your facts and figures regarding the market place, but having a personality with a real passion for other things in life other than property can definitely help your application.

Relax In the interview - they want to employ people who are comfortable communicating and presenting to people they don't know. First impressions are key.

Application Advice:

A straightforward process to apply initially with a few essay questions, CV and covering letter. If successful they will invite you to an assessment centre consisting of group tasks involving a scenario where you had to debate amongst a group and then come together with a decision to present back.
The individual task was a writing one, whereby, another scenario was given and we had to draft a response to a client within a set timeframe. The interview was 40 minutes to an hour and included both HR and competency based questions. They like to hear your desire to work hard, learn and most of all your commitment to your APC, so if you already have experience towards this, it is a big help.
The good thing about Gerald Eve in comparison to other middle to large consultancies is they invite you to an assessment day then within a week of attending you will know your outcome, whereas other firms can take months with several stages, which can be frustrating.

Interview Advice:

Revise the following questions:
• Why GE?
• What experience do you have to date, is this related to your APC?
• What do you want to work in property?
• What are GE’s core values?
• Who is GE’s managing partner?
• What current news have you heard about GE/ the property industry?
• What are your weaknesses / strengths?
Finally ask good questions to your interviewers! Harder the better and ones that make you stand out.

Application Advice:

General application advice follows in this scenario as well. Make sure your application is edited and checked, as well as truthful. GE likes candidates form all backgrounds, as long as they can demonstrate an affinity (even if they have no direct experience) to the role and the GE way of working. Anything you can mention in you application about running improvement projects or simplifying processes - regardless of context - will earn you bonus points here.

Interview Advice:

With the phone interview, the most important thing to show is that you want the role and want to take it further than its job description. It will be a standard, fairly relaxed competency based call, but aside from key skills and experiences, the interviewer will be looking for examples of proactivity and a passion to perform.

With the face to face, the interviewer is concerned about confidence (as one would expect), but also that you can demonstrate an ability with the core functions of the role. For an analytical role for example, you will probably be asked to demonstrate how you would work out some analytical based problems (for example, the number of people passing through arrivals at an international airport per x amount of time).

Application Advice:

Know the firm, know exactly why it is that you want to work here and make those reasons clear, but also state why those reasons that attract you to the firm are important to you. 'I want to work for Weil because its a top PE firm'. Okay great, but why do YOU care that it is a top PE firm?

Be frank about why you want to be a lawyer, help the reader see your journey to that decision.

Have interesting extra-curricular activities that will make you stand out. Say something personal about yourself, that will make graduate recruitment want to meet you.

Interview Advice:

You will always be asked about PE, so make sure that you have a very strong understanding of the mechanics of PE and also why you are interested in it. Understand what exactly it is about Weil that makes you want to come here, what sets it apart from all its other competitors. Always have well thought out questions to ask the interviewer in the end, preferably something about themselves (everyone loves to talk about themselves). Make sure that you read your application form again and you have answers for anything they might ask you based on that, especially if there is something exceptionally good or bad on your form.

If you want quick progression and are willing to work hard - apply. You don't have to be a petrol head either.
Have a 1/2 page CV based around experience. Work experience should be your key focus. Also make sure you highlight your key achievements and the things that will stand out. Don't worry about including everything, especially things that are going to be quite common across most applications - you want to include the things that stand out and get you noticed.

Volkswagen Group are looking for future leaders, people who have the right attitude, are proactive, and want to add value and drive change. Think about examples where you have been given a job to do, and you haven't just completed the task, you have gone over and above and made a difference. The industry is outdated in many ways and if you are creative and ambitious you couldn't be in a better place. They are trying to identify the right attitude. We are a people business, so it is important to be personable and someone they believe will be credible, believable and influential in the business. Think of leadership examples.

Ensure you are passionate about sustainability. This is best shown through volunteering experience in the environmental sector. I have found this experience critical when applying for environmental jobs and your passion is definitely needed to be a SPA.

Interview Advice:

If you are applying to be a SPA at a University make sure you have researched the sustainability issues that Universities face- eg. energy, procurement, waste management. Use the STAR technique to answer questions regarding your skills. There will most likely be a question regarding your abilities to project manage and communicate sustainability effectively as well as which area of sustainability you are most interested in.

Application Advice:

Although the role is for technical engineering, GE will be looking for future leaders of the organisation. Bare this in mind when applying, having 100% is all well and good but if you can't communicate or don't have any initiative, you won't get far.

Interview Advice:

You will go through a telephone interview followed by an assessment day which will consist of 5 interviews and a presentation. It's not as bad as it seems, the telephone interview is more of a chat than an interview to see if you are the right candidate for the job, just be clear and up front with your goals for a program and you'll be fine (just mention things such as "applying what I have learned in university whilst learning new technical and professional skills").

The assessment day is tiring, but not that difficult. You will have a tecnical "interview" (more of a chat) about what you have completed so far in uni and internships. The rest will be basically the same questions reworded to direct the answer towards a different subject i.e. team work, leadship etc.

Application Advice:

As well as having good knowledge, you must be proficient in communicating with the public and possibly other groups. Having the ability to explain issues in a way that can be understood by diverse groups (from the level schoolchildren may understand, to that of a councillor) is very useful.

Interview Advice:

Always study your person specification and job description well. The employer will most likely model their questions around the person spec - and follow it closely.

They may add in the odd question such as "Do you feel you are creative in your work? Do you have examples of this?" and "What motivates you?" - but generally, in terms of what they really want to know - can you do the job - they will stick to the person specification.

Application Advice:

Online Application: Take your time and be as honest as possible. If you are turned down at this stage it's because you either don't fit the personality profile of the company or because you don't meet the requirements.

Phone Interview: Was very straightforward, took around 30 minutes and had an answer saying I'd passed 2 hours later. Make sure you know about the Systems Development Lifecycle and can talk about things you have done in a given context (situation where you showed leadership, etc..)

Assessment Day: Split into four parts: Written test, Face-to-Face Interview, Role Play, Group Scenario.

Written test is straightforward. Verbal reasoning for Technology stream, Verbal and Numerical reasoning for Manangement Consulting stream.

Face-to-Face interview: Similar advice to the telephone interview. Be yourself and make sure you have examples to show off your personality and roundedness

Role Play (one-on-one): Varies from year to year, you are given the topic in advance for the tech stream and on the day for the management consulting stream. If on tech stream, make sure you prepare thoroughly and bring a 'wow factor'.

Group role play: Don't dominate the conversation, it's tempting to steal the spotlight but they want to see you working together and being 'collaborative'.

Interview Advice:

Be honest, show integrity and collaborative spirit, be passionate about the area of technology that interests you, have an understanding of some of their key projects within the Business Unit you are applying for. If possible through internet research, show them how you want to bring 'value added'.

PMO, Project Managment at London Stock Exchange Group

Application Advice:

Know about what the company does. Capital markets is around about 20% of what we do - the London Stock Exchange Group has a whole host of companies, from a major clearing house, to a hugely lucrative index business, to a huge amount of financial technology services and products. The Group also owns most of the Italian financial market infrastructure.

Have a clue about finance. By this I mean you need to understand the whys of financial markets. Finance is a transportation business with two purposes; to move risk from people who don't want it to people who do want it, and to move capital from people who have it but don't have anything to do with it, to entrepreneurs etc. who desperately need it. THAT is at the very heart of what the Exchange does, and it is a pivotal part of generating economic growth. It is NOT enough to simply know what an option is and how to price it - you need to understand the financial services industry from a holistic perspective, and how it has grown and evolved over the past 10 years due to regulatory pressures and changes in economic environment.

Interview Advice:

You will almost certainly have an interview with someone from LCH.Clearnet. This means that you should know what LCH.Clearnet does, have some idea of how clearing works, what initial and variation margin is, and what how risk is evaluated (VAR models).

Display an interest in people - your interviewers, your fellow candidates, and the people who come and talk to you at lunch. This is the best way to find out whether you want to work here or not, and to actually succeed on the grad programme.

Application Advice:

Don't think you have to be a particular kind of person to apply. LSEG is such a diverse organisation that my advise would be to research the company as thoroughly as possible and if it interest you, understand why and be able to communicate this succinctly.

In terms of more general advise, think about the skills that you have and how they could be applied, and perhaps where you think this role could help you develop. If you can demonstrate that you have thought carefully about how you are trying to position and develop yourself, and can display a genuine interest in the group, I think that puts you in a strong position.

Interview Advice:

Know the different areas of the group, read through recent news stories and think about how they might impact LSEG, even if the company is not mentioned directly (e.g. how might the UK General Election impact on LSEG).

Be honest
Know the company inside out - what are the full range of services we offer, who are our competitors, what were our financials last year (how is the company performing as a whole), what do you think this role involves day to day
Focus on your achievements and give concrete examples - not just fluffy "we did this and then we achieved this" - great to show you worked as part of a team, but how did YOU actually add value to the team, what did YOU actually do
Personality as as important as qualifications - people being our main asset and it being a genuinely people focused culture, it's as important that you're a good fit personality wise and vice versa as all the skills you might bring. Know our values well (modesty, honesty, fun etc.) as that's exactly the kind of person Capgemini are looking for
Have an idea of your longer term career aspirations
Ideally talk to someone who has done the role in the company (try use your network/get in touch with someone on LinkedIn) - get the most accurate view of what it really is like

Interview Advice:

Much of the same as above
In the group exercise, be careful to achieve a balance between speaking up and voicing your opinion and listening and taking on board others' opinion and not taking over - this is key
Have questions for the interviewer too - try to think up challenging ones as well as just asking the generic qs.
Know your presentation well - e.g. if a case study and you mention a technology in your solution, really know why you've chosen cloud for example. Don't just read from a load of slides, how you present is very important
Be confident and if one area doesn't go well, don't fret, you can compensate for it by doing well in the other areas of the assessment centre - it's all taken into account
Practice for the numerical and verbal, no matter how confident you are in your ability, you're in a pressurised environment on the day so every bit of practice helps
Again, make sure your personality comes through - at the end of the day, you're going to need to be someone they'd like to work with!

Application Advice:

The application is relatively straightforward with a CV, cover letter and a few questions. Make sure you get as much across about yourself and your personality as possible and link everything to Gerald Eve. Don't just put your property experience, any work experience is good and any extra-curricular activities you are involved with so you have a talking point for your interview.

Interview Advice:

The interview is an assessment day. It involves a group task, a written task and an interview with a member of HR and a Gerald Eve partner. It is not focussed on technical property knowledge, everyone will want to know about you as a person and whether you would fit into Gerald Eve or not so it is best to be yourself and talk to as many Gerald Eve employees as possible.

Interview Advice:

As above. Be yourself. Engage with your interviewers and take any opportunity to build a rapport with them. Again avoid generic answers. This will bore the interviewers and they won't remember you. Worse still they may leave with the impression that their valuable fee earner time was wasted. Prepare and prepare some more. The more you prepare the more confident you can be going in to the interview. The more confident you are the better rapport you will build with your interviewers and the more likely you are to succeed.

Application Advice:

Be confident in your application and stress all the skills that your experiences have given you (although you probably haven't ever seen those experiences in that light before). For example, a camping trip with friends may have taught you how to budget and take decisions as a group.

Interview Advice:

Recognise that your interview is not for a school or university - it is for a business role where you may eventually carve out a career and will have to deal with responsibility falling squarely on your own shoulders. Interviewers want to see that you are adult enough to take that responsibility. Your natural soft skills (smile!) and cv will show that you can also work in a team and interact with clients.
Although it's not very British, there is little room for self deprecation in an interview (plenty of room for it once you get in).

Interview Advice:

Relax, but don't be too relaxed. Keep the conversation on your selling points - of course you need to have figured out what your selling points are, and how they are backed up by all the experiences, jokes and interesting stories that you are planning to tell.

Application Advice:

Go to a grad recruitment event if you can. When there, ask the grad recruitment staff what they want to see in your personal statement.
Have two or three friends read through your application to check for typos.
It goes without saying, if you're still in university, try to improve your grades as much as you can. Working that extra hour a day will pay off in the long-run.
Try to get work experience under your belt at soon as possible. It doesn't have to be in the City or even commercial law (although it will be great if it is). Just pop into a local solicitor's office and ask for a week's work experience. If you do that two or three times you will be able to show the bigger firms that you’re committed to becoming a lawyer.
Make sure to build up your CV’s “non-law sections”. Pursue your hobbies. It is more than likely that your interviewers will be interested in these and ask you about them in your interview.
Go to open days. Many of the City firms run some form of open day. These are great as they allow you to understand what the firms are looking for in applications.

Interview Advice:

There were two interviews when I applied to Freshfields. The first interview was with a partner and an associate. It was quite relaxed. They asked me a range of competency questions. The questions I was asked included, "what are your strengths and weaknesses", "why law and not banking" (I had a business background), "give us an example of a time you were part of team” etc.

There is also a second interview which revolves around a newspaper article which is given to candidates on the day. Most people find this interview a little harder. My advice would be to take a commonsensical approach. The interviewers aren't looking for someone with intricate knowledge of the commercial world. You need to demonstrate that you are able to understand the client's concerns. Ask yourself, what is the business in the article trying to achieve and what strategy is it taking to achieve that goal. Are there any other alternative approaches that might work for this business?

Make sure you tailor your application to the firm. Think of something different you can say about why you're applying to Freshfields (ie. you've met people at law fairs or events and you feel like you'd really fit in with the people at Freshfields), rather than the usual generic sentences about how much you want to be a commercial lawyer.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. If the firm is right for you, you'll get an offer. If you're not yourself, you may end up at the wrong firm.

Don't try and second guess the questions; treat it as an interesting conversation you might have over dinner.

Application Advice:

Take time over it. Get your friends, family and anyone else who is willing to read it. Be prepared to accept changes in your application.

The structure is key. I always used the approach of:
1) My interests relevant to you;
2) Why I like you;
3) Why it matches up, and other work experience which has helped me arrive here; and
4) Conclude

Interview Advice:

1) Your application is the basis so expect questions from that;
2) Research the firm and read up on the news.
3) Have an opinion on the news and/or the article. You can read the FT back to front and the Economist back to front but unless you have an opinion on it its useless.
4) Go to other sources for your opinions - consider articles you wouldn't think of reading.
5) No one is trying to trip you up. Relax into it.
6) Do not be afraid to pause and think. It may seem like you have paused for ages but you won't have. It means you can formulate a structure which is better than a stream of consciousness.

Application Advice:

Freshfields give you the opportunity to write a personal statement rather than having to answer application questions so it can be more personal. Make sure your spelling and grammar in the personal statement is flawless. Demonstrate why you are interested in this firm specifically for example the international nature of the deals as Freshfields is proud of the way it provides a seamless service to clients around the globe. Mention any times you have interacted with the firm (open days, law fairs etc) and how much you like the people that work here and why you think you would fit in.

Interview Advice:

There is a case study exercise where you discuss a report on a company or a news article with a partner and an associate. They don't expect you to know anything about the subject matter, it seems more like a test of whether you can have a nice conversation so be really enthusiastic and the more it goes off on an interesting tangent the better. The interview part of the process is much like any other law firm - just be ready to explain your CV and the choices you made (subject/university/any previous jobs) and why you want to work at Freshfields specifically, and as a solicitor generally. I found enthusiasm and being able to understand and explain the role of a solicitor made up for my lack of a vacation placement.

Application Advice:

Focus on the personal statement: what is driving you to apply and what can you bring to the role? Read up on City transactions/deals. Work on spelling and grammar if needed. Be clear about your strengths and skills and be prepared to back your claims up with real-life examples. Be friendly and enthusiastic.

Interview Advice:

Don't worry too much about being put on the spot or giving a somewhat incorrect answer; as long as you are thoughtful, logical and friendly the odd error won't matter too much. Try to understand City deals as much as possible - read guides and keep up with the Economist or the FT during the application process at least.

Application Advice:

Avoid rhetoric. You are not writing a university application. Be down to earth and straightforward. Highlight the elements you feel are important from your CV, but don't boast about them. Tell them why you think they are significant. Don't be afraid to be yourself - if you have a passion for music, theatre or sport, don't be afraid to highlight this because you think the only thing they are interested in is your commercial awareness. Far from it - they will be impressed by your extracurricular activities.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, keep calm - just be prepared to talk honestly about who you are and what you've done in your life so far.

Apply early and apply for vacation schemes - a lot of the people I recognised when I started were from my Vac Scheme and getting one guarantees a traning contract interview. Read over and over your application; you cannot overedit.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. I gave opinions that I thought would be slightly controversial in a corporate environment (like higher education should be funded by a graduate tax and that I was part of the student protest against fee rises) but that did not seem to matter. They want to get to know you a little to see if you will fit in with teams so be personable and honest.

Application Advice:

Don't use the word "relish" in your application form, and don't write things in the form just to appear clever. You will get picked up on them at interview. People want to know why you are interested in law, but aren't interested in you talking about things you know very little about and in respect of which you only pretend to be interested.

Interview Advice:

Don't expect to get asked technical legal questions. You will need to show a genuine interest for law and the commercial world. The analytical interview is very tough, but you've got to approach it in a common sense way. You might be expected to know what a share or a dividend is, but there is no way on earth you would be expected to tell them about structured financial products or the price of crude oil on a given day.

GE values people who have strong leadership, analytical, problem-solving, interpersonal and team working skills. In addition to it excellent communication skills and ability to articulate technical problems clearly and able to relate to a non-technical audience is essential if you were to apply for Edison Engineering Development Program (EEDP). Always seek to develop these skills through work experience, voluntary activities and University course. These skills will stand out in the CV and job application process.

Interview Advice:

Be confident and positive. Make your answers clear and put your thoughts and process into any technical questions or problems you are asked to solve. Know about the GE core values and businesses. Relate your skills and expertise to the job role and identify where you can contribute and make impact in the business.

Application Advice:

Say why specifically Freshfields, show what skills you have and apply them i.e. say why having these skills make you good for the job, for example doing team sports shows youre a team player which is great as solciitors always work in teams and you have to show your / pull your own weight. If you don't have legal experience then talk about your other experience, I wrote about my part time waitressing job at Frankie & Benny's and they asked about it at interview.

Interview Advice:

Don't worry too much, it really is quite relaxed, more of a chat where they want to know that they could spend 12 hours a day in an office with you. Do all the general prep, reading about the firm etc. I got asked why one of my grades was lower than the others (be honest, I just said I didn't enjoy it, got behind and never really caught up). Don't just regurgitate the website to your interviewers, they can tell when you do this. Be yourself. find an example of something the firm has worked on recently that interests you and you can talk about. If you don't like reading the FT/Economist then dont! There's no need to, try BBC news online (the business pages) instead.

In the Edison program, they are looking for good engineers and future leaders. However "future leader" does not necessarily mean future manager, it can also be engineers expert in their domain. The good point into GE is that there are various paths to grow into your career and become a leader (you can become team leader, technology leader, business leader .... ). My advice would be to underline your technical knowledge and what you think to grow many aspects through the graduate scheme (technical expertise, communication skills, leadership,etc.)

Application Advice:

Focus on learning. Too many people come straight out of university and are already referring to themselves as a 'leader' on their C.V. No one, no matter how book smart you are, is a leader at 21/22. Up until this point you've only learned how to lead yourself. Being a leader of a team, in a global company, is something entirely different and requires a different set of skills.

Be present. Stop focusing on where you want to be in 6, 12, 18 months time and just get on with it. Do your very best at the job you've been given and people will notice. People of our generation have grown up in a culture of narcissism where a good hair day, muscles, or a well timed joke can get you noticed by thousands in a matter of hours. In the workplace, sustained and valiant effort is the only way you will gain the sort of notoriety worth having.

Have a loose picture of where you want to be in ten years but don't always go searching for that next promotion before you even have a foot in the door. Don't ask your interviewer 'So how can I get your job?'. Talk about development, observation.

Interview Advice:

Make a word doc. of commonly asked interview questions (hello Google), and questions you think may come up based on the position you're applying for. Practice these over and over with your mum/dad/friends. Know some stock answers for your run of the mill competency questions, and how to tailor them when those questions are tweaked.

Ask the people around you for honest critque. Do you 'um' too much, stutter, speak too fast or too quiet? All stuff you'd rather have them point out than a HR Manager over the phone when they tell you that you were unsuccessful this time round. Practice presenting in front of a group of friends. You're all going through the same thing, so they should be understanding. Why not all have a go? Make a list of dos and don'ts - they all have to drink for every 'do' you manage to work in, and you have to drink for every don't!

What GE expects from people applying for this program is the following skills:

- Leadership potential: this program has for goal to train GE's future leaders. You need to be able to lead people, to take decisions quickly, and to take initiatives.

- Adaptability: ITLPs need to accept the fact that they might move in a new position and new location every 6 months during 2 years.

- Strong analytical skills: ITLPs will be given challenging positions to complete in a short time-lapse. Being able to understand the challenges quickly and to bring solutions in a timely manner is critical.

Even though this is an IT position, people without any IT background will be accepted if they show the required skills.

Application Advice:

The graduate scheme involves 32 weekly lectures w/ homework and a project to be completed outside of project time. Graduates spend around 20 hours per week extra completing this work so make sure you are fully aware of this before applying/ accepting the role. The quality of these courses is not great and not what you would expect from one of the biggest companies in the world. You are also not paid for it but if you fail you can lose your job (hmm.).

Interview Advice:

Interview process consists of an initial telephone interview where they chat to you about your degree and what kind of technical knowledge you have. This part isn't difficult and they concentrate more on you as a person rather than how much you know.

The final part is the assessment centre. You will have to give a 10 minute presentation about yourself in-front of around 5-10 people. From there you will have 5 interviews in quick succession. Each interview will be based on different aspects of your ability (Technical, management, team work, ...can't remember the other two). The technical interview is more of a chat about the work you have completed and your final year project. As long as you know about the work you have done this part is fine. If you don't know about something, just say, they aren't expecting you to know everything and if you try to waffle something and get it wrong it does not come across well). They are looking more about your approach and studying of the relevant topics (doesn't need to be aeronautical engineering). The remaining four interviews are about any experiences in and out of work that you have gained professional/ personal skills, rather than technical skills, in your life. You'll find the answers to these questions are the same each time, just tailor your response to the interview you are on. If you have taken part in a group project you can focus on that, as that will pretty much give you all the answers you need (dealing with conflict, managing time, how you solves a problem you had etc etc).

Geophysicist, Multi-component at Schlumberger

Application Advice:

Schlumberger is an energy services company, however the role I'm in is based around IT as this group within the company focus primarily on software and technical services.

Applying for a technology role, first and foremost, you must be confident in yourself and your technical ability.

You also have to thoroughly enjoy technology, be the type of person who is up to date by the hour on latest events in the IT world. Know what's coming and when and be on the ball with it.

Be enthusiastic, again this comes from enjoying technology itself, you will automatically show enthusiasm if you have an interest.

Keep your CV to 2 pages, start with a personal statement.

Interview Advice:

Typically you will be interviewed by people who have a technical ability relative to the work you will be doing. In addition, you will also be interviewed by some form of manager.

You would be assessed on:
Technical Ability & Knowledge - Be gauged on what you know and what you don't.

Willingness to adapt, change and learn - What you don't know, can be taught with some training, Schlumberger focuses heavily on development so don't worry if you don't know something, you can learn it if it's needed.

Confidence and Enthusiasm - Goes without saying, this is prevalent in most roles however historically I've seen IT bods show little enthusiasm in their field, you have to show very keen interest in IT.

Understand the Company - Before being interviewed, understand the roots of the company. You're applying for an IT job in a company which has a wide variety of roles, try to interpret what kind of work you will be doing and how the company views IT, is it an enabler? a revenue generator? a niche? a 'must have'?

Finally, three rules:

1. Dress Smart - Suit, shirt, tie optional.
2. Ask lots of questions - What is involved? How is your infrastructure setup? Will I be doing end-user support? Do you invest heavily in technology?
3. Always ask how the interview went at the end - Whether they are ready to make an offer or not, you will definitely get honest feedback when you ask this question, if you leave it to later, they may not be willing to give you that feedback.

Focus for this specific job is on academic credentials, so lay these out clearly. Provide clear justification for applying for this job in your cover letter. Keep it concise and interesting (though not overly funky!). Formating should be clear to read and easy to follow, but other than that, probably does not make or break your application. Mention where you heard about the job in your cover letter.

Interview Advice:

The interview comprised an academic presentation given to a technical audience, followed by technical questions, and several individual interviews with more technical questions (details were provided in invitation to interview). Be prepared to explain your academic work in detail, to justify any technical choices made, and to clarify. The interviews are very straightforward, with no element if trying to trip you up or catch you unawares - everything serves the purpose of establishing whether you are the right person for the job.

As in life, be nice to people you meet.

Interview Advice:

Just be yourself; everyone is friendly at Change Agents UK and wants the best out of you, so try to relax! Since a key part of being an Energy Advisor is getting the resident on-side so that you can encourage them to make changes in their lifestyle and habits, you need to be able to get the message across in a friendly and easily-understandable manner; therefore being a 'people person' and a good communicator is often more important than the technical energy knowledge - so let your personality shine through in the interview!

Also brush up on domestic energy efficiency advice, especially regarding key energy-saving tips around the home and heating system and what national grants/funding is available, e.g. for insulation and new boilers (e.g. ECO/Green Deal).

Application Advice:

Don't have any prejudices about what it is to work at a US law firm. Weil's London office is completely independent and staffed 99% by English qualified lawyers. We do English law work with an international scope - not just US work for our New York office. The environment here is welcoming, understanding and open - trainees are given the freedom to develop but are always supported.

Interview Advice:

First of all, be yourself. Don't second guess what you think the interviewer wants to hear. There is space to have your own personality at Weil, so don't be afraid to let that come across. Expect to be asked about your motivations for wanting to practice law and expect competence based questions - you should have a decent working knowledge of how law fits within the machine. Private equity is a key focus of the London office so you should have an understanding of the cycle from first fundraisings by managers, through investments and then exits.

Application Advice:

Of course do your research, but be genuine. Volkswagen literally stands for People's Car and as cheesy as it may seem, the people are far more important than the stats and figures you can throw out in a covering letter.

I'd also recommend that make sure you have some type of industry experience before you apply. It doesn't have to be automotive, but experience of real working life will change you so much and with an intensley competitive application process, this could be the helping hand you need to get you through.

Interview Advice:

Definitley just be yourself - I see a lot of people desperate to work for Volkswagen because of the name. But the culture and the people has to be right for you and the only way to get that feeling is to be yourself.

There's the usual questions you can expect in competency based interview and there's no quirky 'google' style questions to throw you off. So prepare, and use a variety of example - don't just squeeze out everything from one summer job!

Show that you did something well rather than just showing that you've done something: everyone knows that treasurers manage accounts and that captains lead teams. How much did your club or society fundraise when you were treasurer? How did your team improve under your captaincy?

Interview Advice:

Do not worry if you do not know the precise 'right' answer to a question, there might not be one. Take a moment to think of an answer and share your reasoning with your interviewers.

In terms of questions you may get asked, this ranges from the classical competency based questions (3 qualities/weaknesses), to more technical questions - what is initial margin / variation margin, what is novation - generally questions related to the activity of a clearing house.

Application Advice:

Be sure that the type of work that Weil (in London) focuses on really does interest you. The work is at the top of the field, but it is very specific and will not be for everyone.

Be yourself - and perhaps a little bit bold.

Tailor your application - which means that anyone applying should really research Weil, its London office and think about why we appeal to them, specifically.

Interview Advice:

Think rationally about every question asked, even if it means pausing for a couple of moments to compose yourself, and deliver practical, common-sense answers.
Anybody trying to blag their way though really will get found out.

Prior to interview, really consider why Weil (specifically) is a particularly good fit for you (specifically).

Be yourself - don't shy away from showing a bit of personality - or wit if appropriate.

On your application form, do not make any typos and remember that the interviewers can ask you about anything that you have put down.

Interview Advice:

There is a three stage interview process - there is a written exercise (e.g. proof reading a draft clause), then an interview about an article that they give you (often the FT online), and finally an interview based on your application form.

Application Advice:

Don't try and second guess what they are looking for too much in answering the application questions. Try to be honest in your responses - a realistic level of enthusiasm based on your experiences will probably be better received than overblown and extravagant claims.

Interview Advice:

Remember that it's potential they are looking for, so don't try to over-compensate and bluff if you don't know the answer to something. Don't get too wound up about "commercial awareness" either. It may seem trite, but an "awareness" will suffice; don't worry so much about convincing the interviewers that you are some sort of commercial master and be yourself at interview.

Application Advice:

Be honest about your skills and experience, even if you do not have a huge amount of previous experience demonstrating an interest in the discipline and willingness to learn new skills and apply existing ones is a positive.

Interview Advice:

Be confident to talk about your academic route to planning, the focus of your interest in the discipline and how this is complemented and supported by your skills and experience.

Ensure you communicate in a clear and logical way throughout the interview and provide examples of the skills you identify i.e. using experience from university courses and work experience.

Engage with interviewers in a confident, friendly and informed manner - they will be looking for you to demonstrate good communication and personability as well as academic suitability.

Prepare at least one question to ask your interviewers, as they are likely to as if you have any questions at the end and it looks much better if you have one i.e. in relation to the support you receive through the APC process, the level of interdisciplinary working etc.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you prepare well, and read the FT during the weeks leading up to your interview. Try and think of a couple of reasons why you want to work at Freshfields, rather than any other city firm.

Interview Advice:

Look at lawcareers.net for an overview of the interview process, and forums can be useful for reading about other people's experiences. Don't expect yours to be exactly the same though - the firm gives you an idea of the structure, and it's best to focus on that when preparing.

Do your research about the firm - be specific about why you would like to apply to Freshfields, as opposed to an international law firm generally.

Interview Advice:

Be honest and don't over think it. Your interviewers aren't trying to catch you out.

Trainee Solicitor, Corporate at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

There are some basics that you'll always need to cover: show, through your writing, that you are intelligent, hard-working, genuinely interested in law (and in particular corporate law), have common sense and are interesting but not too crazy.

The "genuinely interested" bit is obviously very important. It's important to think about this and write it down in a clear and persuasive manner, but if you get really stuck on this or find yourself having to stretch the truth, you should maybe reconsider why you are applying in the first place.

"Interesting but not too crazy" - you are going to spend a lot of time working with these people, and they know that. They want to know that you will be able to get along with people of different personality types and make some friends. The things you write here may also be useful conversation starters for the interview.

Interview Advice:

Remember the things you wrote on your CV/personal statements! Be prepared to discuss them. Be professional, polite and confident. If you are passionate about a particular area of law (or anything really) hopefully this is evidence in your written application and you can let it come out naturally at the interview.

Odds are they're not going to ask you about clause X of a certain legislation or what Justice Y said in some case 30 years ago (unless you really invite it) - you will just need to show a genuine interest in corporate law, some common sense and confirm all the positive assumptions they hopefully made after reading your application regarding your intelligence, work ethic, and social normality.

Application Advice:

Research the firm and the work ethos - know what you're signing up for!

Interview Advice:

Really be yourself. You don't want to put on a front that you'll then have to keep up for (at least) 2 years. You want your employer to want you - not a facade of you which has been crafted for interviews.

Be personable and freindly. Everyone who applies has strong academics and the partners are often just looking for enthusiasm and someone they can have a laugh with when working late into the night.

Interview Advice:

- written test- mine was to proof read and make amendments.

Application Advice:

'Be yourself' is a cliche, but it is true: they will weed you out if you're false or disingenuous, so try to relax and have confidence in your qualities and attributes.

Interview Advice:

Do your research. Magic Circle law firms can, on the face of it, be indistinguishable to outsiders. Try to understand what sets Freshfields apart, and try speaking to graduates of your college/university who now work at Freshfields. There's nothing better than getting an employee's or partner's personal perspective.

Application Advice:

Make sure your application is error free - read it again and again and ask a third party (an impartial friend/relative) to also read it for spelling/grammar/sense. Simple things are important like making sure you address the cover letter to the correct recipient.
You should try to demonstrate an awareness of the firm's business and how you will fit within the firm.

Interview Advice:

In my opinion, the key is to think logically and express yourself clearly and concisely. You will have two interviews. One is an interview about yourself - so on your CV basically. The other is an interview on an article, which you will have been shown about 20 minutes before the interview. Neither interview is intended to trip you up, the interviewers are more interested in having a conversation with you and talking through your opinions.

Be very clear on why want to be at the firm but also why you don't want the alternatives:
- law and not alternatives (e.g. accountancy, banking)
- solicitor and not barrister
- London and not regional
- City law and not other forms of law
- Magic Circle and not US firms etc
- Freshfields and not e.g. Linklaters

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. Relax and enjoy it. I interviewed at around 6 other City law firms and I just seemed to 'click' with my interveiwers at Freshfields. A wise friend of mine, who is a few years ahead of me in his legal career, once said, "the right firm will find you". To an extent this is true. Often you need to apply to alot of places before you find the right fit - but its worth it when you do.

Think carefully about why you want to be a lawyer at an international law firm and give the real reasons you want to work there. If you can't think of any real reasons, or your real reason is "I couldn't think of what else to do" then you should probably think twice about applying!

Be prepared to demonstrate that you like working hard. Know why you want to be a City lawyer. Show that you're not just academic (which is, of course, a prerequisite) but that you're a fun person to be around day or night. The more well-rounded you are, the more likely it is that you will fit in well at Freshfields!

Interview Advice:

They will ask you why you chose your A-levels, how you ended up at your university, why law (or not), what extracurricular activities you enjoy, how you will cope not having time to do them anymore, how you will adapt to going from a 35 hr week to a 90hr week, what your friends would say about you if you weren't in the room etc. But the whole general interview really is a friendly chat, so be prepared - know your application form inside and out.

Get to know the brands, get to know the history, get to know the marketing and advertising. Be passionate. Keep your eyes open - these brands are a part of our everyday culture, so the best research you can do is on every TV screen, computer supermarket, bar and restaurant where you live.

Interview Advice:

Interview follows quite standard capability-led direction, so make your question count. It's a great chance to show what matters to you, and what interests you about the company.

Application Advice:

Be yourself and let your talents shine through. It's not so much about what you have done, but the skills you have and your willingness to learn and apply your skills to the job.

Interview Advice:

During my assessment centre, I was asked to prepare a case study and give a short presentation with recommendations for a fictitious enterprise. I was also given a short situation to comment on and give further recommendations for, as well as some standard capability-based interview questions. These tend to be very similar across the board, so have some concrete examples ready, and make sure they are real and relate to the question at hand. Finally, I was asked to participate in a group exercise during which we were assessed on team working skills.

Application Advice:

For anyone applying I would tell them that standards are high to gain a role at the company and therefore thorough preparation is required prior to the interiew not only to gain an understanding of what is required to work at GVA but also the greater surveying role.

Interview Advice:

For anyone undertaking an interview my best piece of advice would to be enthusiastic and show a real passion for the role you are applying for. I found this to be key not only in the interviews I had with other related property companies but with GVA specifically. You need to demonstrate not only what you believe GVA can bring to your professional development but also what you can bring to GVA.
