Manager, Government Affairs, Public Policy and Patient Advocacy at GlaxoSmithKline

Application Advice:

It can be relatively hard to find information about GSK on the internet, certainly when it comes to interview prep. My best piece of advice would be to focus on the company mission and values. Think how well this fits with your personal values and ambitions and how you have been able to demonstrate this.

Interview Advice:

Show your personality, passion and remember to SMILE!!

When you get through to the assessment centre your academic credentials have been validated. Now they are looking at your potential as a future leader, how well you fit with the company values and your of course your interpersonal skills.

Don't panic if you aren't an expert in the area that you are applying for. They know this - just show how you can apply yourself and use logic.

Application Advice:

If you want a place where you can grow and learn and develop, apply. If you want a place where you will be pushed to your breaking point and challenged, then I would suggest applying to a bank as GSK is an amazing place to work, but quite soft and not right for everyone.

Interview Advice:

Remember to include everyone in the team activities - 'what do you think' etc. It is all about striking the right balance between being confident and being cocky.

Application Advice:

Be yourself. They are looking for people who fit into the GSK values, not necessarily the most ambitious or high-achieving, although of course they expect a high level of performance too.

Finance Associate, R&D Finance at GlaxoSmithKline
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Apply if you want a graduate scheme that lives up the name 'Future Leaders' in giving you valuable experience with impactful and interesting projects from early in your career. You get to work across all areas of HR and have a big say in which of these areas you work in, so if you have a passion for a particular area of HR, don't be afraid to say so! As well as conveying your passion for HR, make sure you research GSK as a company and it's values, as if these don't appeal to you, chances are you aren't the right fit for GSK and the business areas you will be supporting and GSK isn't the right fit for you to deliver to your potential - it works both ways!

Interview Advice:

Just be yourself, the genuine interest and passion is the most powerful attribute you have and will mean that if you're selected you will know you are the right 'fit' for GSK as it is senior HR colleagues who carry out the assessment centre, rather than an external third party, so you can be sure you're tested by the best.

Ensure that you have a very good understanding of GSK’s values: Transparency, Respect for People, Integrity and Patient Focus. Ensure that you highlight how you, as an individual, align with these. Also, bring to light how your person experiences have taught you these values.

Interview Advice:

BE YOURSELF! Interviews and assessment centres are not like “The Hunger Games” – you are not fighting against the other applicants. Relax and be yourself, ensuring that you portray the real you and bring to life your values, your brand and your goals and aspirations in life. Always remain humble and grateful for the opportunity that you are given and the time that is being grated to you by your interviewers.

In the Online interviews – make sure that you look at the camera and do not read what you have on a piece of paper (tip: watch the news and look at how they presenters talk to the camera, this will give you an idea of how you should talk to the camera)

Application Advice:

This is a 'Future Leaders' Graduate Programme and this isn't just a title to make the graduate scheme seem more appealing, it is reflected in the fact you are given great exposure to senior colleagues and responsiblity on major projects from very early on, so make sure this is a challenge you are looking for.

If GSK is a company you specifically want to work for, be sure to mention this and explain why as that interest and passion for the company and its Values will help you stand out. Similarly, make sure you do your research on GSK to gain an understanding of the Company and what about GSK appeals to you as this will demonstrate your interest in working for GSK.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, that way you will see if you are the right person for GSK and also if GSK is the right company for you - it is a two way process.

Again, do your research on GSK and what about the company really appeals to you personally and why.

Ensure you have examples of where you have demonstrated key competencies looked for at GSK to demonstrate that you have these attributes, otherwise you are missing a great opportunity to demonstrate your ability.

Sales and Marketing Graduate, at GlaxoSmithKline
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be yourself- there is little point pretending to be something you are not

You will know if you are suited to a company by the look and feel of the application and through talking to the people, even if they are interviewing you it is usually quite easy to tell if you would fit in. Listen to your instincts.

Ask smart questions. If you cant think of any there are loads of articles on LinkedIn and other websites giving examples of smart interview questions. Just make sure its applicable to the role/company/conversation. Don't just ask something random. Choose a more generic question if that makes it easier.

Interview Advice:

See application advice.

In assessment centres try to demonstrate you can listen as well as talk and generate ideas if you are more of a talker but vice versa if you are more of a listener.

Try not to be competitive in the assessment centres. Depending on the firm they will sometimes take the number of individuals who meet their threshold and not just 'the top 2'. Big companies don't like to let key talent go. Try to use your fellow candidates to your advantage and to demonstrate your strengths.

Application Advice:

Be yourself - very important to not put on an act as they can see straight through you. It's impossible to know exactly what they are looking for. If you be yourself and you get through then its almost certain you will be a right fit for the company/team. if not, it's likely that the role wouldn't have suited you.
Don't be too overpowering in group situations, don't take leadership and prevent the others joining in, they want to see that you can be a team player.

Interview Advice:

Competency based interview questions, i.e. tell me about a time when you have shown leadership in a group?

Application Advice:

Be yourself, you don't require any prior knowledge about ERP therefore it is best to just say what you know.
Do your research about the company and the pharmaceutical industry. GSK has strong values so it is important to demonstrate that you are aware of them and are willing to uphold them.

Interview Advice:

Research about the ERP make sure you have a high level understanding of what it does and the role in plays within a business. Think about your skills and how you can add to implementing and maintaining a system.

Application Advice:

Really research the company and the graduate programme before you apply. The more GSK-specific knowledge you can demonstrate in your application will really help you. Equally, it's worth doing this to make sure that GSK and HR are absolutely right for you.
Remember to use the STAR techinque in your application questions and always talk about what YOU achieved, not everyone else!
Also remember that the thought and design process behind your achievements is just as important to talk about as the finished product. Interviewers/assessors want to know that you recognise the challenges that come with creating an end product so talk about the highs and lows - this shows them that you can be very pragmatic and take a look at what to improve in the future.

Interview Advice:

On the assessment day you will take part in a variety of activites. Some of which are:
- Compentency interview;
- Group exercise;
- Role play;
- Presentation.
It sounds cliche - but BE YOURSELF! There is no point pretending to be someone else because you'll have to keep that alter ego up! :)
Prepare to talk about yourself in a lot of detail, and get comfortable with blowing your own trumpet in an interview (not in an arrogant way of course!).
Always remember that the assessors will be looking for someone that fits GSK's culture, whilst also demonstrating the key competencies for the role, so don't try and be 'dog-eat-dog'. It doesn't fit with how GSK are as a company.
This one sounds very obvious but, when you are given a task, remember to read the instructions really carefully. You don't want to be answering the wrong question!
Good luck - just give it your best shot :)
