Application Advice:

Gain as much insight about the role by utilising the company website, social media outlets and speaking to current graduates if possible. Research office locations to make sure it is a suitable fit for yourself and ensure you are prepared to move between placements if it is a rotational scheme. Tailor any competency questions to the role and company and ensure your CV is up to date and relevant to the position.

Interview Advice:

Read relevant news areas that interest yourself, even if it is only one article that you understand well so that you have something interesting and current to discuss if you get to interview stage. This will help you be memorable and stand out to the interviewer. Have a few questions prepared to ask the interviewer, it shows willing and initiative. These can be as simple as, 'what challenges do you think the company will face in the near future?'

Application Advice:

A lot of companies today use gamification to ease the recruitment of interns and graduates. For example, I first got involved with Npower through their former Future Leaders Competition. This allowed both sides time to assess the other before committing to anything. I would highly recommend applying for these opportunities as it gives them time to get to know the real you, and you time to decide whether this is a company you really want to work for.

Consumer Media PR Graduate, PR at Npower

Application Advice:

Show that you are willing to apply yourself and have a 'willing-to-learn' attitude. I think everyone would say their own industry is pretty complicated, and I feel that is particularly true of the energy sector. The amount of things I know now which I couldn't have thought of before are crazy - so it is important to come in appreciating that there is a lot to learn! It's also a good idea to have an rough understanding of the Domestic energy market (the big 6, Small and medium sized competitors e.g OVO and the Smart meter rollout should be enough!)

Interview Advice:

Predominantly competency based questions - competency areas can be found on the company graduate website.

Application Advice:

Don't worry about being an expert on the energy industry. It is incredibly complicated and trying to learn all its minutiae before an interview or assessment day will just leave you feeling under pressure. There is an understanding that new recruits will know nothing about the industry; focus on convincing the company that you can learn new information quickly, have the talent and motivation to succeed, and that you are personable enough to work within a company that relies a lot on interpersonal relationships and stakeholder management.

Dont necessarily think you need to have bundles of knowledge about the energy industry- as a service graduate I didn't- I was attracted to the role because of the diversity and challenge that it offered not because of the energy industry however you learn so much and I guarantee that like me you will become passionate about the energy industry within a few days of working here!

Interview Advice:

The interview is tough- but we want the best graduates. Keep calm during your presentation and be yourself. The assessors are not there to trip you up so answer their questions honestly and demonstrate your enthusiasm.

Application Advice:

Go in with an openmind. There are many opportunties, areas and teams you may never knew existed before joining which may excite you. The energy industry has many barriers and a different way of functioning. In some ways we are a lot slower in our developement and marketing and in other ways we are pushing forward and innovative - we may not be what you expect. I would suggest doing your research on the company, trying to find out more about the roles in npower before choosing the scheme you think is right for you.

Interview Advice:

Show an interest in the industry and competiton, brush up on media knowledge. Practice your presentation skills.

Application Advice:

The cliche old of 'be yourself'. It seems to me candidates who stand out are those who are friendly / personable but have a underlying drive which shines through and this is especially noticable at the assessment centre.

Know your numerical tests too! Practice makes perfect.

Interview Advice:

Drawback from your life experiences to give relevant examples to the questions asked. Nothing is better than fluently drawing from experience, it allows you to respond confidently to any questions asked during the interview stages and will help you stand out.

Also as mentioned before, be genuine and personable it helps break the ice during the interview process.
