Interview Advice: Interview was really warm, could tell they weren't trying to catch you out with their questions and just wanted to see you for who you are. Also gave you an opportunity to bring up anything you wanted to highlight at the end, that you hadn't included in your interview answers

Application Advice: Schneider is all about people taking responsibility for themselves and their work. If you can demonstrate that you can take initiative and run with something off your own back to make it happen, that will really stand out in the crowd!

Interview Advice: Schneider is a very people based company, and at the assessment centres they really want to see what you are like as a person. They are less interested in your academics by the time you get to the assessment centre, and would rather see a willingness to learn and how you collaborate with others. It's all about making sure you fit in with the company culture!

Application Advice:

Make sure your CV has no spelling mistakes! Keep it to 2 pages max and list your key achievements along with some skills you can bring to the table. If you write a cover letter try not to make this too long and include some evidence where you have developed certain skills, worked in a team, presenting etc. Also try and show that you have skills which relate to the company values if possible as it shows you have done some research!

Interview Advice:

Be yourself! Have confidence but still be down to earth. The interviewers really just want to get to know you as a person and see where you would fit in the business. Being a team player is also very important as collaboration is a daily occurrence within the business. Also prepare by doing some research on the company and know the company values as these are the bread and butter of the company!

Application Advice:

In the application is important to show yourself as you are but also to show your soft skills and anything that you have done that is creative and innovative. Schneider is interested in a variety of backgrounds, so if your studies didn't follow the "standard" route, this could turn out to be an advantage for you, therefore I would emphasise that. About the CV, I would say the layout/graphics should stand out from the mass, if possible.

Interview Advice:

In the interview the questions are competency based, so I would suggest to follow the STAR approach in your answers. Schneider is looking for people that share its values, so prepare examples to show how you align to those values. It is also important to carefully check which skills the company is looking for you to have. For example, disruption and innovation are something Schneider is looking for in new employees.

Technical background is key. It is important to know that they don't expect you to know everything but to have a keen technical mind, to be able to work with others and work under tight restrictions.

Interview Advice:

While cliché, it is important to be yourself. Interviewers value honesty more than "inflated personalities" in my experience. Questions I was asked would include times you managed a team, times you worked under adversity and how you dealt with it. Other questions included how to deal with unhelpful team members.
