Application Advice:

The application process is pretty simple, take care when doing the tasks in the online assessment and look into the camera when doing the webcam interview.

Interview Advice:

The interview process is pretty relaxed, especially on your face to face interviews. Dress code is smart casual (I wear jeans and a shirt to work), don't turn up in a suit - been hired twice and nobody who overdressed was hired. The interviews are pretty relaxed, make sure to be open and answer questions fully. In group interviews, you need to contribute, take responsibility for a task and try to make sure everyone's opinion is heard. Staying quiet and being overbearing are the worst things you can do.

Application Advice:

The most important thing is to be yourself and don't feel pressured to lie or embellish because you think that's what people want to hear. If you have to lie to get a job then is it really what you want to be doing? You are far more likely to get a job by showing the interviewer the real you and not some grandstanding fictional character.

Interview Advice:

The interview was only part of the assessment, which also included group and individual tasks which are designed to show how well you can work. The tasks vary every year, but will generally be based on applying your analysis and planning skills to a brief either giving an individual presentation or working as a group. As for the interview itself, I found knowledge of the company was very important, as there were several questions about my understanding of the company and the market, as well as questions about me.

Application Advice:

Just give it a go! I had no Marketing experience so thought there was no chance of getting the role but I did and am very happy here.

Interview Advice:

Started with online form (standard long questions), then online tests (not too stretching just Verbal and non-Verbal as far as I remember), then an online interview - the questions pop up on the screen and you have a limited amount of time to answer them, no interaction with an interviewer so you can do this whenever suits you.
Final part is a day long assessment centre full of team and individual challenges as well as interviews.

Application Advice:

Be honest - the company seems to choose applicants largely around culture fit. So don't select a persona to act like, be yourself and if the fit is right you'll progress through the stages.

Interview Advice:

It's very informal in O2, so try and stay relaxed. The interview questions tend to be competency based (give me an example of a time when...) so have these prepped.

Build your competencies around digital skills - give examples of how you are comfortable with, and have an interest in, technology. Prepare yourself for questions around the most inspirational famous person to you, and also how you interact with technology/digital products on a regular basis.

My advice would be to be outspoken, dont be afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. The organisation is very much looking for an individual that they want to work with, as well as somebody who has the skills to actually complete the role. If you lack the ability to fit into a team then it doesnt matter how good your skills are, you wont make it through the process.

Be open and honest about why you want the role, Telefonica puts its people first, its not a typical corporation, we don't come in in suits and have strict times we have to work between. Its relaxed and makes it alot easier to work in for that reason.

Application Advice:

Part of the application process is an online interview. Be prepared for this - 5 questions will appear on the screen and you will answer but it can make you nervous to watch yourself being recorded.

Interview Advice:

Always be honest. They may ask technical questions and if you don't know the answer - tell them! It also looks great if you ask what the answer is or if you answered correctly.

Application Advice:

It's always important to be yourself, it's obvious when you are not. That doesn't mean you can't be an improved version of yourself and really push to demonstrate qualities you have that you may not have had to the opportunity to do before. It's also good to standout, but for the right reasons. We are always looking for bright leaders who can take the company futher within the telecommunications market in years to come.

Interview Advice:

They are more than likely going to be competency questions that ask you identify where you demonstrated specific key skills or characteristics that make you more employable and sought after.

Application Advice:

Be yourself when you apply - do not try to second guess what Telefonica want to hear. The hiring process is done around your personality fit to the company. It'll be obvious if you're not being yourself and as a result your application won't be successful.

Interview Advice:

Be ready to answer questions on how you interact with technology and also how other brands use technology to their advantage. Have examples ready to show how you've used technology either in an academic or professional capacity - these don't need to be ground-breaking, my examples were extremely basic.

Other grads will come down for Q&A - be sure to spend time with them. They're your best source of insight into life at O2. And being able to strike a rapport with them can also do your interview chances no harm - even though this part of the day is not monitored.

Retail Leadership Graduate, at Telefonica
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The application process involves an online application, online competency tests, a recorded video interview, and an assessment centre.
Make sure you have prior experience in teamwork, leadership, analysis.
Experience in a role related to telecoms is useful but not essential.
A degree in a rigorous, analytical subject is desired, but it doesn't have to be a BSc. You're not expected to have lots of technical knowledge unless you're applying to the Networks part of the grad scheme (for which a higher level of technical experience/skills is desired). Service Management expects you to learn quickly and adapt, not necessarily arrive with considerable tech knowledge.

Interview Advice:

The video interview is recorded and one-way. You will not converse with a person, you will answer questions shown on screen and you will have a limited time to prepare answers and record them. Make sure your webcam and backdrop is appropriate and try to stay calm, maintain eye contact with the camera, and avoid speaking too quickly.

The Assessment Centre involves one-on-one interviews, group tasks, and general monitoring throughout the day. You will have a one-on-one interview, a personal business analysis exercise and interview, and monitored group tasks to complete.
Make sure you know your CV back to front and remember examples of times where you have solved problems, shown leadership, had to analyse a problem etc.
There's nothing unorthodox or anything designed to trip you up, they're genuinely interested in finding out whether you're right for Telefonica.
