What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The technical ability required to do most of the work I could on a regular basis comes naturally to me, and I find it fairly easy (most of the time) to understand what is required. However, if I am ever stuck, I can always rely on colleagues to help me out, and this itself allows me to stay calm most of the time and not worry about why I am stuck and whether I should know all of it. This leads on to my next point about the majority of my colleagues not making me feel silly for not knowing something I probably should know - everyone has their own learning curve, and my team really understands that.
As of now, balancing work with study, and trying to do my best at both can be quite a challenge at times, especially when exams are nearing. I always tell myself that it is impossible to give both my 100% because I am not a robot, and it is okay if I fail the exams, even after doing my best, because it happens to even the best of those in the team. However, it is harder to convince yourself of that when you also want to make a good impression on the exams side of things.

What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Always remember the STAR technique when answering questions about competencies.
Practice lots before doing the psychometric tests - that's the best way to get more comfortable with the type of questions that may come up, and you'll find yourself being able to answer the questions naturally after doing many of these tests.
Do you have any interview tips?
Get comfortable with talking to your laptop, for the digital interview. I know it can be quite weird, but you just have to pretend that you are talking to someone, and answer like you would if there was someone sitting in front of you. I actually didn't think about this earlier, but you can always pretend that you are speaking to a friend that you would find it easy to respond to in an interview style.
Also, irrespective of the interview, just be 100% yourself. If you can do that, you've already won half the battle.
