What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Know the company inside out - what are the full range of services we offer, who are our competitors, what were our financials last year (how is the company performing as a whole), what do you think this role involves day to day
Focus on your achievements and give concrete examples - not just fluffy "we did this and then we achieved this" - great to show you worked as part of a team, but how did YOU actually add value to the team, what did YOU actually do
Personality as as important as qualifications - people being our main asset and it being a genuinely people focused culture, it's as important that you're a good fit personality wise and vice versa as all the skills you might bring. Know our values well (modesty, honesty, fun etc.) as that's exactly the kind of person Capgemini are looking for
Have an idea of your longer term career aspirations
Ideally talk to someone who has done the role in the company (try use your network/get in touch with someone on LinkedIn) - get the most accurate view of what it really is like
Do you have any interview tips?
Much of the same as above
In the group exercise, be careful to achieve a balance between speaking up and voicing your opinion and listening and taking on board others' opinion and not taking over - this is key
Have questions for the interviewer too - try to think up challenging ones as well as just asking the generic qs.
Know your presentation well - e.g. if a case study and you mention a technology in your solution, really know why you've chosen cloud for example. Don't just read from a load of slides, how you present is very important
Be confident and if one area doesn't go well, don't fret, you can compensate for it by doing well in the other areas of the assessment centre - it's all taken into account
Practice for the numerical and verbal, no matter how confident you are in your ability, you're in a pressurised environment on the day so every bit of practice helps
Again, make sure your personality comes through - at the end of the day, you're going to need to be someone they'd like to work with!
