What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Read up on the company, what we do and our corporate values. Ensure you convey your passion, what you can bring to BT and be really clear on why you want to join us. Make sure you fully explain why you are applying for the specific role you've applied for. Think about where you see yourself in 2, 5, 10+ years.
In short, show in clear terms that you really WANT the job! Sell yourself. All of this will set you up nicely for your interviews and assessment centres.
Do you have any interview tips?
At your assessment centre you are ALWAYS being watched, assessed and judged although you may not realise it. Your graduate buddy on the day may also have been asked to monitor you and provide feedback to the assessors later.
Ensure you behave assertively with confidence and speak up during group exercises. Sitting there doing or saying nothing will count against you more than talking nonsense non-stop would.
Don't try and blag technical points during your line manager interview. They'll spot this a mile off, so it's better to be honest and upfront if you genuinely don't know or can't answer.
Don't be afraid to ask the interviewer to clarify a question they've asked if you don't quite understand. Interviews are a two-way street and it's a chance for you to ask questions of your own and to learn more about us.
Nobody is there to deliberately trip you up. Assessment centres can actually be good fun, just relax and enjoy it!
