What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Having related work experience or project experience is a big plus. Even if it was in a different field, many of the skills are transferable, e.g. researching, data analysis and communication. Make sure you highlight this.
Do you have any interview tips?
I had to prepare a presentation on a design question that was provided to me ahead of the interview. I asked my university professor for guidance, which allowed me to deliver a high quality answer. The interviewers were also very impressed when they asked how I had prepared for the question.
The remainder of the interview consisted of a mix of technical questions and typical interview-style questions. The technical questions were phrased in a "How would you..." manner, rather than looking for a specific answer.. I certainly didn't know the answer to every question but the interviewers were interested in my thinking process. This is your opportunity to showcase your analytical mind, if you don't know the answer, start with what you do know and don't be afraid to ask the interviewers questions.
For the typical interview style questions (e.g. team work experience, how would you handle a difficult situation, etc) make sure you provide examples of times when you used these skills.
