Sky

Graduate, at Sky

Application Advice: There is no textbook definition of this role, it is more exciting and far more varied than the job description would lead you to believe. There is life outside London - this opportunity will prepare you to work outside the London bubble, across the UK and around the world.

Interview Advice: Prepare solid, recent examples of competencies. Research the company, current projects and strategic goals, along with new offerings for products and services on the horizon. Vision and values are essential to Sky; make an effort to research "Believe in Better" or else you have no chance.

Brightsource

Project Manager, Marketing Operations at Brightsource

Application Advice: Be interesting, and be bold - Brightsource isn't looking for your 'cookie cutter' graduate. Brightsource wants ambitious people with big ideas, who can think for themselves, who aren't afraid to speak out when they disagree with something, and who are always looking for new opportunities. They also like people who aren't afraid of hard work - so if you can show that you're willing to get stuck in with even the most menial of tasks, that will go down really well.

Interview Advice: You probably won't be asked the usual stuff (why did you apply for this role, what have you done in your previous job, etc etc) - you'll be asked more interesting "personality" type questions, because they're much more interested in what kind of person you are than what you have on your CV. That makes it pretty hard to prepare for the interview, but it also can make the interview a more enjoyable experience! Just relax, be honest, be yourself.

Its the same as having to show your working out for a maths problem at school - most points are awarded for the workings out! Be mature and respectful and be prepared to ask questions without being silly.

Interview Advice: Know what you think will be the next thing in advertising/media and have a genuine interest in the field. If you don't, you may become stuck on finding answers to questions. Note there is nothing you can specifically prepare in terms of content but it is worth getting friends, family or anyone in your extended network to help you practice interviews (the more you do the slicker you become).
