Sky

Marketing Graduate, Entertainment Brand at Sky

Application Advice: Be prepared to demonstrate that you are very passionate about the industry that Sky operates within - especially TV as that is at the heart of the business. Whether that be Sports, Movies or Entertainment content, Sky wants to create the very best shows for its customers, so do plenty of research and show you are excited about the company.

Interview Advice: As with many companies, Sky interviewers want to see how you will react to certain scenarios that can occur in everyday life within the workplace. Examples of this might be 'how you work in a team', or 'when you have led the way on a project', for instance. At an assessment centre, you will more than likely also face a group exercise, where you'll be presented with a scenario to test how you work within a team, but also how you can think on your feet. The best tip is just to be yourself! Don't force yourself to try too hard. Otherwise, you could come across as too pushy, but at the same time make sure your voice is heard.

Application Advice: Do background research on company, different sectors & brands that they offer. Partake in some extra-curricular which will give you something extra to talk about in the interview. The sector which I work in sells business-2-business. It is important to know this and have an understanding of how this works, and how marketing in this way differs. Working in the pharmaceutical sector requires a small amount of knowledge on the NHS and how pharmaceutical marketing differs.

RB

Territory Manager, Commercial graduate trainee at RB

On another note, unlike other FMCG giants RB loves an entrepreneurial spirit - instead of it being a worrying sign that you might leave the company, RB sees it as essential to innovation.

Vodafone

Finally, look into the future at the areas Vodafone is moving into and the areas that Vodafone could potentially move into, be sure you come with lots of opinions on these areas too!

Interview Advice: The application process is a long one but I remember it very well because it was quite different to a lot of other graduate applications; the video interview for example has lots of "curve-ball" questions like "what items would you take with you if you were on an island all by yourself?" You could answer with anything; a lighter for heat, or a jet plane to fly off of the island with; they're just seeing what type of person you are and how you think so enjoy the process!

I really wanted this job when I learnt there was the possibility of a London Marathon place. Try and show as much knowledge and as many skills you have in the short time you have.

Nestle

Assistant Brand Manager, at Nestle

Application Advice: Be yourself and be honest. Not all companies suit all people and Nestlé has a very clear culture and way of working. This won't suit everybody - so make sure you've done your homework on the company and that you answer all applications open and honestly. Make sure this is the right company for you.

Interview Advice: Nestlé operate within a different format to many other leading FMCG companies. By working on a 'strengths' based assessment format, the interview can be very different to those which have been practiced/prepared for previously. Focus on what skills you have and what strengths you can own and think about how that would be a valuable addition to what is already a very strong company. This will help you stand out from the crowd.

Nestle

Assistant Brand Manager, Marketing at Nestle

Application Advice: Speak to others currently in the role. Do your research. Be sure that it is what you want to do before applying and that the role interests you. Get your application in sooner rather than later as once the places fill up then that is it and you will have to wait for another year. Get friends to read over your application and make it the best you can. Don't copy and paste answers from other applications as it is far too obvious and you will not be considered.

Interview Advice: Be honest with yourself. Look at what type of candidate and person they look for and if you don't feel you are that person then don't bother applying as you won't enjoy or fit in with the role/culture. Be prepared, fully understand what the company do and what they are aiming to do. Get a grasp of the brands they work with and the industry they are in. Practice your numeracy and verbal skills over and over and over. So many people fail at this stage across all companies due to being unprepared. I can't exagerate this enough. Make sure when answering any questions at interviews, or how you come across at assessment centres, that you fit it in with the core competencies. Be yourself.

Assistant Product Manager, Matrix at L’Oreal

Application Advice: Be yourself - personality is so important here, there is definitely a L'Oreal "mentality".

Interview Advice: L'Oreal has a lot more brands under its umbrella than people realise; make sure you've researched as much about them all as possible as we are continually assessed against how "sensitive to the industry" we are. It's also not enough to just turn up and reel off your CV: your interviewer will want to know not only what you learnt from each job/extracurricular activity that you've had, but how that experience will be applicable to working at L'Oreal. Finally, it's not all about your grades: in my interview, they weren't interested in my degree but wanted to talk more about the fact that I'd presented my own radio show at university.

Interview Advice: Be ready to answer questions on how you interact with technology and also how other brands use technology to their advantage. Have examples ready to show how you've used technology either in an academic or professional capacity - these don't need to be ground-breaking, my examples were extremely basic. Other grads will come down for Q&A - be sure to spend time with them. They're your best source of insight into life at O2.

DAS

Brand Strategy, at DAS

Application Advice: Be yourself and show a passion for brands and communications. It sounds cliché to be yourself however the people that will read your application and interview you are in a people based industry so being genuine is very important (and will be found out if you don't do it!). It's also key that you can talk passionately about whatever you put in your application, e.g the brand and comms examples. Your role at DAS will be to gain the trust of clients in order for them to see the value of your product/ services. The passion therefore for what you do has to be clear and genuine.

Interview Advice: It's important to read up on the company (DAS, Omnicom etc) but more importantly to take opportunities on the interview day to speak with industry/agency people. So often I have been at interview days and run presentations where candidates just talk by themselves and I am left in the corner. it would be the perfect opportunity to speak with me, ask me questions as I am then feeding back to the interview selection team!
