Application Advice: - Do your research on the company and the wider sector - Practise some online assessment tests beforehand - Apply as soon as the scheme is open as it may close early for applications once a certain amount has been filled

Interview Advice: - Strengths-based assessment (different from more traditional interview methods) so bear in mind previous work experience isn't everything - attend with full awareness of your capabilities! - Don't try and be someone you're not. This will backfire! - Assessment centre consisted of a group interview, individual interview, role play and a presentation - Prepare for the presentation - it will pay off! There was the opportunity to bring in your own materials (non-electronic) so make the most of this (think posts, etc!)

Projects and Sales Intern, Project Management at Siemens

Application Advice: Structure your application so it makes for interesting reading, do not try and tailor it to a single person as many applications are filtered through several, and what one may love, may put off another. Show your ability to be part of a team, and by that, I mean to be a good team member, not just a leader, as sometimes you'll learn more if you listen and hear what someone else is saying than you would talking at them.

Interview Advice: Stay as calm as possible, Siemens look for your qualities and won't try to catch you out, they just want to hear about the potential you have and whether you'll fit into the business. Be well dressed, you can always be over-dressed, but don't ever be under-dressed. Re-read your CV and covering letters so nothing that they read on your CV to you, can surprise you.

Severn Trent

Graduate Project Manager, Capital Delivery & Commercial – Water – Non Infra at Severn Trent

Application Advice: Be yourself, take your time and make sure you get plenty of practice beforehand (especially for the numeric/verbal reasoning tests and situational assessments, as for these, practice really does make perfect).

Interview Advice: There was a video interview which was relatively standard for graduate schemes and then after this at the assessment centre there was a further face to face interview. For this, we had to prepare a presentation in advance. The interviewer was not interested in what was on the slides and just wanted to hear what I had to say - which was refreshing. It was very relaxed and wasn't stressful in comparison to other assessment centres I had attended. The presentation was around the water industry and tested our ability to research in advance (the company and the industry) and then some retrospection on what my strengths and weaknesses were and how I can use this knowledge to develop in the role.

Process Engineering, Production-Treatment Process Engineering at Severn Trent

Application Advice: An understanding of the issues facing the water industry and the exciting challenges we face is always great to mention as it shows commitment. I would also say as much as possible, get across your enthusiasm for the things you do. We all take pride in our work, so are always keen to hear about your passions as well. Finally, be honest. Integrity is vital to this industry and you are definitely not expected to know everything before you join.

Interview Advice: It sounds clichéd, but as far as possible, be yourself. There's a wide range of personality types in my team but one common feature is honesty. Interviewers always want you to portray who you are and to succeed. Most of any job is working with other people, treat the interviewer as somebody you want to work with. My questions were strength based so take time to think about what you value and how you approach certain tasks. Examples are great in this scenario. Check the company's values and see where you align with them without being too rehearsed.

Centrica

Application Advice: When doing the personality testing just be consistent in your answers. This arises from answering truthfully. People don't really get screened out at the personality testing - this is just to aid the interviewers later when they interview you.

Interview Advice: Assessment days are about finding out how you'll be to work with. Don't be over-bearing/over confident. The assessors are very perceptive so be friendly and be yourself. You get asked some simple logic questions like how many letters do BG send home in the year. There's obviously not an exact number but show your logic in terms of how you'd calculate it.

Centrica

Customer Insight Graduate, Data, Insight & Customer Value Management at Centrica

Application Advice: Spend time really working out why you want to apply to Centrica/the specific stream as this will help you form your application questions. Practice some psychometric tests before doing your Centrica application as you will be asked to do these, so it's worth making sure you are comfortable with them first. Do your research on Centrica and any latest news stories effecting the industry for your telephone interview.

Interview Advice: Research into the values of Centrica and think of key examples where you have demonstrated such a value, have these examples ready to hand as you are very likely to be asked such questions. There may be a "curve-ball" analytics type question, where the interviewer isn't interested in your answer, but rather your thought process. Think up a couple of questions to ask the interviewer at the end, there is nothing worse than them saying "Do you have any questions?" and you not having any curiosity!
