Procter & Gamble

Associate HR Manager, GBS HR at Procter & Gamble

Application Advice: In your CV make sure you clearly articulate what YOU personally did to achieve the specific and quantifiable results - don't list tasks, list achievements. Practice, practice, practice for the online tests! They are difficult.

Interview Advice: The interviews are behavioural question based... "tell me about a time when you...". You need to give examples of stories or anecdotes from previous jobs/teams/projects/volunteering that demonstrate the core skills asked for on the careers website. Always answer with CARE - context, action, result, evaluation.

Procter & Gamble

Associate HR Manager, at Procter & Gamble

Application Advice: Leadership skills are a priority - show where YOU personally have led a team, task or project from start to finish and make clear what the results that you achieved were. As opposed to talking about a character trait you think is desirable, instead mention something you have done which inherently reflects this skill - 'demonstrate not state'. What should be clear in your application is your desire to work in and passion for a certain area of the business and why, as opposed to relevant work experience where actual achievements were minimal.

Interview Advice: Questions are all behavioural and generally start with 'Tell me about a time when....' E.g. '....you led a group of people to success'; '...an idea of yours brought about change'; '...you were involved in a conflict at work'; '...you had to change a plan at the last minute'. Interviewers look for examples that demonstrate key capabilities such as leadership, ownership, agility, discipline etc. Prepare scenarios from your work, university, school, extra-curricular activities, holidays etc. that you can use as examples to answer these types of questions.
