Application Advice: Make sure you are joining the right part of the company - some expect to join a particular area and then get pushed down the process of joining another.

Client Security Manager, Security Management at Atos

Come up with scenarios where you have shown this.

Interview Advice: Be friendly, smile and take your time answering questions. Don't be afraid to ask for a couple of seconds to think through your answer, be as clear as you can and don't worry about being nervous the interviewer will understand. Why Atos? What have you chosen [insert scheme]? What experience do you have in [insert area]? Give an example of when you changed a way of working? How is Atos different from it's competitors? Google examples of common competency based questions and try think of examples from your own experience (uni, previous work, extra-curricular etc.) for each one. Take notes into the interview and use them to jog your memory if you forget an example (but don't take pages and pages - just use a sheet or two with bullet points).

NCC Group

Security Consultant, at NCC Group

Application Advice: Be honest. Show your interest and how you've been doing things outside of work/school etc. to study information security or even something related like a programming job. Anything tech related that you have done really helps out. Also if you have any presenting skills, put them in there, as it will be a massive plus if they see that you have people skills as well as technical skills.

Interview Advice: Make sure you know your stuff. Review your networking skills, know what NMAP is, how TCP/IP works, what is the 3 way handshake. These are all things you should have already covered. If not, you'll probably learn them on the grad scheme, but it will make you less competitive overall. Know how to program. If you can program even a little bit in some language it will be a massive help to you within this type of company. Oh, and don't lie. It will be obvious to them if you don't know your stuff when they start asking you to prove your skills. Just admit to them you don't know. You are not expected to know everything starting out.

Penetration Tester, Penetration Testing at BT (British Telecom)

Interview Advice: Relax and do not worry about being completely technical, you need to be able to show you are human and can answer questions and chat with a customer without being a robot.

DSTL

Computer Scientist, Cyber at DSTL

Application Advice: Information about the work can be a bit vague in job adverts as there are so many different types of roles to fill, but the company sorts people into interviews for areas that they think will suit the candidate best. With this in mind it is best to shape your CV and application to the types of work you enjoy and are good at rather than having a generic CV you send to everyone.

Interview Advice: Don't be afraid to say you don't know something about questions asked as there are a wide variety of disciplines that you could end up doing. You won't know exactly what the role is prior to joining. When you get to interview then the topics you have indicated in your CV are most likely to be relevant to the work you would be doing so don't put something on their that you don't know that much about, just because you think it will get you a better shot at the job.

CGI

Information Assurance Consultant, Information Assurance at CGI

Application Advice: explain that you are interested in a particular area such as Security, programming etc but ensure that you are clear about wanting to try other things and that you are flexible with travel arrangements.

Interview Advice: part of the assessment centre involved a group exercise. Ensure that you show the assessors that you are able to both listen and take on board other people's comments but then just as easily provide your opinion as well. Where you disagree with a colleague, ensure that you explain clearly, and kindly why you disagree and offer an alternative solution. There is also an aptitude test which unfortunately cannot really be practiced. There is also a one hour interview. Cgi try to ensure that someone relating to the field in which you are interested in will conduct the interview. In this they asked for all sorts of typical interview style questions such as strengths and weaknesses (my advice would be just be honest about weaknesses... Don't say something like "I'm a perfectionist". I said that I wasn't very confident at presenting in front of crowds but that I'm seeking to improve this). They also asked about examples of difficult colleagues or other sort of scenario example questions.

CGI

Team Leader, Government at CGI

Application Advice: Don't exaggerate your experience, companies do not expect you to already be a successful project manager whilst you were at university. They do expect you to be realistic about your abilities and understand your strengths versus your weaknesses. The best approach you can take to an application is to apply the skills you actually have picked up to the requirements they might want of their new joiner.

Interview Advice: Be yourself, but prepare adequately so that you understand your own CV and experiences and can answer questions about your university/working life without hesitation. Do not use lots of filler words, such as "like" and "erm"; be confident in yourself and your interviewers will be confident in you too.

Graduate, BT Security at BT (British Telecom)

Application Advice: Read up on the company, what we do and our corporate values. Ensure you convey your passion, what you can bring to BT and be really clear on why you want to join us. Make sure you fully explain why you are applying for the specific role you've applied for. Think about where you see yourself in 2, 5, 10+ years. In short, show in clear terms that you really WANT the job! Sell yourself. All of this will set you up nicely for your interviews and assessment centres.

Interview Advice: At your assessment centre you are ALWAYS being watched, assessed and judged although you may not realise it. Your graduate buddy on the day may also have been asked to monitor you and provide feedback to the assessors later. Ensure you behave assertively with confidence and speak up during group exercises. Sitting there doing or saying nothing will count against you more than talking nonsense non-stop would. Don't try and blag technical points during your line manager interview. They'll spot this a mile off, so it's better to be honest and upfront if you genuinely don't know or can't answer. Don't be afraid to ask the interviewer to clarify a question they've asked if you don't quite understand. Interviews are a two-way street and it's a chance for you to ask questions of your own and to learn more about us. Nobody is there to deliberately trip you up.
