Virgin Media

Finance Graduate, Finance at Virgin Media

Application Advice: The application was fairly standard, a bit of knowledge of the industry and Virgin Media's growth targets would be beneficial. I would also recommend doing some research on the parent company - Liberty Global.

Interview Advice: I don't remember being asked any particularly strange questions when I was interviewed. Being a second-year graduate now though I have had the opportunity to take part in the interviewing of prospective graduates - I would immediately mark down someone that said they had done something but then couldn't back it up with evidence. The other thing I dislike in interviews is people giving answers they think I would like to hear rather than offering their actual thoughts. It's usually quite easy to tell whether someone believes in what they are saying or not.

Technical Analyst, Support at Fidessa

Application Advice: Support is split up into a variety of sub-departments, all which vary quite a lot in expected technical qualifications. If you're applying for a Graduate role, ensure that you highlight your Dissertation/3rd year project as this will provide a lot of leverage if you chose an interesting subject. This is essentially what got me the interview.

Interview Advice: Do your research prior to the interview. This role tends to attract a lot of 'failed developers', so you need to give an indication that you're not applying because you weren't able to get a Development job.

BT (British Telecom)

Business Graduate, Business and Public sector at BT (British Telecom)

Application Advice: The roles at BT vary tremendously. The company employs over 100,000 people worldwide, this means your experience will vary immensely. Most jobs are determined by their line manager, if you are lucky and get a good line manager, your development will be positive. The converse is also true, a bad manager means a horrible experience. Unfortunately, the latter is a very common occurrence in BT, not only for myself, but other graduates. Low level of responsibility, mundane, tedious work not befitting of a degree holder is commonplace in BT. With restricted opportunities to move in the company if you had wanted to change roles, or move teams is hard to happen.

Interview Advice: Read as much as you can from the website, about your respective field. Try to understand the company culture, and what they do.
