Technology & Innovation Graduate, Technology & Innovation at Liberty Global

Application Advice: Use your wording carefully - show in your examples how you took a leadership role in previous experiences. Keywords: lead, inspired, motivated, encouraged, initiative etc.

Interview Advice: Be open about your successes and failures. If you come in all guns blazing claiming how amazing you are then you won't get the job. Be humble about your previous experiences but use them to highlight what you learnt and how you'd approach that failure differently in the future. ASK QUESTIONS to the interviewer, they want to know you're interested. Try asking them what the main challenges are in the telco industry or in their departments.

Virgin Media

T&I Graduate, Technology & Innovation at Virgin Media

Application Advice: Think carefully about what the question is asking and how you can relate this to the Virgin Media values. How can you show that you are ready to embrace the VM culture? Relate this to experiences and skills that you gathered throughout school/university.

Interview Advice: The Virgin Media application process involves a video interview, telephone interview and assessment centre. All of these can be a much more enjoyable experience by simply doing some research around the company and what it is looking for in its graduates! Prepare for the more traditional questions and if there's a curveball - remember the VM values you are trying to portray. All the interviewers who I came across were very friendly and made me feel relaxed.

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.

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.

IT Infrastructure Apprenteship, Datacentre & Cloud Operations at RWE Supply & Trading

Application Advice: The advice I would give for the application would be, to be honest and be yourself. Also showing your interests in the role in your application shows a great deal even if you don't have experience within the role.

Interview Advice: For the interview, I would be honest and communicate well within the group that will be at the interview. Also show your interests and stick to positive things when in the interview. Being formal is also great as this is a very formal environment especially when communicating but this comes with time and experience. Don't be shy either as the more shy you are the less likely you are to feel confident and with confidence comes success!
