Interview Advice: Understand your USP. This may be your technical knowledge; your degree may match the role description. It may be your character and your ability to communicate and work as a team.

General Management Graduate, at Bouygues Energies & Services

Application Advice: The scheme in General Management doesn't have a strict entry path, so don't think that because you don't have a degree in Business, Management or anything Facilities related you aren't going to be qualified for this job. My degree is in chemistry and was heavily focused on research. But it's the transferable skills that matter in this application - a desire to affect change, a flexible work ethic, a willingness to travel around for your job, a restlessness to embrace new challenges and opportunities. Most of all, the initiative to go and find all of that yourself - this is a company that thrives on its graduates getting to know people more than getting to know the industry.

Interview Advice: This company needs graduates that can be eloquent without being too technical and graduates that can take on board unfamiliar information quickly. Speak up in your interview, be proud of your achievements at university, work experience or previous jobs. But don't be arrogant - this isn't a sales role where you live or die by the words you speak.

Network Rail

General Management Graduate, at Network Rail

Application Advice: Think about what they are asking you. Make sure you fully understand the question and think about what they want to hear from you from that question. Adding extra information may seem like you are helping padding out your answers, but make sure that extra information is relevant and doesn't take away from what they want. For written answers, I'd recommend highlighting the key words in the question before hand to help this.

Interview Advice: If you're not sure what they mean when they ask something - ask! You'll not only stop yourself from blagging an answer which could be completely off the point, but it'll also demonstrate your willingness to ask questions which is more essential in real life than you might think. Relax. I know it's easier said than done, but you'll be able to think clearer and you'll come across more like your true self if you're nervous or stiff. They are people, so ask how they are, give them a smile and they will respond in the same way. They don't want you to panic either.

Transport for London

Commercial Graduate, Commercial Procurement at Transport for London

Application Advice: It's more about the attitude than the knowledge. I have seen people in assessment days with a degree in transportation procurement and experience working in this sector, but they did not get onto the scheme since they did not have the necessary characteristics, attitude or motivation. Aside from the research you should have done about the role you're applying for. You need to relax, be friendly, chatty, ask some good questions, be supportive of other applicants (that does sound counter intuitive but it shows teamwork). Don't think you can coast through on just having the knowledge or experience!

Interview Advice: Why do you want to work for TfL? What do you know about the placement you've applied for? Name a time you've been in a team and had to take leadership? Name a time when you've made a mistake and its implications and how you corrected it?

Asda

Asda Logistics Graduate, Asda Logistics Graduate Scheme at Asda

Application Advice: I suppose that the best advice would be not to worry about it, the graduate recruitment team are really good and not scary. They won't be trying to trip you up and are super helpful. They also really know their stuff as they work with developing graduates as well as recruiting them, so don't be scared to contact them with questions (I wish I did that more when I applied). I actually applied for a different graduate scheme to the one I'm on, but the interviewers know what they're looking for and so talked to me about how they thought I was more suited to a different scheme. They even arranged for me to spend a day with a graduate and that kind of support in graduate recruitment is above and beyond. That being said, the application process is very competitive and will require some time and investment, I would really recommend coming up to speed with market news and trends (try the magazine called 'The Grocer') and how they affect the retail business and its future. Also think laterally about how activities outside of work demonstrate the leadership behaviours which Asda look for.

Interview Advice: The interview/assessment centre takes a whole day but, if you allow it to be, can be quite enjoyable. Expect to be asked to do things individually and as a group and use these times to really show that you can operate constructively within both scenarios. For the interview itself nothing beats the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) method, look it up and use it. Again, the interviewer isn't looking to trip you up, so relax and just talk about what you've done and how you've done it. Coming with some statistics up your sleeve and using them relevantly (don't just shoehorn them in, it's really embarrassing to watch) demonstrate commitment, interest and ability to apply learning. Nothing at the assessment centre is really scary or confusing, it's all explained and there's plenty of space to ask questions before the task begins, you're also given a rough outline well in advance of the day. So don't come expect a House of Horrors, it's a friendly business.

Interview Advice: The First Group Graduate application process is a challenging one, as is any graduate application process.

DCC plc

Graduate Executive, Operational Finance Team at DCC plc

Application Advice: Make sure you are up for a challenge, and that you are willing to be independent. There is not a lot of hand-holding, at least not in my experience, which is good but not for everyone. Some people would probably prefer a softer entry into work life, and if so, then this is not for them.

Interview Advice: The interviews very much focused on your personal competencies, and how you have applied these in the real world. The best advice I could give would be, make a list of all your strengths, find an example of how you have demonstrated them in real life, and another that shows how you would then apply that within the workplace theoretically. Candidate will most likely be rewarded for showing that questions have been thought about, and that considered, practical responses are given.

Network Rail

Seasons Delivery Specialist, Operations at Network Rail

Application Advice: Do your research. It doesn't take long to go on a company's website and read a few of their documents - it'll help you to no end whilst applying. Don't make the mistake of thinking that Network Rail run trains; Network Rail is an infrastructure owner and maintainer.

Interview Advice: Answer the questions and be willing to think outside the box. You will not be expected to know everything but it will be your train of thought that matters. Perhaps suggest technologies from other industries you are more familiar with and how they could improve the railways but above all, Network Rail is a safety focused company and you will not get a job unless you prove you are safety conscious and willing to put the safety of our workforce and the traveling public above all else.

Safety Improvement Specialist, at Network Rail

Application Advice: Think about the experiences you have had already and apply these to the application, these do not need to be in a work environment. Liking railways is not necessarily what the business is looking for, a head for business and delivering on targets will get you much further than knowing huge amounts about trains and railways!

Interview Advice: Be friendly and approachable, a competitive attitude at the assessment centre will make group work very difficult. Ask questions, you need to make sure Network Rail are right for you, not just you being right for us. Research the business and industry, but don't be overwhelmed by it, the rail industry is massive and you are not expected to know all about it at interview.

Network Rail

Graduate (Project Management), Infrastructure Projects at Network Rail

Application Advice: Find out what project management is - p'raps read the APM's 'Starting Out in Project Management' (that may not be the exact title). Find out a little about the rail industry, but there's no need to try to come across as a total anorak - in fact, it could be a disadvantage.

Interview Advice: Questions you may be asked: 'Why do you want to work for Network Rail?' 'What interests you about project management?' 'What appeals to you about Network Rail's Project Management graduate scheme?' + a number of competency-based questions: example of time you've shown teamwork/leaderhsip skills etc. One which stumped me: 'What tools does a project manager use?' I was thinking along the lines of planning software packages (since joining NR I've discovered that actually there will normally be a dedicated planner who does this), but the answer they were actually looking for (or one of them) was 'risk management'.

Graduate Manager, Network Operations at Network Rail

Application Advice: You need enthusiasm and confidence. You also need to show that you are motivated and organised - and a proper reason as to why you are interested in the railways is always good.

Interview Advice: On the assessment day I was asked to do a case study on a problem affecting the railway, listing all the things I would do to solve the problem. Then there was a group study where we had to build a strategy around a railway event - in that just make sure you keep an eye on the time and always make sure you are respectful of other's opinions. Then we had to present an individual idea relating to the railway problem we listed solutions for earlier and answer questions about it to an examiner.

Think about what makes you different from the other candidates. You don't need to have climbed a mountain or trecked across the Amazon but focus on why your previous experience in customer service roles makes you stand out.

Interview Advice: Again, it's about letting your strengths and behaviours do the talking. If you're passionate then show passion, if you're someone who loves to drive change then let that shine through. Engage with the others on the assessment centre and show your interpersonal skills, Morrisons aren't just looking for somebody to sit behind a computer all day, you need to be able to interact with a wide variety of people on a day to day basis.

Brand Assistant, Marketing (Brand) at easyJet

Application Advice: Make sure your cover letter really shows how much of a 'go-getter' you are - the company isn't really the right place for someone who waits around for things to just happen!

Interview Advice: Just be yourself would be the best advice I could give. The assessment day was fairly relaxed, designed to make you feel at ease. Use it as a chance to find out if the company is the right fit for you too. I was asked a lot of questions from my CV (so make sure you know it well) and questions about where I'd demonstrated certain skills - it's best to have lots of different examples.I was also thrown a few more unusual questions, but the interview was very relaxed so don't panic yourself.

Cabin Services Graduate, Cabin Services at easyJet

Application Advice: An interest in aviation is preferable but not essential - I didn't really know anything about the industry before I came but I was passionate about travel and customer experience, which has definitely helped me in my placements. So if you don't know much about aviation I wouldn't let that stop you - you're here to learn!

Interview Advice: Like everyone else says - be yourself. If you fit in with our values then you'll be right at home! Draw on all your experiences, I think it's best to show you're well rounded and can give examples from times when you managed or achieved something. Speak up - don't be that quiet person in the corner, but be wary of how you're coming across to other people. You need to be a team player to work here.

Amey

Graduate Project Coordinator, Fleet & Plant at Amey

Application Advice: Definitely apply for this graduate programme! I have felt very supported and am learning a lot about the industry and working life. Be confident in your ideas about what and where you want to be.

Interview Advice: The telephone interview was fairly straight forward with the standard questions. There were a few curve balls in there - for example "Do you have any regrets?". Also do not underestimate the importance of extra-curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh or any other achievements. The assessment day is really interesting and very competitive - be confident but also learn to listen to others in the group exercise, as this is a good skill to have!

When you choose your area there's so much information on the careers website, definitely use it!

Interview Advice: When I went to the assessment centre I had it in my mind that it would all feel very competitive and scary but everyone was really chatty and friendly. I was worried about being asked aviation/operations related questions but luckily they don't focus on that kind of knowledge. My advice would be to learn about the company, and especially learn about it's values and pillars and how you demonstrate those because that will show assessors if you're the right fit for the company.
