Tesco

Graduate Technologist, Healthcare at Tesco

Application Advice: Don't worry about the product area you want to work in; there are lots of opportunity to move around once you're inside Tesco. Focus on your skills and how they will make you into a great technologist. Being analytically minded, focused and innovative are key.

Interview Advice: My most difficult question was "When have you failed at something and how did you come back from it?". I'd recommend being open and honest, but always focus on the positives; what you gained from the experience and why it's made you a better person, but be prepared for the follow up of "How do we know it won't happen again?".
