DHL Supply Chain

Finance Graduate, Finance at DHL Supply Chain

Application Advice: Show an interest in both DHL Supply Chain and the Logistics industry. They are open-minded to the subject of the degree that you have, so don't be caught up on whether your degree is directly appropriate. Always show enthusiasm when answering questions as they look for keen individuals.

Interview Advice: Interview is in the form of an assessment center/experience day. Day made up of 2 group tasks, an individual presentation and a 1-2-1 interview. Group tasks are looking for active leadership, teamwork and communication, so be sure to always give your input into the scenario. Timekeeping is vital during these tasks. The presentation is highlighting your communication skills and the ability to stick to the task and deal with on-the-spot questions. They are not assessing the material of the presentation itself, so don't be caught up on this. The interview will require lots of examples from your past experiences (not just work - uni, school, part-time jobs, hobbies). Be confident and make the most of being able to talk to other candidates, current graduates and assessors.

DHL Supply Chain

Graduate, Solutions Design at DHL Supply Chain

Application Advice: Be yourself, use the opportunity to talk to DHL representatives - applications are as much about making sure a company is a fit for you as for the company to make sure you are a good fit for them. Everyone I have met in DHL has been very generous with their time and open and honest about what you can expect from the company.

Interview Advice: Great thing about the process is that there are multiple opportunities to showcase what you have to offer the company. It isn't all on one pitch or one interview, and no-one is trying to trip you up; just trying to give you the opportunity to share what you have to offer. Just approach it like that and enjoy the assessment centre day.
