    Still not been called in for the assessment center - last correspondence was 25th July or something. They have me down for a Degree Apprenticeship - does that have a different start date or something? If everyone starts about the same time - September then im thinking that they are cutting it short.. or.. are they keeping me as a reserve now for next year if and when it starts again?!?!
    I doubt phoning HR would help much. What do yous think?
    I'm in the same position mate, degree apprenticeship on Taleo website, I haven't heard anything and last correspondence was around that time too, you're not alone! Emailed HR but they've still to get back to me, i'm not optimistic about getting an assessment center. I'm in Belfast, what's your location?

    Nah it's not... They gave me apprentice link log in whilst I was completing my checks. Just send whoever is dealing with your application an email and ask what the next steps are and when you will next hear something.

    I cannot stress enough on how much you need to contact the person who has been emailing you about your job offer etc - you need to let them know your concerns. If you don't do so then you may end up in a mess. You will have some contact details for someone based on your application/job offer so all I can advise is that you contact them as soon as possible!!

    Don't get me wrong it was a long week but it was good and informative. Got to meet lots of people and start building a professional network, the only small problem I had was that my line manager hadn't contacted me and I did not know who they were - this was sorted out incredibly quickly and I am looking forward to meeting him on monday. We were talked to about volunteering opportunities both within BT and with other companies two that I am specifically looking at are STEMNET to become a STEM ambassador and also Barefoot to get involved in delivering computing at a primary school level. I had a good week met loads of people and have come away excited to start the apprenticeship and get studying about my chosen field.
