    Hi guys!

    I have been selected to do a video interview for PLS.

    I have never done one of these before so was wondering if anyone has any tips on what to expect.

    What kind of questions do they tend to ask?

    Thank you! x

    Hi, I've got a PLS video interview too! Apparently it's 4 competency based questions, 15 seconds to prepare and 2 minutes to answer. I'm worried about the questions too!

    Apparently last year one of the qs was about a set back and how you dealt with it, so i'm preparing that answer just incase it comes up. I think it's all competency based, but if either of you have done it let me know if i'm wrong!

    What office are you both applying for? I'm London.

    Hey guys, just done my interview and it wasn't too scary - it's actually 30 seconds to prepare and 2 mins to answer. All competency/scenario based. Good luck!

    Hey guys,

    My interview really isn't too bad, mine had nothing to do with commercial awareness/IM as a business etc, was all strengths based scenario questions so i'd advice picking out evidence for times you displayed a particular skill and answering using the STAR method good luck!
