So I thought I should start a discussion as there isn't one for 2019, the platform just opened for applications

I completed the online test on 19/12/2018, no response yet
Any one got any tips for the video interview? anyone who didn't get in last year and has any info to share?

We supply the software to conduct video interviews, so we can definitely help you get prepared.

Most companies will ask you competency based questions (i.e. how you do something) with a much smaller number asking strengths-based questions (i.e. what engages and interests you). These approaches are very different, so be sure to clarify which one will be used for your interview. Whichever type of questions they asked, the hiring company will be looking to establish whether you can do the job to the required standard while fitting into the existing culture.

Most will be open questions. They usually consist of one part but some may digress to find out a little bit more about you. Nearly all the interview questions will be very straightforward, with no trick questions. Don’t be surprised if you are initially asked an icebreaker question. This is intended to ease you into the process and make you feel more comfortable.

Typically, you will have between 1.5 and 2 minutes to respond to a question. Hiring companies tend to give you more time than you need. They won’t be evaluating you on how long your answer is, so don’t think that you need to fill every second of the allocated time. If you finish your answer and still have time remaining, simply press the option to move on to the next question. There is no need to wait until the end of the allotted time.

If you want to familiarise yourself with the process, you can trial one question at https://shortlist.me/ After the free question you would need to upgrade to continue, but it might help you understand how it works at least https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/wn...O4m9QYPLbl-U1g

Hope this helps and good luck! If you have any more questions just shout.

I think it’s once, they said it’s time limited. I am worried as well, do you think I will get away from the fact that I am not a native speaker? What I am trying to say is, do the employers recognise the difference between excellent communication skills and fluency of the language used - despite the fact that there is a thin connection between the two?

Hey, I hope it went well for you. Were they competency-based q's and did you get two attempts or just one? Going to do mine tomorrow so will keep you updated if/ when I hear back.

So I've done the video interview. In my case, there were three competency questions and no opportunity to re-record.

Hope that helps.

Good luck!

I did the video interview in early December and haven't heard anything back yet. Emailed them and they said they should be getting back to me soon. The application processes for graduate schemes are so frustrating!Curious as to where else everyone is applying?
