I’m not an applicant, but I’d assume you’d like any and all responses ASAP.
Perhaps try with a different browser?

I’ve checked it multiple times? I even used a different laptop 😭 I’m about to lose it. The fact that the assessment day is so soon as well I should be worried.

Don’t worry, these things happen!
Email the work contact, they’ll get back to you.
Include a screenshot

Keep it simple and just describe the problem and ask if they know how to resolve the issue. Including the kind regards - name, formalities.

Everything will be fine

Just a tip for your assessment centre, I’ve assessed these myself.
If you have to do a group exercise, be a team player. Make sure everyone agrees on decisions/choices, and if you feel someone has been cut out of the conversation or is relatively quiet, ask them their opinion.
I’ve never personally looked to see who was leading the group, but instead who steered the collective group towards the final objective. People who do tend to try and lead a group, often steer their own agenda without the group.

Following the tips I’ve outlined will demonstrate better leadership and teamwork skills than trying to directly lead the group.

Thank youuuu so much! I was literally going to hit you with this as a follow up question. May I just add I’m not go great of a reader like I can read but I do have an odd accent hence why I’m trying to get into the technical aspect of this apprenticeship any advice on being confident but not too confident and really showing my talent in trying?

I won’t ask background on your reading abilities, this is confidential to you. Saying that, if you have an associated disability, the employer has a responsibility to accommodate that and is not subject to any form of comparisons in applicant selection. If it’s academic purposes, or English is your second language, your English education must be proficient enough to have made it to the assessment centre stage. Most of my team is European or speak English as a second language, it’s as important for the native speaker to adapt their communication as it is for the 2nd language speaker. A lot of people at my work struggle to understand my strong northern accent. Don’t worry

Apprenticeships don’t really require you to be up to speed with the industry or have previous experience, they’re more interested in your passion for the subject and specific reasons for choosing to apply for that role. They ultimately want to select the candidate who shows the most passion towards the specific role and who is most likely to see the scheme to the end. You should know what the company does and its history, almost to a worship level, they want to know you’d be proud to work there.

The application must have provided a list of qualities they’re looking for. Think of an example in which you’ve demonstrated these qualities, two examples if you can.

Ignore your confidence in technical ability, but understand and recognise your strong and weak point. More importantly, identify how you’ve tried to overcome them with examples. This is an excellent way to answer the dreaded “what is your greatest weakness?” question.

Instead, be confident in your passion for the subject/industry, your purpose for applying, and the experiences that have defined who you are. All of the applicants will have similar qualifications, you share your combination of individual experiences and specific personality in applying for this role with nobody.

Interviewers will identify your ability to draw from your experiences as good assessment preperation. I was terrified and very shy when I sat my assessment day, but my confidence in being passionate and driven to get the apprenticeship drove me to perform on the day.

Apologies for the essay, hope this helps

Hey, so I got told the assessment centre date is on April 6th and for some reason the schedule system doesn’t work for me ...I got the invitation on the 18th of this month so I’m kinda confused however I emailed the recruitment team and been told they’ll change it and the new dates will come out soon. I haven’t got the question yet? Should I worry...

Hi mate, sorry for the delayed reply...

You should of had the question in the original email invite, that's if your referring to the presentation question

in regards to the changing date they told me the same as you...that the new invites would be out soon. Haven't received it yet though

Wait for this week coming up and I recon the new invites will be released, if they're not I will also email recruitment just to make sure.

For piece of mind the presentation question I got was something like "what excites you about Fujitsu and the tech industry" if that rings any bells?

What is the job/program you originally applied for??
