I have applied for the Human Capital-Organisation Transformation Graduate Scheme at Deloitte. I am due to give a job simulation by the end of tomorrow! I found this forum very late. I don't know if this is the pandemic or in general, but I am panicking a lot and I am drooling in anxiety. PLEASE HELP! Any tips? What questions can I expect? What will be the format of the simulation?

What do you mean you are "due to give a job simulation"? I think you mean "I am due to take a job simulation assessment". These are typically just situational tests. Some of them additionally have numerical tests and video assessments.

Any special preparations needed?

Just read the email that you were given. It should contain all the advice that you need.

There is no advice as such, it only states that it will be a set of pre-recorded questions.

So did they tell you whether you need a webcam, a pen and paper, a calculator etc?

Right, so there is a video assessment. Most video assessments I have come across ask questions such as "Why the company?", "Why the role?", "What challenges are there is the industry?" and also some competency based questions such as "Describe a time you made a difficult decision" etc.

In fairness the Deloitte ones are a bit bizarre, nothing to do with the company or service line and instead how do you deal with a colleague with personal issues etc.

Deloitte JS video questions (consulting): 1. Introduce yourself to senior member? 2. You join a new team how would you approach this to achieve success? 3. Your senior messages you late in the day and ask for your help what would you do? 4. Your colleague emails you about a discrepancy in your work how would you resolve this? 5. A time you were successful in a team?
…. 2 email questions 1. Summarise some data about AI (easy take info you calculated from MC q before and then informally sign in and out and give recommendation etc) 2. Coworker emails you with a problem of workload how would you reply (first is part of a 30 min section second is like 8-10 mins limit.
… rank and MC questions … very simple maths questions of additions of set up cost of AI (add first two columns and read worded part for the is this true questions. Rest are like the questions in previous stage.
Good luck All! I know this part of process sucks

My biggest tip is practice these questions 10 times each, use the practice questions in the beginning to get out of your robotic nervous state and stay loose but enthusiastic…. Always link your answer to the 4 core values …. Integrity, commitment to each other, strength through diversity, delivering greatest value to clients… if you do that confidently you will pass god willing… also use full time to prep you get like 2 mins to prep each vid Q, dont rush

Are all the questions timed, or is it only the video questions? Were the numerical questions as difficult as the ones in the immersive online assessment?
