    Heyy, I'm filling in an application form to work for the mobile phone company THREE/3G.

    Its a part time sales associate position (16hrs).

    In this application form it says, "what do you know about 3 as a business?"

    Not really sure how to answer this, can someone give me tips on what to say and maybe even how to impress

    Thankss

    My guess would be simply to explain to them who they are and make it obvious that you know what their USP (unique selling point) is, and what makes them the business they are, as opposed to all the other Mobile companies.
    And possibly explain what you feel their business culture and general organisation is like. In terms of ethics and the way their business runs on a day to day basis.

    I know this may be pretty obvious but it might be a different perspective.

    heya. look on their website on the 'about us' section, and reword and extend some of the things they've talked about there. perhaps say how you're suited to this by mentioning some of the skills that you have if you haven't mentioned them elsewhere on the application.
    if you want to add some more things about general phone businesses look at other company websites.. orange, o2 etc.

    They were the first network to utilise video calling etc. on such a wide scale. etc.

    Talk about their success and how quickly they've grown over the last few years etc.

    Maybe mention that you can identify who their largest competitors are? Especially on the video calling front. I think Vodafone were the first people to emerge with 3G technology alongside them or something.
    It will show you can analyse risks and competition etc.
