Q. Have you got any tips from your experience on how to smash the application and interview process?
Have a casual chat beforehand – some places let you do this and you can gauge what they are looking for to make your application strong.
Networking again – you can sometimes just send your CV to someone to pass it to their manager rather than filling in an internet form.
When interviewing make sure you have questions at the end – good ones include:
- What projects will I be working on?
- What do you expect to see from me in the first 6 months?
- What do you think I will struggle with?
If you are struggling to remember the questions you are being asked in an online interview, ask for them to put the question in the chat box so you can refer to it.
