After you have passed the online tests stage, you will be invited to the first round interview – which will most likely take form of a telephone interview.
This is a chance for you to demonstrate your passions and skills that would make you suitable for the role.
It will be competency based (CBI). Think about the projects you have previously worked on, in your professional experiences or education, and think about what your role was, what have you achieved and how you approached any problems.
Tip: Remember, it is important to talk about a variety of experiences so do not get hung up on one job you did in the past.
Tip: Prepare and write down a couple of projects or initiatives that you did exceptionally well in. The interviewer will be interested in understanding how you approached the problem, any analysis you did, the data gathered, insights and actions taken, results achieved and what your role was.
You should prepare some ideas of examples that you can later use during your interview, and should base these on the most common types of interview questions.
