Interviews, tests and assessment centres

Every organisation uses a different selection process. You may take part in a direct interview, selection test, assessment centre or a combination of all three. Preparation is key; use the information and advice below to help you prepare.

  • Interviews

    Interviews come in many different forms. Check out our advice about preparation, technique and how to deal with tough questions.

  • Selection tests

    Develop your understanding of why selection tests are used and what they require you to do. Don't forget to practice as well.

  • Assessment centres

    No two assessment centres are the same. Have a look at this page to see what might be involved and how to stand out.

  • Researching employers

    All applications should be tailored to the specific employer. If you want to stand out, it's essential that you research the employer before you apply.
