Inside information on the company’s graduate scheme (through my research)
All graduate employers go through a process of assessing who is the right candidate, with the right skills. There are many ways that companies can assess who is the right person for a job, from a very basic interview and references, to a more effective and thorough assessment centre. Typically, the larger the company and bigger the brand the more systematic and involved the process will be. For example, a graduate job at a local small business may involve two interviews but a globally prominent company may have six steps in their recruitment process.
In my commercial career, I have worked with HR departments and recruited graduates into businesses for over 20 years and can explain the important elements that make you stand out and get noticed in this process. Some of these are company specific but many of these are generic and in house 'secrets'. In my academic career, I also have over 20 years’ experience helping final year students through recruitment steps, from the simple to the very complex and have a history of results.
