    Employer Engagement Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University College London.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, through the UCL website. They had the standard questions, about how my experience etc fitted with the job description and role. The website was fine to use, though I did find it odd I have to add my GCSEs to my education history.

    I was sent an email inviting me to interview, along with a link to book my interview time. It was a panel interview of 3 people (2 managers and a guest from UoL), though none of the correspondence from UCL mentioned who I would be meeting. They were all very pleasant, and I felt that it was a good interview, at least on their behalf, with the panel drilling down on specifics of processes used to solve problems, software I had used previously, and how I prioritise. This was different from other interviews I have attended, and it was good that they were asking questions, rather than sitting back and letting the candidate talk themselves in to - or out of - the job.

    The panel interview lasted around 40 minutes, though I think we went over the allotted time. I also had a written test, which was to reply to an email from an employer who was going to be presenting at a careers fair, and had requests that I wouldn't be able to meet. This seemed fairly elementary, but as I didn't get an offer, what the hell do I know?
