I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Australian Bureau of Statistics in June 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online through their website, application included fairly easy questionnaire with answers found on the site. Followed up by a phone interview (few technical questions but mostly a personality assessment, goals & motivation etc) then a group assessment day with group and solo activities. Group assessment day was with applications for all streams.

Interview Question – How to find a specific statistic in the catalogues.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation available, maybe because they had to assist with moving me interstate.
