    Pros

    Many different and interesting projects to work on with some input into what you want to do. Most coworkers were great and happy to give help or advise. Low stress environment. This is specifically for the ICT Stream.

    Cons

    A few dinosaurs in management positions who are not up to date with modern technology and have unmeetable expectations. 90% of jobs are in Canberra.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure managers know about what they are trying to manage.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Australian Bureau of Statistics.

    Interview Details

    Of the public sector jobs I applied for, ABS had the fewest number of stages. Passing the initial written application, the second stage involved a 1 hour written assessment responding to one of a number of questions that are respectively related to the various graduate streams ABS offered. Although preparation was not required (if not impossible) and you are able to use the internet to look for sources, I found that having a solid background and/or understanding of current political and social issues helped tremendously in answering the question of my choice. The second last round was a phone interview with an ABS employee. Following that was a final face to face interview.
