    International Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Enterprise Ireland (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The International Graduate Programme with Enterprise Ireland has a comprehensive application process. This 5-part process begins with a standard online application, followed by series of psychometric tests. After the psychometric tests you will be invited to do a video interview which involves 3 questions, you have 3 minutes per question to record your answer. After the video interview stage, you will receive an invitation to take part in a half-day assessment centre. There are 3 stages to this process, a written assignment where you have to respond to an email of complaint from a client. A group discussion surrounding a case study where there are 5/6 different solutions, each person has to argue their point for a certain solution. There is also a presentation element whereby you are given 15 minutes to prepare a presentation based on information given to you about a company's efficiency and how you can improve it. The final round consists of an interview with a manager of an Enterprise Ireland office overseas, as well as a member of HR. You have to prepare a 5 minute presentation on how you would convince a company to begin exporting.

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary is quite low, €24-€25,000. I was going to be based in the Boston office working in the Health Sciences Industry which I do not have any interest in. Also, the office size is very small, it would be 2 graduates and a direct manager. Also, there were better offers elsewhere which made more sense for me.
