    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

    I applied online, as part of the usual graduate process. First, I had to complete the online application and answer selection criteria. I was then progressed to psychometric testing phase. After this, I had a phone screen interview and was progressed to the Assessment Centre. AC had 4 people in total, and included a group activity, individual presentation (that was given a week before to prepare based on a topic), written assessment and one on one interview with managers. Very structured and well run.
