    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call a week after, I was then invited to do a video interview where you are asked pre-recorded questions and have about 60 seconds to record your answers.
    After passing the video interview I was invited for to an assessment centre in London which entails 3 short interviews and 4 tests. The interviews each had about 4-6 questions where the interviewers do not prompt you for answers, so they can last between 10-20 minutes depending on the level of detail you give, so make sure you include as much detail as possible, use examples and make it relevant to the stream you are applying for. This is a strength-based interview.

    Tests:
    Venn diagrams and set notation: this involves shading regions or write the outcome of the shaded region. You will be given links to prepare for this which will be enough

    Aptitude test: a variety of logic questions, business questions and IT questions, IT acronyms, programming. Nothing too difficult, this one you cannot really prepare for however look at some IT terms.

    Maths Test: GCSE maths, arithmetic calculations, Pythagorean Theorem, simultaneous equations, fractions and percentages, you will be given links.

    Verbal Reasoning: requires you to read through a passage and answer questions e.g. whether the information presented is either true, false or cannot say.

    Interview Questions

    • Would your family and friends describe you as responsible?
      How would you convince a client to use a technology that was controversial?
      Are you passionate about everything you do?
      What does a successful day look like to you?
      Why do you want a career in IT?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It all started off with a telephone interview, where you would be asked about your educational background, skills and your interest in the IT world. Then progressed to a video interview, which I found it uncomfortable as I had to answer to a pre-recorded questions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    3 strength based interviews. All happened within 45 minutes. There is a 3-5 minutes break between the interviews. 6 questions in each interview and the first question is warm up question and it is not assessed. One advice I would give DON'T BE NERVOUS.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you prefer? One task at a time or multitasking? If a client wants to bring up a deadline earlier what would you do? What would be your approach to finding the root cause of a problem? Do you prefer relevant information or wider context? If you were to suggest a client use a controversial technology how would you convince the client to use it?   Answer Question
