    Negotiation

    Prepare to be asked questions based on the job application itself. Listen to the opening presentation because you will be asked later ''what do you know about the company''. They will be taking notes whilst you speak but do not feel discourage, maintain eye contact. Most importantly, make sure you have good questions to ask at the end graduate performance review etc

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Croydon, England (UK)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    My interview was at the Croydon office for Graduate Highways Engineer. The office has a friendly and welcoming environment.

    The interview consisted of 6 competency-based questions ("Tell me about a time when you ___") and a Highway technical question.

    I would highly recommend revising all the questions presented on Glassdoor as that enabled me to be more prepared for some of the questions asked. Also do some research on the company, remember your experiences thoroughly and prepare questions to ask at the start and end of the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Manchester City Centre, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Very good interview process, easy and straight forward, just an online application and interview. The interview consists of 1 group exercise and then a 2 to 1 or 1 to 1 interview. Both went extremely well and questions are pretty generic in the sense they are to test your competancy, just answer truthfully and you should be fine.
