    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mott MacDonald (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Informal chat about my c.v. then did a couple of technical questions (bending moments and a structural design) with the interviewers. They told me a bit more about the company and asked whether I had any questions and finally I spoke to a recent graduate. It was very friendly and went by very quickly, lasted about an hour. No competency questions, which I thought was unusual. Just relax and take it as a chance to ask them questions as well during the interview!
