    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Bristol in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through the University website in March. I didn't hear anything from the University until mid-June, when I was offered an interview with Hiatt Baker. I was not in Bristol at the time, so they offered to do a Skype interview. Admin made a mistake and did not give me a time for the interview, so I was unable to prepare for it. With 5 minutes notice, I conducted the interview with the Warden and deputy Warden. They were very friendly and welcoming.
