    Graduate Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs (Australia)

    Interview

    I took part in the assessment/interview day for the 2019 Graduate Program with DVA. While the day as a whole was as expected of any assessment day the panel interview was a different story. Approximately 3 women and 1 man where on the panel. I was a slightly older graduate applicant in my early 30's. I was asked extremely direct questions by the male interviewer about my family and husband. Out of the approximate 12 questions I was asked only 3 where actually about my work history and ability to do the job. the rest included questions like - Where does your husband work and what does he do? Is your husband in the Army? How does your husband feel about you returning to work? How many children do you have? How will you cope with having a family and working full time? All questions I felt where irrelevant and intrusive. I also felt that I was only being asked these questions because I was a female applicant - if I was a male applicant I feel like I would not have been asked these questions. I was successful in gaining a position on the graduate program in the second round of offers however I declined as I did not want to join an organisation that interviewed as if it where the year 1950. Happily I was successful on another graduate program.
    Interview

    Most questions contained multiple parts so you had to remember several items at one time and respond.
