    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at IFDS in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    So the post advertised through a Society at university. Sent in my cv to what seemed to be a third party. Got emailed asking for a phone interview.

    Intreview asked 3 questions:
    -why IFDS
    -why business operations
    -what are your weaknesses

    Got asked to do some online tests for them but I decline as I did not want that internship.
