- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Jacobs in July 2014.Interview Details
Process took two weeks from online submission to job offer. Applied online by simply submitting my CV and covering letter. Had a short chat with HR few days later via telephone to tell me more about the role and to find out more about myself. I was invited to a face to face interview, which took place the following week.
There were two interviewers who were senior members of staff. Interviewers were friendly and made it comfortable. We spoke about my university projects, modules I've taken, what I enjoyed at uni, etc. Then competency questions, mainly focusing on leadership and teamwork skills. Next, some questions focusing on materials, inspection, maintenance, health and safety and anything involved in the role. I was also given a short test to calculate max. bending moments and draw various simple bending moment diagrams.
Lastly they asked about my salary expectations and availability. I received an offer within a few days.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsWhen they asked what my salary expectations were during the interview, I mentioned a salary range typical of that in the industry and area. They offered me the high end of that range so I didn't feel the need to negotiate.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
