Interview

I was invited for an interview shortly after I applied and a week later I had the interview. The process was really quick, which I appreciated. I was extremely impressed by the panel (3 members). The panellists were very friendly and they clearly read my application. They remembered specific details that they followed up on. The questions were interesting and the interview was very well-structured. The task was relevant and interesting, but I would have preferred to do it at the end rather than before the interview. I wouldn't have been as nervous. That was the only con for me. Although I didn't get the job, I had a really positive experience and was given helpful feedback with the rejection email. I would definitely apply again.

Interview Questions
  • Give an example of an improvement you've made in the workplace. How would you help a client who was struggling to communicate in English? How would you communicate with the IT team about a technical issue (website)? What techniques do you use to manage your workload? How do you deal with stress? Provide an example of a difficult situation you had to deal with. How did you manage it? Provide an example of a mistake you've made. How did you cope with it?

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cambridge University Press & Assessment (Cambridge, East of England, England, England)

Interview

Application followed by invitation to face-to-face (via MS Teams) interview with two individuals. Interviewers were pleasant and questioned in a way that seemed largely effective in allowing me to present my skills, experience and knowledge. I maybe would have expected them to probe a bit more with follow-up questions. I only received an automated rejection email initially and there was some delay in receiving a response to a request for feedback (which I typically expect if I have done a face-to-face interview).

Interview Questions
  • How would you manage an internal stakeholder's requirements conflicting with what the customer is asking for?
