Graduate Civil Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Manchester City Centre, England
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Manchester City Centre, England) in December 2015.

Interview

Very good interview process, easy and straight forward, just an online application and interview. The interview consists of 1 group exercise and then a 2 to 1 or 1 to 1 interview. Both went extremely well and questions are pretty generic in the sense they are to test your competancy, just answer truthfully and you should be fine.
