Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Leeds, England) in May 2012.

Interview

Submission of CV and covering letter followed by interview with two staff members. The interview consisted of competency based questions, a problem solving exercise, discussion of the exercise followed by a more informal chat about the industry, projects you might be interested in etc. The two interviewers seemed friendly and genuine.

The process seems to have been updated to an on-line portal advertising jobs and allowing for on-line applications and a searchable profile with candidate preferences, work experience, skills audit and educational achievements.

Interview Questions

  • The problem solving exercise was to suggest improvement measures for a small town divided by a heavily trafficked main road which is flanked by an ecologically sensitive area and a river with limited crossing potential.   1 Answer
