    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of East Anglia (Norwich, England) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was by skype as I was applying from another country. So that made the process a bit awkward compared to an in person interview. The interview seemed to go well, and all the questions asked were fair and appropriate. There were four people on the interview panel. Each represented a department I would work for or with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at University of East Anglia in September 2014.

    Interview

    I dropped by the café with a cover letter and a CV at the right time, when the manager was passing by, so she picked it up. As Unio and the Student Bars were connected, I first got a call from the Bar and did a trial shift on Fresher's Week which was quite stressful as I wasn't trained. I ended up mostly working in the café, where I once again did a trial shift but was explained how to prepare drinks.
