    Interview

    The interview process was not made because I applied during the UCAS clearance in the summer and there was not much time I suppose. But from the schoolmates I have made, the interview was not needed or it was very easy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Westminster in July 2018.

    Interview

    Although the initial application process was relatively easy, unfortunately the University of Westminster messed up my application and invited me to the wrong job interview, or so they initially said and then backtracked to say they had input the wrong job number.

    When I arrived at the interview I was met by someone with sunglasses on her head, only to later find out she was the manager. Throughout the interview the three people asked various questions but I got the hint whilst in there that they weren’t really listening as they kept looking anywhere else but at me. This was extremely off-putting and very unprofessional - a recurring theme throughout.

    After waiting 3 weeks and after numerous times of chasing, unsurprisingly I wasn’t selected but in all honesty I don’t think I would have accepted the job as given the fact they had 7 job vacancies in the same department all at the same time makes me think “wake up and smell the coffee”!
