Advice to Management
Promote collaboration and teamwork more
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Red Hat (Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England) in January 2020.
Application followed by a 30-minute telephone interview where you're asked about your background and some competency-based questions. If you're successful in that you're invited to their Farnborough offices for an assessment centre.
The day started with a group exercise where you worked in a team to follow a customer's requirements; it seemed to be assessing how well you can deal with changing requirements (Red Hat is a major proponent of Agile methodologies) as well as working with a team to gather requirements.
The next session was an interview. You were asked competency-based questions relative to the role. Try and think about what you want to present to the interviewer, if you study a degree with a final project its likely they'll ask about that.
The final two assessments were a presentation and an instructions-based task. The presentation was pretty difficult, they give you a few topics and around 30 minutes to prepare a 10-minute presentation. It could also be whatever you want but its probably beneficial to discuss technology at a technology company. The instructions-based task was working in pairs or threes to devise a set of instructions to a question.
Failed but was given a breakdown of what went well and what could go better over the phone which is much appreciated.
