    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BBC (London, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The job was for a research assistant within the BBC audiences teams. Before attending the assessment day two online tasks had to be completed in numerical reasoning and critical thinking. The assessment day included two short interviews (around 20 minutes each) and a group task in which we had to make decisions based on some audience data for a TV program.
