    Graduate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, England

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hays (Reading, England).

    Interview

    Stage 1 - Telephone interview, reviewing CV and application process, asking basic questions about myself and the company/job. It is very helpful if you research the company - they appreciate it!
    Stage 2 - Face to Face Interview with a manager. They asked more questions about myself and my situation, as well as some situational questions.

    Interviewers were very friendly and professional.

    —13 days ago
    "Why do you want this job?"

    It's one of the most common interview questions, and often one of the easiest to slip up on. On the face of it, the interviewer is simply asking "Why are you sat across from me in the interview room today?"
