    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marie Curie (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    The second the virtual interview started I already knew I didn’t get the job. The first thing they did was take a photo of me with hardly an explanation behind it, I thought this was very bizarre and I felt immediately awkward. Neither interviewer displayed any particular interest in getting to know me during the 20 mins interview (far too short a time if you ask me), the questions were very basic but they didn’t even ask me for my notice period or salary expectations to align me properly to the job. A big clue they weren’t interested. For a 20 minute interview I feel I should have been telephone screened prior to the first stage interview so they at least had my basic info. I was barely given an opportunity to ask questions - it seemed that both interviewers were keen to leave and/or forgot to let me ask questions. I just about squeezed one in at the end, and due to the answer given to me I already knew I wasn’t successful during the interview. The interviewer answered my question in a way that implied I will not get to work with Marie Curie first hand. After chasing up on the outcome (I already knew I didn’t get it - but it’s the principal), my feedback was a pretty cold, standardised email with no personal touch “we have decided to progress with other candidates with skills that better align with the role”... in which case I don’t understand why I was shortlisted if it’s a case of skill set which my CV outlines. I would have preferred honest, in depth feedback given the time I put in to researching and preparing for an interview. I didn’t have a good experience as a candidate which is a shame as I admire this charity. I’m really put off applying for future roles here.
