6. Preparing for a Graduate Interview

Graduate schemes usually have at least one interview and some have more, so this event is perfect for helping you improve your interview skills. If you’re dreading that interview, come along to understand different types of interview questions, how you get scored, and practice answering questions in a relaxed environment. You will also get feedback from a top graduate employer (handy, ey?!).
