Graduates applying for their second position in their career can now expect to face a more rigorous interview process. One of our recent experienced graduates was requested to prepare a white paper, which can be downloaded in this post.
Following the tough competition of getting their initial work placement or first job within the financial services industry, experienced applicants are now faced with more than just the standard question-and-answer interview process that most expect when they apply for their second job.
The increased demand for future associates to sit aptitude tests and attend team assimilation events commands candidates to reflect a 4D image of how they present themselves on paper.
More than this, some candidates are required to present a white paper: a document that validates the candidate’s research skills, communication skills and in-depth knowledge of financial services.
We see this as beneficial for the both the candidate and the hiring organisation. One of our recent experienced graduate candidates was requested to prepare a white paper which resulted in her securing an exceptional position with one of the best professional service firms in the market.
Are you an experienced graduate? If so, we would be keen to hear about your experiences of this extended interview process. Join the discussion in our LinkedIn group.
