"Competency-based questions mostly."
Graduate, London
"Mainly skills-based and scenario questions."

Graduate, London (City)
"Why do you want to work for BNP Paribas Real Estate? What makes BNPPRE different to other property companies? What experience have you had in the property industry?"
Graduate, Leeds
"Name a time you demonstrated leadership. Why should we hire you? Why do you want to work for us as opposed to our competitors?"
Graduate, London
"I was asked about why I wanted to get into surveying, what made me study a real estate post graduate having done an undergraduate degree in a very different subject (although my English degree does come in useful every so often), my previous work experience and why I would be the best candidate for the job."
Graduate, Birmingham
