Interview: Tips & Advice

2014

"My advice for candidates is to always remain calm. The situation may appear daunting, but it's never as big a deal as you make it in your head. The more relaxed and comfortable you are, the better impression you will give."
Graduate, Nottingham
"I would advise candidates to do some numerical ability reviews, and research what the company does and what they trade in."
Graduate, Nottingham
"My advice is to find an example of a business case study online and do it, and preferably find some notes on how the solution should be presented; try and practise this as much as possible before the interview."
Graduate, Nottingham
"My best advice to candidates is that they should ask the interviewer questions, such as how they got where they are, and what they think of the company."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Candidates should thoroughly research Capital One and have a good set of answers for competency questions."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Research the company; any awards won, goals, values, company mission, and go over your CV and be prepared to elaborate on any part. Have an outline or idea of what your aims for the future are. If you don't know the answers to a question then don’t make it up, and ask the interviewer’s point of view or for advice."
Graduate, Nottingham
"Be confident with your answers, ensure they are thought through and articulate them well. Plus, candidates should have basic algebra and numeric skills."
Marketing, Graduate, Nottingham
"Graduates should be numerically minded, although a numerical degree is definitely not required. In the case studies, talk through every thought process and make sure you keep going with ideas rather than just stopping after the first thing."
Graduate, Nottingham
