"Research the company (e.g. key facts, position in the market, recent bid wins, case studies, key moves from the boards, visions, goals, etc.). Research the role you wish to apply for and demonstrate why that role would suit you against your strengths. Understand all aspects of your past experience relating to that role and to find out if you have the skill set required for that role."

"I would say that the most important thing in the interview is to show a real interest and desire to work for the company. As preparation, it is a good idea to make a question and answer sheet of expected questions; however, it is important not to come across impersonal and as if you are reading off a sheet of paper."
Intern, London
"It is vital to know about recent transactions/deals etc and generally have a good understanding of the industry. Also think about situations where it has been necessary to demonstrate the ability to be a member of a team and or a leader, etc."
Intern, London
"The application procedure is tough and roughly 20 people were selected from approximately 650 applicants. Therefore preparation for the interviews is massively important in knowing how to deal with the questions that are asked of you. To be able to answer a vast range of questions about the company, industry and personal skills will put you in a great position to secure the internship."
