Recruitment process

Tips from Capgemini UK for Students

Capgemini’s recruitment process includes a short application, a digital interview and assessment centre. The digital interview is an opportunity for us to learn more about you and your interest in Capgemini and the area that you have applied to. Therefore, you should expect questions around what Capgemini does, your motivation for joining and specific questions around the role or area that you have applied to. This stage is a pre-recorded set of questions which enables you to interview at a time that works best for you.

Questions may include “Why does this graduate programme or role excite you?” and then role specific questions such as “please share a situation where you have solved a problem using technology?” or what experience do you have with certain technologies.

At an assessment centre, you would take part in a group exercise and a 1-1 interview. In the group exercise you should expect to solve a task as a group and be assessed on strengths such as working well in the team and your involvement in the task which could include leading the group, managing the time, or coming up with ideas. In a group exercise if you don’t contribute, we can’t score you against the criteria we are assessing, so get involved! If you are naturally more outgoing, then bring in quieter members of the group to the conversation.

For the interview you will be asked strengths-based questions around your motivations, skills, strengths, and role suitability. You should prepare for questions such as “What motivates you to get a career in ____?”, or “How will this role play to your strengths?”. This focuses on your future potential rather than experience and it is a good idea to talk about any self-development, activities and interests that might be relevant to the role and demonstrate your strengths.

Interviewers want to get to know you, why you’re passionate about the area you have applied to and why you want to work for their company. Always do your research before attending an interview, you should research the companies’ purpose and values, their social media accounts, and their website. Any information that you can find, and you can then showcase, will help you stand out. You can also talk about any transferrable skills you have such as communication and teamwork, or any communities you’re a part of or areas where you can demonstrate your interests to stand out.

The interview is a two-way street, it’s also your opportunity to make sure it’s right for you! Try and prepare at least 2 questions to ask the interviewers at the end. A good question could be asking about challenges and opportunities they may have faced in their career or what the training and development opportunities are.You could also ask the interviewer “What are the best things about working here and what is the culture like?”. This gives you an opportunity to hear first-hand about the company and area you have applied to and tap into their experience and knowledge.
