What about the application process for Spring Weeks?
Rebecca: There are 4 stages in the application process for Spring Weeks:
- CV screening
- Online tests (math + situational judgement)
- Final Interview
Keep in mind that the application process may feature more or less stages depending on the bank you’re applying to.
The Online Tests are usually sent out within a few days of your CV application submission and you usually have 2-3 days to complete them. It is recommended, although not mandatory, to practice before, so you can go online and check for websites that do simulations. I believe Online tests are one of the stages where most candidates fail, so you should always aim to do them at your best and in a quiet space.
The HireVue is a virtual interview where questions pop up on your screen and you have to answer them whilst being recorded. These questions usually include basic motivations and/or competency. When answering you should look at the camera and try to be expressive, as the software assess your movements, the tone of your voice…
During the final interview they don’t expect you to know many technical but they really want to assess your motivation, competency and market awareness so be prepared and practice the answers to those questions (remember though that in the interview seemingly rehearsed answers are valued negatively).
