    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2020 bei University of Cambridge (Cambridge, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I submitted my application via email to Corpus Christi and they responded about one week after the closing date, right before the holidays. From there, we scheduled an "IT skills test" for after the holidays, on a Tuesday, It was just a mail merge saved as a PDF on a flash drive, then composing an email. Then, they narrowed it down to the final four for a forty-minute panel interview. Everyone on the panel was very friendly and professional, and their questions became more and more in-depth as the interview went on. It went from "tell us about your relevant experience" to "here's a difficult scenario, how do you deal with it?" Overall, a very pleasant experience despite a disappointing outcome.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2019 bei University of Cambridge (Cambridge, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online and a few days later I was invited for an interview.

    Upon my arrival I was to request for the HR Administrator who came to collect me from the reception, she took my passport and made a photocopy of it for the right to work document.

    I was then taken to a room where I was given 4 Administrative tasks to complete

    1. Calculate the hours on 3 timesheets
    2. A payroll calculation which was very confusing given the instructions were not clear
    3. Send an email to someone to request information needed to prepare a temporary workers agreement
    4. Rank scenarios in order of their importance, this would then be taken in with me to the interview room

    After 30 minutes I was taken in to the interview room where I was interviewed by 2 women one of which was the HR Manager and the other was the Hub Manager.

    They asked a series of questions and at the end I was able to ask mine. They informed me they were interviewing others but they were expecting to make their decision by the end of the day ideally.

    After this, I was to have an informal chat with the HR Administrator and a fellow colleague, they were friendly however at some points it was a little awkward since there wasn’t much to say. I had a chance to ask them more questions and I was able to find out the role was made available as the HR Administrator was being seconded for 4 years beginning 1st of August.

    I heard back about 3 hours later saying they’d offered the job to someone else and the offer had been accepted.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Informal chat, then two tests: audio typing (for accuracy) then make a pivot table.

    The location and nature of the job didn't match the job description that I had read when applying online.

    After the interview they forgot that they hadn't asked me to do the written test. I had to ask to do it. This made it feel as though they had someone else already lined up for the post.

    The department refused to provide any feedback after they had completed the recruitment process. I was just sent an email. I had taken the whole day off work to attend, and had invested a lot of time in my application.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied Online. I was given one day notice for a Skype interview that I did my best. I could not see video of the panel members, so I spoke to the blank screen, which was not that problematic as sound was clear. I was never informed about outcome of the interview. My follow up email requests to the HR and hiring manager for updates were never responded. I am well aware of interview and hiring process in the UK higher education institutes, majority of them have set high standard of professionalism when it comes to the matter of communication with a candidate. Within this scale Cambridge has fallen very short on this occasion I am afraid. Overall, shocking post interview experience and I felt disrespected.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    It was a very informal interview with 3 academics from the chemistry department. I first gave a short presentation on my previous research, which they followed up with questions. The questions weren't very technical, more about generic background information, steps moving forward, etc. Then it was more of a chat than a formal interview which was quite unexpected.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online on their website, shortly after the post closed heard back via email inviting me to an interview. They said there will be a small test as part of the interview.

    This was one of the several interviews I have had for this organisation over the past few years.

    I arrived at the venue, only to find out the interview was at another venue where the panel took me, and it took quite a while for them to find the room.

    During the interview, the panel focused a lot on why I would NOT be a suitable candidate, and in their opinion I was overqualified, and they seemed to think I would have hard time doing a job that is lower level than me. I explained to them I would not have applied if I was not interested in this position... it seemed as if they had already decided who they were going to pick and they were very biased. This discussion went on throughout the interview and every question followed up with a comment on how each task in the job description would be too easy for me and I would be bored in a week into the job...

    I had an opportunity to show examples of my previous work (portfolio), which seemed to confirm their view on how overqualified I was for the role.

    After this followed the test which I had one hour to complete. During the test several property staff and repairmen came into the room to repair something which distracted me. The test itself was fairly easy.

    The feedback I got was that they thought I was overqualified, over experienced and they took someone with lower set of skills.

    Overall I feel it was the strangest interview I have had and at least they should honour the fact that the candidate has spent time applying for a role they are interested in, made the effort to take time off work, prepared for an interview, only to be told off during the interview that they don't have any hope getting this role.
