Sounds interesting and exciting. Thanks for giving me some insight into the process. As a foreigner, who'd like to get some international experience, it's good to learn some lessons from those who are currently going through the throes of job hunting. Hope you got through with the June 6th interview. That sounds like a great opportunity.

That reminds me of some of the stranger stories I heard about an Oxbridge candidate who was made to do the interview with one assessor in front of him and one sitting directly behind. The candidate lost his temper and moved the chair so that he could see whom he was talking to. His was then offered a place for showing some courage – or something like that – but was so enraged by this that he refused it. I gather that this was some time ago, I don't know if many companies still have these role plaing games as part of their selection process.

This seems a shame because at any rate it certainly makes it more exciting for the interviewer!

Good luck - sounds like a pretty rigorous selection process.

I'm dreadful at these. I once had one with a balloon debate in it - where you have to argue to stay in the balloon. I jumped out. The assessors were shocked. But that's what my character would have done.

I didn't get the job though. So don't recommend it.

That's really tough Stephen, I'd be lost without my computer (who as the second man in my life is called marvin).

Good luck with it all. Along with my laptop with all my uni work failing, I'm dealing with similar experiences.
