Hi I am going to have my 1st interview with Deloitte Tax group, guess It will focus heavily on competency questions,
This is the first job interview I have in 20 years, and I am so nervous about it, it is very hard earned and I don’t want to spoil it !!
Thanks to wikijob forum, I have collected several competency questions e.g. ? [LIST]
Give me an example of when you have to make a decision (Decision making)
? Give me an example of when you have had to persuade someone. (Communication)
? Give me an example of when you were involved in team work (Social Interaction)
? Give me an example of when you were involved in a multi-task situation. How did you manage it? (Planning and Organising)
? Why are you choosing Deloitte? (Commercial awareness)
? Why are you choosing Audit? (Commercial awareness)
? What interested you the most in the recent news? (Commercial awareness)
? The Steps I go through dealing with change
[*]? Discuss 2 examples of when you’ve been in a team
These questions require me to think hard on my experiences and select best examples to show my competencies, as I have done quite a lot of fundraising activities, student societies and voluntary work, it is really hard to select the perfect example for each question !!
I am so confused now and I am scared that I would select the wrong example for the wrong question !! What should I do? What are the criteria when selecting examples ? My memory is so bad that I forgot almost all the details of the things I have done… and I am panicing now!
Like, If I want to talk about my decision making, should I talk about how I decided to study in my current university or should i talk about how I ended up being a volunteer for a particular organisation??
Moreover, I spent like 6 months looking for jobs after graduation, would they challenge me by the fact that I was not able to find myself a good job asap? like immediately after graduation? How important is that?
