e tray is alright.
this is how my day went.
I first went into the office being the first one there. All other candidates came one by one and we were all taken to this room with laptops on desks.
Our first task was to look at information and reply back to emails. This task was 1 hour long. The information was broken down into 3 folders. One was about your own organisation, the other was about Trafford Lea’s organisation and the last folder was about the situation facing the business.
My advice will be to first drag the bottom task bar to the left hand side and open up all documents from the first folder and keep them opened as it will save time when you are trying to refer back to it.
Also spend the first 10 mins reading all the info. Skim read it as there are a lot of information. Then spend the rest of the time answering the emails.
Watch out though as when answering emails, you will always need to refer back to the information given. Also read the job description of trafford lea’s staff as there are two questions which are there to trick you.
Then you go on to the written exercise. You are given 40 mins to write a recommendation about which acquisition trafford lea should take. Spend 5 mins reading the info, then spend 25mins writing your answer, then spend 10 mins looking over for spelling and grammar mistakes.
I say this because in order to pass this part, you need to be really accurate in the way you write and spell. 3 spelling mistakes and you are out of the game. Structure wise, I did this:
I would recommend xxxx because …
However there are also weaknesses in which xxx can improve on (and talk about how your company can help them)
There other two options also have strengths because…
I would therefore like to clarify my recommendation as being xxxx.
Something along those lines should do the job. Good luck with your e tray and hope you pass. If you need anything else, then just ask. I have my first interview tomorrow . Pray for me x
