I have recently applied for the PR graduate scheme.
First I got a telephone interview. The lady was very rude and asked a few personal questions but I understand this as it is a PR role.
Then I was invited to the AC which had 1 group exercise, 1 personality test, 1 something i cannot remember, 1 interview and a so called “merry go round”.
During the group exercise there were people from many different countries. The case study was based on lady whose husband has died due to taking one of your clients energy drinks. And the case study asks you to do a financial analysis of how this law suit will impact the company. And make an arrangement with the lady and how to hide it from the media. As the PR representative it is your duty to come up with a way to find how to keep this hidden from the media.
Perosnality test was very personal. There were questions like how many hours i sleep during the day and almost reached the stage of asking me about JT.
In the something i cannot remember part, I was required to talk with their represenatives in india and they had a very strong accent. Like “huttututtuttu butter goo”,
