Written, Psychometric testing, One day of verbal, group and written assessment, interview for position
First step: online application - fairly typical Second step: online psychometric test Third: group assessment centre (run by recruitment company) - at the assessment centre there is a written exercise, a group discussion exercise and a one-on-one behavioural interview (general questions, tell us about a time when you xxx") Fourth: panel interview (two of my current supervisors, one of the members of the graduate management team)
The recruitment process required online statement; psychometric test; assessment centre; final interview. While the process is as long as other graduate programs, the recruitment team have a strong interest in good customer service and building a good relationship.
Online application, online aptitude test, external assessment centre process (including a writing task, group discussion and one-on-one interview) and another interview with managers and graduate recruitment.
There was a written application stage followed by psychometric testing, this was then followed by a half day group assessment that included a written activity, group activity and interview with the recruiting company. If you made it through the first 3 stages, then you would go on to have a final interview with DELWP/ DEDJTR staff members.
Stage 1 - Written Application - personal details and had to answer 3 questions Stage 2 - An Aptitude Test - answer as many questions as possible in 30 minutes from different categories e.g. mathematical, problem solving etc. Stage 3 - Assessment Center - Involves 3 activities - A group task (you will be given background information on an issue and then you will have to discuss as a group), a written task (you will be given another separate issue in which you have to outlay answers to questions they give you within the time limit) and an individual interview (Use the STAR technique)! Stage 4 - Interview with group who will possibly take you on (again Use the STAR technique), examples don't necessarily have to be from that particular work area - think of extra curricular activities, volunteering, other jobs, uni etc.
Graduate, Hamilton (now)/ Inverleigh (in 2017)
1. Application 2. Psychometric testing 3. Assessment Centre (Behavior interview, team exercise, writing exercise) 4. DELWP Interview
1) Resume and KSC. Psychometric test, Assessment centre day (Interview, writing task and group task) and final panel interview.
Intense. Involved a resume, assessment centre with group work, written work and an individual interview, a psychometric test and a panel interview.
The Science Graduate Program recruitment process is quite long and intensive, beginning in July with online applications, followed by online psychometric testing. The assessment centre stage comes next and includes tasks on teamwork and writing skills along with a behavioural interview, if successful there, the final panel interview then takes place in October.
Was a great interview process. They explained everything very detailed
Rigorous - the graduate program recruitment process is very long and has a number of steps where you have to attend in person.
Stressful! I still question the legitimacy of aptitude tests. process went like this: Online application > aptitude test > assessment centre (group task, writing task, personality interview) > interview
1. Application - KSQ and resume 2. Online tests 3. Assessment Centre 4. Panel Interview
Multistage process to cull applicants from approximately 700 down to 12. Stage 1: Written Application (Questions) & Resume Stage 2: Online psychometric tests Stage 3: Assessment Centers (Written test, group task, individual interview) Stage 4: Final Interview
Intense, lots of process similar to all graduate programs. But fair at interview stage with interviewees wanting you to succeed
I started via the Science Graduate Program with DELWP - long process but very worthwhile
