    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK in October 2017.

    Interview

    Application process was simple and easy. Took around 1 month which was standard but kept up to date through emails and through the site which was good. The interview which was a competency based was very intense meaning experience was key in answering the questions. Even though it was intense both interviewers were fantastic and I was made to feel completely at ease, prompted as to when I should elaborate further on the questions I was answering. As I have had many interviews before I can easily say that this is one of the best interviews I have had.
