Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Openreach in May 2022

Interview

I applied over a month ago via the company website after seeing the role advertised on their LinkedIn page. I was then invited to an interview with two senior members of the team. The interview lasted 55 minutes out of 60 (the last 5 felt more like small talk) and consisted of a series of questions ranging from what improvements need to be made to their website and social media profiles to what would I consider the biggest challenges facing the PR Industry. Prior to the interview I was told by the person overseeing the recruitment process that they were likely to ask me 3 specific questions in addition to the ones they'll be using via the STAR method to assess my suitability for the role and that I should have answers ready for these 3 questions however, during the interview they didn't appear to have asked the 3 additional questions I had been told to prep for. After the interview I was told that I should hear from them by the end of the week. Its now the of following week and I haven't heard anything despite emailing them twice which is disappointing and disrespectful considering how intense the interview process was. I can only presume if and when I do hear back from them, they'll likely say something like I was good at my interview but they're going with a candidate who has done the role before (same old story). This has put me off applying to them in the future.

Interview Questions
  • What do you think are the challenges facing the public relations industry What stood out to you from looking at our website and social media accounts What motivates you How do you liked to be managed
