Just got some feedback on my assessment day
Found out that I lacked "detail" when answering competency questions which also fell into my report writing and role play (weakest) tests. Thinking back it seems obvious. A lot of things I do lack detail, I always just act quickly without thinking too much before realizing later on if I had did this or that etc it could have been better.
I guess it just takes practice to always think in detail or is it I have a low IQ and too simple minded? lol
Another weak point was my group meeting which I know I failed it. There was this one person in the group who was really loud and talked over us and I couldn't speak above him. Anyway I know I can't blame it on that.
And i failed a maths test. It wasn't a normal maths test though like the usual numerical ones. It was one where they give you new rules which you had to use to calculate things you have never heard of. Probably a more effective testing method as it tests how well an individual can absorb information.
Overall very good feedback and I can start working to improve upon them. Most companies never give feedback so I am glad i got some feedback finally.
(one thing that is confusing me. The person on the phone said that they hope to see me again soon?!? wtf i failed your assessment?)
I can't believe I use to think that by doing a difficult degree at a good uni would make it easy for me to get a job
btw I don't see my degree as something worthless because its not getting me a job yet. I see it as something I did well in and I am proud of myself for achieving it and on the side it will help me get a good job in the future (hopefully).
Well I better get prepping for my telephone interview on Tuesday now. Its with PWC and I am nervous as they tend to want candidates to have a lot of commercial awareness plus it is the THIRD time that I have applied and the first time I have made it past their online tests.
