    Hi,

    Was applying for placements recently got one back and got through the telepone interview and now have an interview, but there is several different roles and areas I can choose. I'm doing a BSc in Networking and Systems support just about to get my degree, so I'm wanting something similar to this role was thinking like 1st line or similar, let me know what you's think of the position and how relevant it is:

    Seems ok to me, third line support and experiance of server systems? Do you have that experiance? Apply anyway. Just get yourself some virtual stuff and play around with server trials etc

    Best advice above. Its best to apply for as many jobs as you can and hopefully you'll get one or two bites. What ever you do, don't get disheartened if you don't here back or get rejected. Its a terrible market right now but there are still opportunities out there for motivated people. Cheers, James

    Panel Interview, Group Task, Presentation - something along those lines. Good luck. e.g. Ability to sell yourself, work with others and presenting information well.

    Thanks for the reply. Got an email from them confirming the date, which is sometime next week :D and says it will consist of:
    A behavioural interview and a Group Discussion. Any idea on the types of questions in the behavioural interview?

    Just thought I'd keep you's all updated. Had the interview, consisted of a group activity which was fine and the interview which went pretty good. Dont know what my chances are like as there is only 1 position and lots of candidates, so time will tell. They said they would let me know within a week, so should find out before Wednesday and let all you know, wish me luck :D!
