    The interview will take about 30-45 minutes and the questions are mainly behavioural (e.g. tell us about a time you took initiative to solve a problem).
    You can prepare for the interview by thinking of relevant examples to talk about from your degree (e.g. group projects), part-time work, volunteering etc which reflect your teamwork, initiative, customer service and problem-solving skills.
