Banking Technical Specialist – Financial Services

Hire STEM Women helped me with attending a women in tech event, which is actually where my first interest in Microsoft came from, it was fantastic because it gave me an insight into the company and it really motivated me to apply for them. Having then worked with my coach back and forth to really get my CV up to top-notch I got through the first couple of rounds & the assessment center, honestly I have had more support from them than I have had from university or any sort of company that I’ve gone to for help and I am indebted to them forever, because of their support and their help I have been able to land this job and it has been a dream!

Don’t worry! Most application processes can take a long time, sometimes several months.

If the applications are being run by another company, I’m afraid we aren’t able to check whether you’ve been successful or not.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Dress appropriately for the interview. Do some research on the company culture & environment this will help you to make a good first impression and show that you take the interview seriously, we recommend if you are unsure it is best to keep it professional.

Step 4

Arriving late can leave a poor impression & make the interview question your reliability, so make sure you are on time for the interview, if you are unsure of the location it is best to plan your journey in advance and take a trip early to familiarise yourself with the location, if you are doing virtual interviews make sure you have good connection and log in 15 mins before hand to avoid any technical problems. If in the instance you are experiencing technical glitches let the interviewer know so that they are well prepared and have a back up in which you can use an alternative way to do the interview such as via your phone or download the communication software on your phone.

Step 5

Be yourself and be honest. Don't try to be someone you're not or give answers that you think the interviewer wants to hear. Instead, be honest and authentic, and focus on highlighting your strengths and experience.
