I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Croydon, England, England) in Aug 2018

Interview

My interview was at the Croydon office for Graduate Highways Engineer. The office has a friendly and welcoming environment. The interview consisted of 6 competency-based questions ("Tell me about a time when you ___") and a Highway technical question. I would highly recommend revising all the questions presented on Glassdoor as that enabled me to be more prepared for some of the questions asked. Also do some research on the company, remember your experiences thoroughly and prepare questions to ask at the start and end of the interview.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time when you were asked to change your plan/ method mid-project. How did you react?
