    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at First Derivatives.

    Interview

    They were very prompt responding to my application. A phone interview was organised. A quick 10 minute chat about my CV (cross-checking my university grades, etc), what I knew about their company, what I would bring to it.

    Know your stuff about their company!! You can download the booklet on their website. Good luck! :)
