The recruitment process for ASC’s Corporate Graduate Program involves an initial telephone interview, after which successful applicants will be asked to undertake an assessment. Where possible, these take place in person at an assessment centre. After passing the assessment, applicants will attend a face-to-face interview.
Assessments involve a range of carefully selected tasks. Please ensure you are aware of the location and time of your assessment and follow any dress instructions. Always dress to impress. Ensure you bring a notebook, pen and prepare plenty of questions.
At the assessment, ASC will consider your level of engagement, communication skills and how you interact in a group setting. This can be an intimidating and unusual setting for many people. It’s important to relax as much as possible and let your personality and strengths shine through.
