Prepare yourself for leading employers

Pre-screen interview

If you pass the aptitude tests successfully, you will be taken through to the next stage of the application process, which consists of a preliminary interview. Most often carried out over the phone, these interviews are competency-based and normally take around 25 to 30 minutes to complete.

They are a way in which to test your suitability for the role in various aspects such as problem-solving, teamwork and leadership. It is a good idea to take some time to prepare examples from your past when you have demonstrated these skills so as to provide concise, accurate answers quickly during the interview itself.

Hiring manager and team interview

After your pre-screen interview, you will be put through another round of interviews with your hiring manager and various members of the team as well. These can take place either in person at a Citi office location, or virtually via a video call.

These interviews will be more in-depth, so make sure to take time beforehand to do some research and preparation to be best prepared.

Final interview

This final interview is a great opportunity for you to come up with your own questions for Citi. Having a list of industry and company related questions is a good way to show your interest.

Before the interview, ensure you have done your due diligence and research into Citi, its mission statement and its corporate culture, as well as the industry in general. This will be a chance to demonstrate your attention to detail.

Assessment centre

The assessment centre includes a case study, which serves as the basis and outline for the rest of the tasks you will undertake. Ensure you read it carefully, to give yourself the best head start with the following tasks:

The group exercise is a chance to demonstrate your cooperation and communication skills. Teamwork is absolutely necessary and being able to problem-solve and reach conclusions as part of a cohesive unit will be tested at this stage.

You will be expected to work with a group of fellow candidates to complete your assigned tasks. Observers will be there to assess your communication skills, and the way you interact and operate in a group dynamic. As well as making suggestions of your own, be open to others’ ideas and opinions.

The presentation is a way in which the observers can assess how confidently and clearly you are able to articulate yourself in front of others – as well as your body language, tone and how well you are able to engage with an audience.

You will be given a brief to read over and analyse, followed by some time for preparation, before actually delivering your presentation to the observers who will then assess your performance.
