Interviews for RBC positions can be completed via telephone, video conferencing, or in person. These are usually a combination of motivational and competency-based questions, as well as technical questions if the role needs it.
In the motivational questions, you might be asked about your future career aspirations, why you want to work at RBC and what you want to learn. These questions are looking for enthusiasm and research – specific things about what made you apply for the role.
You might find questions such as:
- “Why do you want to work for RBC?”
- “Where do you see yourself in five years?”
- “What are your strengths?”
- “What are your weaknesses?”
With these questions it is important to offer unique answers, with reference to specific information about the position that interests you. Think about what you want to achieve and how this specific role can help you get there (through qualifications or experience).
In the competency-based questions, you will be asked to provide examples of your soft skills and abilities like teamwork and communication. Recruiters want specifics here, so before the interview think about the competencies that the role needs.
These can usually be found in the job description. If you can think of at least one good example from either your work experience or extra-curricular activities for these competencies, you can demonstrate in detail the information that an RBC recruiter is looking for.
Some questions you might face in the RBC interview about competencies include:
- “Tell me about a time you successfully overcame a challenge”
- “Describe a time where you were in charge of a team”
- “Tell me about a time when something you tried to achieve did not work”
You might find it useful to think of these examples and describe them using the STAR mnemonic (Situation, Task, Action, Result) to give a full description with all the necessary details.
There are often other questions that might focus on your academic achievement, and your knowledge about the wider financial market.
Remember, an interview should be a two-way discussion, so there will be time for you to ask questions too. Use the information about the role and the business that you have discovered in your research to come up with some interesting and thoughtful questions to ask.
