6 tips on how stand out at an assessment centre

Group interviews can be intimidating, but don’t worry, we are here to help!

Group interviews can be intimidating, especially when you're competing against multiple candidates for the same position. However, with the right preparation and approach, you can set yourself apart from the competition and increase your chances of landing the job. Here are a few tips on how to stand out at in a PwC assessment centre:
1. Research us:
Before the interview, take the time to research our mission, values, and culture. This will not only help you understand what we are looking for in a candidate, but it will also give you a sense of how you can align your own skills and experiences with our needs.
2. Be prepared to speak up:
In a group interview, it's easy to blend in and get lost in the crowd. However, if you want to stand out, you'll need to be prepared to speak up and share your thoughts and ideas. This doesn't mean talking over others or dominating the conversation, but rather being confident and assertive when you have something valuable to add.
3. Show your enthusiasm:
We are looking for candidates who are genuinely excited about the opportunity to work for their company. Be sure to express your enthusiasm for the role and the specific team during the interview. Show that you have put thought into why you would be a good fit and how you can contribute to the team’s success.
4. Ask thoughtful questions:
Asking thoughtful and insightful questions during the interview will demonstrate your interest in the team and the role. It will also show that you've done your research and are genuinely interested in our goals and values.
5. Show your skills:
In a group interview, you can also stand out by showing your skills. Our group interviews include a group case study, so take the lead and show your problem-solving, leadership or teamwork skills. We are a community of solvers after all. 
6. Be confident and authentic:
Confidence is key in any interview, but it's especially important in a group setting. Be yourself and let your personality shine through. Authenticity is key, and the interviewer will appreciate that you are not trying to be someone you are not.
In conclusion, standing out in a group interview requires a combination of research, preparation, and assertiveness. By being confident and enthusiastic, asking thoughtful questions, and showing your skills and value, you can increase your chances of landing the job. Remember to be authentic and let your personality shine through. Remember, your unique skills have gotten you this far, so we want to see them in practice!
