How to succeed in a non-medical interview
The interview is the final step between you and your chosen career.
It is notoriously where most candidates fail to perform. This is often because of a lack of familiarity with the process. A non-medical interview is very different to a medical interview. It can encompass: case studies, presentations, aptitude tests, formal quantitative tests, group exercises and even an essay. These can occur over several stages. You need to be prepared for all of them.
After optimising your non-medical CV (which each candidate will be required to submit in advance) and having been selected for interview, this workshop will help you to avoid common pitfalls. We have experts who have successfully been through the process as a doctor and now interview and hire new graduates and experienced strategy consultants on a weekly basis.
