Series of applications and interviews
Graduate, Brisbane
The interview was amazing. We talked about both our passions and how GHD can help me grow and bring me on an adventure.

There was a very long wait between submitting my application and getting the call for the interview, I'd forgotten that I had submitted the application! Interview was a 2 on 1 discussion and I received a call later letting me know that I had gotten the job. I think the process has changed recently however.
Graduate, Sydney
There was an initial application, video interview, then in person interview for the graduate roles.
Graduate, Sydney
Online application then next round was a recorded video interview (can be done anytime) then a face to face interview.
Graduate, Brisbane
The hiring process at GHD is very similar to all the other companies in the industry. There is an initial application followed by a video interview then a face-to-face interview. It was typical enough, yet the video interview can be quite challenging.
Graduate, Sydney
Online application, video interview, interview, offer
Graduate, Brisbane
First online tests (number, logic, behavioural based) then phone interview (approx. 5-10 min, fairly casual) and last face-to-face interview (approx. 1 hour). The turnaround time was very good. I received my offer soon after my face-to-face interview. Other offers I received for other graduate positions took a lot longer (1-2 months). The HR team were pretty efficient in processing my application.
Graduate, Sydney
The interview process and assessment was fairly standard
Graduate, Sydney
Application, interview, offer.
Graduate, Sydney
Seems to be an intensive focus on extraversion.
Graduate
Weren't any assessments, just a couple of rounds of interview. As I applied to a different state to the one I was in the interviews were all though a web camera.
Graduate, Sydney/ Brisbane
There were many stages, which was a little annoying but understandable. Having to give long answers to questions was more annoying than shorter responses.
Graduate, Sydney
What questions were you asked in your interviews?
Why engineering, tell us about yourself. Pretty generic questions.
Graduate, Brisbane
Why did you want to get good marks at uni?
Graduate, Brisbane

A few questions via a video recording system, generally in regards to culture, and consulting. A face to face interview to further identify your education history and personality, particularly in specialized fields
Graduate, Brisbane
A few about 'how I act in the workplace', as well of examples of lateral thinking, teamwork and leadership.
Graduate, Sydney
Why Civil Engineering and not another discipline? What is your passion etc. What do you want to gain from GHD...
Midlevel, Sydney
Pretty standard interview questions. About myself, what I had studied and past experiences. It was very conversational however I think that was my now boss' attitude to interviewing (which is good) rather then how the company interviews.
Graduate, Sydney
Interests, relevant areas of study
Graduate, Sydney
Understanding of a consultancy. Favourite subjects.
Graduate, Brisbane
I think I asked about the culture and what kind of work I would be doing and what career opportunities separate GHD from its competitors.

Questions were mainly about talking a bit about yourself, past experience and why you want to work at GHD. Need to show you are interested and capable (with examples). Also spent time talking about what you do outside of work.
Graduate, Sydney
Experience and long-term goal; ambitions in life.
Graduate, Sydney
Behavioural and situational questions
Graduate, Sydney
They asked about what I studied, what my favourite aspects of my degree where. They also asked me straight up if i was happy to travel, work remotely and to be on site most of my time so it was not a surprise when I started work.
Graduate, Sydney/ Brisbane
Why do you want this job? What experience do you have? Why GHD? Tell us about an experience you have had in a team where things didn't go to plan, how did you help to fix this? Bring in a work sample and discuss it.
Graduate, Sydney
Strengths and weaknesses, company values, overview of yourself

I was asked about my interests, previous work experience, my research and studies and what I see myself doing in the near and far future.
Graduate, Melbourne
Questions about teamwork, problem solving, conflict resolution and technical experience.
Graduate, Sydney
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
First, you need to find an area of the company you wish to start your career in. Then, research what GHD are doing in that space and where they are heading. See if your personal knowledge goals align with that industry and showcase how your personal skills and interest can assist GHD in moving forward into the future.
Midlevel, Sydney
Relax and hold the discussion. Practice generic interview question to prepare.
Graduate, Brisbane
It's not about what you know or your knowledge base, it's more about your attitude and personality.
Graduate, Brisbane
Be honest and show your passions
Graduate, Toowoomba
research the company, be positive and truthful
Graduate, Brisbane
Be yourself, know what you want and who you are. Stay relaxed - our recruiters and managers interviewing are there to get to know you and help you succeed in the interview. I don't think they want you to fall short.
Graduate, Brisbane
Don't be too stressed and be genuine. My interview went badly (was via skype/webex and connection failed 3 times) and i still got an offer based on the answers i provided
Graduate, Sydney
Do research regarding consultants - know what they offer and how they operate
Graduate, Brisbane
Its favourable to have a connection at the company. If you do not, don't despair. Refer to GHD values and consider how they apply to yourself. GHD is progressive and culturally diverse. As well, GHD preaches technical excellence and favours high achievers.
Graduate, Sydney
Be yourself. And truly live your passion.
Midlevel, Sydney
Get to know the company and team you are applying for. Otherwise it's a pretty standard process
Graduate, Sydney
Try to be very personable in a video interview, showing a personality is really important in a job where you have to sell work to clients.
Graduate, Sydney
Understand what the company does and what the consultancy environment is like.
Graduate, Brisbane
For the video interview have a think about the kinds of questions that might be asked and prepare some responses. For the face to face interview try to be yourself and try not to be too nervous.
Graduate, Sydney
The two main things you need to show are that you are interested/passionate for the job and you are capable/have the required skills. Have examples ready from past jobs, uni to use during the interview. You might get questions along the lines as "tell me a time you dealt with conflict and how did you overcome it - with examples". Also talk about stuff you do on your weekends to show you are an all rounder - help the interviewers remember you.
Graduate, Sydney
Just be yourself and prepare before the interview. Know a bit about the company.
Graduate, Sydney
Show them communication.
Graduate
Don't over prepare, just be yourself. It is not always about marks and achievements, it also about you as a person. Also just accept you will be the best dressed person in the interview. You are being hired by engineers.
Graduate, Sydney/ Brisbane
Practical experience on your resume is helpful. Read about the company and the kind of projects they are involved in in your discipline. Have questions you'd like to ask
Graduate, Sydney
Strong time management including competing priority prioritising
