Mock interview?

free-postitnoteGraduate recruitment specialist, Rare Recruitment, is currently offering free mock interviews for undergraduates interested in a career in Banking and Finance.

This is part of a new social research project we are conducting looking into language and unconscious bias in graduate recruitment.

The Mock Interview
The mock interview will last for approximately 45 minutes and it will be a 1-1 session with Andrew Osayemi. Andrew traded FX for RBS in both London and New York for five years. Andrew was a market maker of FX FWDs and Short-End European Interest Rare Derivatives to Corporate, Hedge fund and Inter-bank counter-parties. In his current role, Andrew focuses on helping Rare candidates to achieve their full potential and gain highly competitive roles with Rare’s clients. He works with candidates in one-on-one sessions and in groups to expand their knowledge of IB and markets.

As part of the mock interview, you will get specific feedback on their strengths and weaknesses. You can also ask Andrew for tips on how to enhance your commercial awareness and feedback on how you come across in interview. Participating in the project will also give you the opportunity to be part of a project aiming for wider social change in the area of unconscious bias.

The Project
At Rare, we believe that excellence comes in many different forms and we will be using the software we develop in order to try and bring about a social change. In order to create our software, we require lots of clips of different people speaking in a mock interview setting. After our analysis of the footage, short clips of participants, of around one minute, may feature in the software.

The end product of our research will hopefully inform software which will be shared with Rare internally and with Rare’s partner organisations who have an interest in eliminating unconscious bias in graduate recruitment (currently, Herbert Smith Freehills, Deloitte, Freshfields, Allen & Overy and Clifford Chance).

The mock interviews will be held on Wednesday 2–Saturday 5 August 2017. Travel expenses can be reimbursed.
