Our Recruiting Process
Research, research, research
Look on the Willis website and familiarize yourself with what we do. We do not expect you to be an expert in insurance brokerage but you should have a general understanding of our industry, what we do and how we do it.
Think about yourself
We want to know what unique skills you can bring to the role. Think through your work experience and the skills and interests you’ve developed at university and how these relate to the job and area of work. Why are you interested in the GDP? Why do you think you are a good fit for the program?
We will expect you to demonstrate a strong interest in Willis and the program. Utilize the research you’ve already done to think of at least three questions to ask about Willis as an employer, and three questions about the program itself. You can write these down to take into the interview as a reminder.
If you still have access to your university's careers service, see if you can book a mock interview or what might be part of the interview day.
Plan your day
You only get one chance to make a first impression. Plan for your interview day in fine detail. It will help you relax and shows employers that you are organized and committed. Dress appropriately; you can’t go wrong with a traditional business suit. Plan how to get to the location where the interview will take place. Be on time. Print out a fresh copy of your resume/CV and take it with you.
Be in control of yourself in the interview
It’s natural to be nervous in an interview. When you are in the interview, remember that it’s fine to pause before responding to questions to gather your thoughts, and if you’re unsure about a question it’s also fine to ask for clarification.
Stay professional to the end
Although it can be tempting to run screaming from a bad interview or skip joyously from a good one, recruiters will expect to you to be professional throughout the time you're meeting with them, including after you’ve left the interview room itself.
If you’re shown around the office or have the chance to chat with former graduates, remember that their feedback may count towards the organization’s overall evaluation of you, so don’t say or do anything that you wouldn’t in a formal interview situation

Be yourself. We want to get to know the real you.
