diversIT x Capgemini: Acing the Assessment Centre

  3/9 This Thursday at 7pm, we're tackling one of the most common practices in IT recruitment - assessment centres! Together with Capgemini, a leading IT employer, we're running a mock assessment centre and workshop to give you the skills and know-how to ace your next assessment centre. Especially for Big Four and large tech employers like Capgemini, assessment centres are ubiquitous. In this session, you'll break out into groups, work together on a case and present your solutions- just like you would when interviewing with a consulting firm!

If you want the chance to hear from eight of Capgemini's finest, then get in quick - there's limited spots available!
