It was quite an involved process with more steps than expected, though upon reflecting this promotes a good workplace culture as each applicant is appropriately screened.

At the time I came through there was a video interview, where you answer several questions on a video you submit to the company. This was followed by technical and behavioural interviews at the office.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very person orientated. Not too much on your skill level as they train you.
Graduate, Auckland
The interview process has drastically changed from two years ago. When I did it I was with 20 other candidates and we were split into 6 groups and given a "customer" to make a lego structure to test teamwork and communication. We also had interviews questions with some managers.

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
To be yourself and answer honestly. They're not interviewing you to trick you, they are seeing if you would be a good fit for the company and visa versa.

Read up MYOB and watch the videos (by employees and clients). It lets you get a real feel for the company and ascertain if it's appropriate for you. Think about how you would answer typical behavioural questions - practise those verbally. Think about your journey to becoming a developer - why did you make that change? What is meaningful about coding for you?
