Has anybody else applied for this scheme? I have a telephone interview for it this afternoon, and was wondering if anybody else was at the same stage?

    In the job description it says you need to speak 3 languages? Is this strictly true? Everyone that's been successful, do you all speak 3 languages fluently? I only have English and don't want to apply if it will be pointless!

    I think that by now we should have already been contacted so in case that we haven't chances are very low...

    Hi Esther I hope you got the job....anyways am jst starting my own process and I would love to get all the necessary informations such as the kinda questions being asked right from the online inductive reasoning test to the face to face interview and yes I also applied for HR. Thanks

    Hi Tunde I didnt get the International graduate programme although I got offered a place in Nigerian Breweries Instead but I got a job offer at Shell at the time. I made it to the assessment center in Amsterdam so I might be able to help. The Online inductive reasoning varies yearly cos mine was SHL based... the telephone interview is to know more about you, why you applied for the HGP,, what you know about the brewing industry, why you applied for HR, ... etc. the face to face interview is competency based questions..etc. all the best

    Hey guys, @IGP123 I got my email yesterday. I guess they will give feedback this week or next. I know how anxious you must feel, stay positive. :)

    • IGPhi

    Hi Ronnie, when did you get your email? Did anyone get a rejection email yet? I applied for finance and still haven't heard from them :(

  • 7 May 2013 - 2:20pm
    • Ronnie88

    Hi guys, I just came across this forum and I'm so excited I found it. I applied for the IGP Finance programme and just got my email that I have been invited for the AC on the 26th -27th of June. Looking forward to meeting you all. :)

    Congrats, Elena!AlL the best for the coming AS. Did they mention which one of the assessment centers you are attending?

  • 6 May 2013 - 3:59pm
    • Elena1234

    Btw I created a facebook group as well to make communication a bit easier among us. It's open access, so join!

  • 6 May 2013 - 2:37pm
    • Elena1234

    Yes!! Just got notified that I passed the face to face interview =) However, the sentence saying that the A/C "brings together the best applicants globally to compete for the limited places in the 2013 HEINEKEN International Graduate Programme" kinda freaks me out a bit - does anyone have any idea of how many candidates are going to attend and how many places are available for the programme? I sense this is going to be harder than I expected :/

    • Marcus854

    They told me that we could expect to start receiving invitations for the AC by the 1st of May

  • 25 April 2013 - 7:00am
    • Cmega123

    Did my interview on the 16th. They said i would get feedback in May. Keeping my fingers crossed. Goodluck pals.

    • Elena1234

    Just did my face to face interview for corporate relations. Very smooth and relaxed :) Guess it will takes them ages to give the results, they are sooo slow at this, haha. Anyone knows anything about the assessment centre and what to expect?

  • 18 April 2013 - 5:35pm
    • Kate1234

    Hi guys, did any of you get any feedback from the face-to-face interview? Please let us know if you do, I asked them but they were pretty vague about the times... Thanks and fingers crossed!

    Thanks for your question, @esther89! My face to face interview went pretty well to be honest. I was interviewed by an employee and an HR manager but they were really nice and made sure I felt comfortable the whole time. They started asking me about my recent experience (my tasks, my responsibilities, projects, etc.) and from there they went deeper and deeper in order to see specific examples of "best team behaviours". They were also interested in more technical stuff: recruitment and selection techniques, motivation of employees, conflict solving...
    Don't feel stressed! If you know your CV by heart and have refreshed your knowledge about your field (HR, Finance or whatever you're applying for), it should go smoothly. Basically they're going to be discussing about your life, and you're the greatest expert about it, right? :)

    And by the way, GraduateSeekingJob, you are talking about the face to face interview, right? Not the telephone interview.

  • 11 April 2013 - 1:26am
    • GraduateSeekingJob

    Yes, I'm talking about the face to face interview. How long has is taken others to hear back about the result of their face to face interview? Good luck everyone!

    Thanks a lot, GraduateSeekingJob!

    Good luck everyone!
