“Let your personality shine through when you’re applying. Diageo want to know about you and your past experiences, but also what you’ll bring to the company when you get here, so don’t shy away from being your best self.”
“Just be yourself and let your real personality shine through. We are all such different and unique individuals and Diageo gives us the chance to do that – be yourself! If you want to grow your career and sell great brands, then apply here. You will not regret it.”
“Try and think big about ideas of what you would like to bring to the company and what interests you about the brands. As long as you are confident, approachable and enthusiastic then that is what will shine through.”
“Character really is everything and Diageo want to get to know the real you so trust your gut, try not to overthink your answers and make sure you turn off your notifications!”
“Don’t be afraid to be bold in your answers. Diageo values diverse people and perspectives, so being able to express your own point of view will make you stand out from the crowd.”
“When doing the video interview, the trick is to stay calm and relax, as that way you’ll showcase your best self.”
“Find your reason why. Make sure you know why you want to work for Diageo and why Diageo should choose you, whilst Diageo is a global leader in beverage and alcohol with some incredible brands, it can’t be your only reason why. For example, finding a company that aligned with my beliefs was really important to me.”
“My top career tips for students and graduates would be to not stress but instead to relax and be yourself. Purpose is an important concept within Diageo and bringing your authentic self to the assessment centre is the best way for you (and the company) to work out if you’re a good fit!”
“Diageo are looking to find out who you are rather than what you know. Be yourself, because ultimately the assessment day is the best opportunity for you to find out about Diageo, as well as for Diageo to find out about you.”
