University Student or Graduate Assessment Experience


Times are changing in the world of graduate recruitment. The likes of EY, Clifford Chance and Deliotte are moving away from using CV’s, grades, school, university and work experience as sifting tools in order to encourage greater diversity. Whilst this makes great strides towards levelling the playing field, it is even more important therefore that when going for internships and graduate roles, you can effectively demonstrate the key ‘soft skills’, cognitive skills and signs of potential that organisations are looking for today. This is exactly what DEMO:U helps you do.

The DEMO:U experience for University students, graduates and post-graduates

Based on our research and experience, we’ve identified behavioural measures that cover almost everything you could be assessed against. If you’re going for a particular role, we’ll link your feedback to that job and the organisation you are applying to at no extra cost.


Here’s what’s included in the experience:

  • Support and feedback from an experienced mentor throughout the process
  • On-line questionnaires covering personality, verbal, numerical and logical ability tests and on-line application form questions.
  • Mock video interviews: 1- and 2- way video interviews and presentation using latest interviewing technology
  • Personalised feedback report and recordings of your interviews


Just some of the anticipated outcomes:

  • Increased understanding of what organisations and recruiters are looking for, and of your strengths, preferences and development areas
  • Increased capability in employability skills (e.g. verbal, non-verbal and written communication, interviewing, presenting)
  • Increased understanding of how you can use work and non-work related experiences to help you become more attractive to employees
  • Increased confidence & decreased anxiety; feeling better prepared with more self-belief to go and get the job you want

Demo:U Experience

The DEMO:U Experience combines independent work (Step A) and face-to-face time with a mentor/coach (Step B) through our video interviewing platform. You will firstly be required to complete:


• A personality questionnaire and at least one Verbal, Numerical or Logical reasoning ability test. You will complete these online through our highly regarded psychometric partner’s platform ( Even if you only complete one of the ability tests, you will have access to all of them and therefore, the opportunity to experience the others at a later date if you wish; as long as you keep the log-in details. There are instructions and practice opportunities in order to support you through it.
• Preparation for a presentation which you will present as part of Step B. More detailed instructions of this will be provided in the introductory email sent upon booking confirmation.
• A recorded 1-way video interview. You will receive a link to a cutting-edge interviewing technology platform ( and you will be required to record your answers to a number or questions posed. Your responses will be in the form of a mix of video and written responses (simulating an ‘application form’ question you might be asked to complete). There are instructions and practice opportunities in order to support you through it.
• Upon completion of these steps, you will be sent an email offering you a number of dates and times to complete Step B.


• Once a date and time has been set between you and a mentor, you will undertake a live interview via video and will receive instant feedback on your answers and how you came across.
• You will then present your presentation and will receive instant feedback on your content and how you came across.
• You will then move into a more exploratory discussion with your mentor about your personality preferences, cognitive ability, career and work environments.
• We will talk you through our insights as to what recruiters and organisations are looking for from ‘career starters’.
