    CoolroeMan can i ask what day you've been called? I got called for Monday but it looks like i won't be able to make it.

    Hoping its not the only day they're doing it.

    I'm on Monday morning also. I know one other who's up at the same time.

    I'm Monday afternoon, would love to know what to expect from the case study


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    I am on Tuesday afternoon. I rang publicjobs too and they said there is nothing else they can tell me/us about the exam.

    Surely it will be accountancy/finance based though or what do you think? Like is there a need to brush up on ratios and formulas etc.? I am a little out of practice so am a little concerned.....

    Wouldn´t imagine it will be too taxing but i suppose it wouldn´t hurt to brush up.

    What time do the afternoon sessions start?


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    Mine is at 13.45 on the Tuesday. I am sure if you give them a shout they will let ya swap

    Well I was thinking if they are using it as part of the process to trim down numbers it will surely be a little challenging?

    Has anyone had any information on what case study may be on? Can't imagine auditing standards been examined. I'm in on Monday afternoon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    Anyone hear how today's tests went then?

    Very accountancy/auditing heavy or more just general business?!


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    How did everyone get on yesterday?

    Made it to interview. Must have done better than i thought.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    Crap - I haven't heard a thing :(

    Kinda knew I wouldn't but still....

    How did they inform you?


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    Just checked my publicjobs account and I did indeed get called! I am a happy wemmet again :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 Egghead12


    Ive been called for interview too.

    They emailed to the public jobs.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19 Poles


    Got through also.

    I wonder are they interviewing all who did the case study. Hmm


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 Egghead12


    No don't think so. I know two people took the case study but didn't get called for interview.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,710 ✭✭✭billyhead


    Got called to the interview aswell. For anyone who did not get an e-mail message just log into the Public Jobs portal and check your messages to verify your results from the case study

    Got the call myself.

    So some didn't? Thought they might call the lot in. Well commiserations to those who didn't make it to the interview stage this time, and congrats to those who did.

    Not yet been a bit busy. Had a brief glance through it and i did one like it before. Fairly exhaustive alright.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    That is what I thought, same as the one for AO role like

    But there is a load more stuff about skills/competencies in it that I didn't see initially :(

    Yes, at the bottom. You have to fill it ALL in. (it says make sure you complete part 2 or something, which is the competencies etc.)


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    Oh so nearly finished that bloody form....

    Almost too quiet....


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 wemmet


    Just had my interview, was pretty tough! Wouldn't be feeling too confident :(

    Has anyone else had theirs yet?


  • Registered Users Posts: 19 Poles


    Had my interview last week.
    It went OK but thought it was tough enough.
    They mentioned we might hear by Friday.

    Given the fact that they are looking to fill 17 places or whatever I am still giving myself some chance but won't be holding my breath. The fella who came out before me looked well rattled, was funny. Sure twas good experience of nothing else!
