This program is not like any other stepping stone. This is a chance to actively develop your skills while making a genuine difference in the industry. Imagine working alongside talented professionals in different countries, connecting to top companies from Australia, New Zealand,  the US, and the UK! You’ll gain valuable experience from day one! 

That’s the kind of opportunity that awaits you at Filta!

But with so many talented applicants, how can you make your application stand out from the crowd? 

Here are some top tips to help you shine:

  1. Before You Apply: Know yourself and Filta.

Assess yourself
Before you jump in, take a quick breath and think about yourself. Is Filta a good fit for your skills and goals? Check out the program details and values (Educate, Empower, Guide, Support), and see if they match your strengths and what you want to achieve.

Do your research
Spend some time checking out Filta’s website and social media. See what we’re all about and what we stand for. Get a clear understanding of our core values (Educate, Empower, Guide, and Support) and our mission. This will show you’re interested and can help you write an application that matches what we’re looking for.

Learn about the program
Take a good look at the graduate program description, especially the part that says “Who Are We Looking For?”. This will tell you what kind of person we’re seeking. Once you know that, make sure your application shows them you have those skills.

  1. Prepare Your Application: Highlight your strengths.

Curriculum vitae
Your CV is your first impression, so make it count! Aim for a clean and professional look that’s easy to read. This means using a clear font, keeping it organized, and avoiding clutter. 

Since hiring managers often skim through many resumes quickly, put the most important information at the top. Highlight any relevant experience you have in business, people relations, HR, or related fields. Don’t forget to showcase your academic achievements and strong references. 

We’re looking for someone with:

  1. Experience or interest in business and people relations
  2. High academic performance (strong recommendations from professors are a plus!)
  3. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  4. Strong critical thinking and problem-solving abilities
  5. Proven ability to collaborate effectively within a team
  6. High adaptability and a willingness to embrace new challenges
  7. Demonstrated resourcefulness in various situations
  8. Confidence in one’s abilities and decisions
  9. Willingness to learn

Highlight your experiences related to these factors we’re looking for!

Lastly, remember that your resume is all about you! It should showcase your relevant skills and experience in a way that highlights why you’d be a great fit for the graduate program.

Cover letter
There’s a misconception that cover letters don’t get read, but that’s simply not true! Here at Filta, we actually do read your cover letter.

This is an opportunity for us to get to know you a little better by providing us with a glimpse of who you are.

If you’re having trouble with writing your cover letter, you may answer these questions:

  • Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
  • What made you interested in applying to the graduate program?
  • What are your career goals?
  • What Filta Values do you align with the most?
  • What makes you special? Is there something unique you bring to the table?

VideoAsk introduction
This video is your way to show Filta who you are! 

Dress comfortably, relax, and be yourself. Tell them a little about you, your studies, and what caught your eye about Filta’s program. Did anything in the description sound like something you’re good at or have experience with? Mention it and explain why it would be helpful for Filta!

  1. Ace the Assessment

Written assessment
Get ready to solve problems and think things through before the test. Then, when you’re taking it, write your answers in a clear and short way. Make sure your answers are well-organized, showing you can understand the information and come up with solutions.

Virtual interview
Get ready to impress at your interview! Think about questions we might ask, like “Tell me about a time you overcame a challenge.”

Then, in your answers, show you’re reliable, can handle tough situations, and are a great communicator. Be yourself, speak clearly, and show them how excited you are!

Simulation/Role-Play assessment
For this part, grab a friend or family member and run through your own simulation to prepare. Act like they’re the “client” and you’re trying to help them. Listen closely to what they need, ask questions to understand them better, and be friendly! This will help you feel more confident for the real thing.

Panel interview
Almost there! This is your last interview before you know for sure. Be ready to ask questions about Filta and the program you’d be in. Show them you’re a great teammate who’s confident and can solve problems. Remind them why you love what Filta does and how you can help contribute to the team!
