  • The interview is followed by a series of tests

There may also be some IQ type tests just to check your capacity to learn, memorize and remember stuff. Getting through this test will require that you prepare for it probably a few days in advance. You can try to revise all that you have studied, in addition also try to brush up on your math skills since math is an integral part of these tests.

Final Interview of the trainee surveyor recruitment program

The final interview is something that helps a company to shortlist the people who have managed to get through their tests. Here you will probably be introduced to the head surveyor along with some other people who will ask you a series of both personal and professional questions. Getting through this phase will ensure that you have passed through the trainee surveyor recruitment process. In a number of cases the interview will mostly be to reduce the number of people who have passed so that they are equivalent to their hiring quota of the company. The interview time can vary from 10 minutes to 30 minutes but not more depending on how things go. On average people who managed to get through the test will probably get through the final interview as well.
