Graduate selection process

Graduate selection process

The graduate selection process is the same for both policy and management programs and
comprises three stages.

Stage One: Application

Make your future here

To apply for the Honeywell Graduate Program, you need to submit an online application through our current opportunities page.

Your application will need to provide:

  • your personal details
  • A current CV
  • A cover letter
  • your university transcripts. Applications without the documents will not be reviewed.

You will need to indicate the position you wish to apply for and location preference.

After completing the application, you’ll be emailed confirmation details on your submission. If you
do not receive this, please email

The selection committee will review applications and shortlist them for progression to the next

Stage Two: Online Testing and Video Interview

You will then be invited to complete online testing and video interview if you meet the eligibility requirements of the programs.

The selection committee will review applications and shortlist them for progression to the next stage of the assessment process.

Video Assessment

The video interview will be sent to you via email and you will be asked a few questions around your interest in working with Honeywell and your interest in the role. The video interview is designed to test your communication and presentation skills as well as your ability to think on your feet.

For Graduate Software Engineers ONLY

You will also send a coding challenge to complete online at the same step as the online testing and video interview.

Stage Three: Assessment Centre

The assessment centre is held in the state of the role you have applied for. Candidates must attend this assessment in person: assessments cannot be conducted by video conferencing or Skype.

The assessment centre will include the following tasks:

  • Group exercise
  • Panel interview

The selection committee will review applications and shortlist them for progression to the next
stage- second interview.

Stage Four: Second Interview

Before attending the second interview you will be required to:

  • Complete an online behavioural profile test. The test is not determinative, but contributes to the selection committee’s assessment of a candidate’s ‘fit’ for the job

Additional Information
At this early stage of planning assessment centres are expected to be held in May and June 2020. Please note these dates may change.

Referee reports enable the selection committee to verify the information obtained in your application and during assessment activities.

Offers and Outcome
Successful candidates will be contacted by phone and email. At this stage, we will look to make offers by June 2020.

We make all selection decisions based on merit. This means:

  • the selection process is fair and consistent
  • assessment is based on the inherent requirements of the role
  • based on the assessment, the best person for the role is selected.

Due to the size of the process and the number of applications received, we are not able to provide feedback to unsuccessful candidates in the initial stages of the process. All applicants who attend the assessment centre will have the opportunity to seek feedback.
