Business Development/Account Management Associate Interview

Business Development/Account Management Associate
Arlington, VA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CEB.

Interview Details – Phone Interview - More than average walk me through your resume etc.; the interviewer asked a few behavioral questions so be ready. 2 Online Assessments, 1 Reading Test and 1 Personality Test. Interview in person with 2 people; easy and casual. Offer extended a little over a week later. Recruiter was helpful and sent a lot of material to help prepare for the interview.

Interview Question – All Behavioral Questions. Go to the Interview Toolkit on their website under the Career section - all of the behavioral questions were on the list. Follow CAR method and practice talking over your answers before the interview. The questions are very detailed/ specific but if you prepare you will be fine.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Business Development/Account Management Associate Interview

Business Development/Account Management Associate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CEB in May 2014.

Interview Details – A recruiter contacted me within a week or so of submitting my resume to schedule a phone interview. The interview was about 30 minutes long. The recruiter conducting the interview was very unenthusiastic and made it seem like I was wasting her time. I'm normally very good with phone interviews by having an upbeat sense of humor and passion for the position, but this woman was not having it. She said she would get back to me within two weeks if I moved on to the second round. It's been over a month and I haven't heard back at all... I was initially very excited for this opportunity. Needless to say, I'm very disappointed in the handling of this recruitment process.

Interview Question – "Run me through your resume and experience," mostly behavioral questions, how did you balance you college courses and extracurriculars?   Answer Question

Account Management/Business Development Associate Interview

Account Management/Business Development Associate

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CEB.

Interview Details – The process was very quick. I scheduled a first round phone interview and talked to a recruiter a few days later on the phone for about 30 minutes or so. Unfortunately it didn't feel like I was conversing with the person, it seemed rather forced and rush. They didn't get to know my full background and didn't ask about my interests in the company or why I wanted to work for them or in these particular industries.

Interview Question – Please tell me about the most successful project you've ever managed.   Answer Question
