Difficult Interview

Associate Manager, Business Development Interview

Associate Manager, Business Development
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at France Telecom in June 2008.

Interview Details – Applied via email.

First call with HR lasted 15 minutes. Tested mostly English knowledge and asked few administrative questions. A formality.

Then had to prepare 2 case studies about 2 topics related to recent US market developments. Each case studies was to be completed by the next day.

Debriefing about the case studies on call with hiring manager and his boss: intense Q&A session. It is make or break time. This lasted 90 minutes

FInally another director will interview you (behavorial mostly).
