Summer Intern Interview

Summer Intern
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Robert Walters.

Interview Details – Interview involved a rotation of 3 cycles, each a 1 one 1 interview with the head of the company. Asked about experience, why this company, unique position of Robert Walters in SF vs other cities, SF specialties and trends in business hiring, 3rd party hiring/recruiting, etc. There were some redundant questions about applying resume abilities to hiring.

Interview Question – What makes the business climate in SF different and unique from other locations?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – intern responsibilities were pretty rudimentary and basic, didn't feel I would learn a lot and gain a lot of experience
