Interview Details – I was approached by Adcock Ingram for a role in Marketing.
The first interview was a one and one with the HR recruiter.

The questions were "give me an example of when.." scenarios. Generally, relating to a general project management template as well as expected timelines etc.
Communication involving Managerial skills, i.e. do you pay attention to detail, or do you prefer a holistic approach. Also, general information on the company
After this interview, I was contacted for a second interview with HR and my boss.
Questions ranged from Education and work experience, to computer competency again, technical background, project management processes, how to deal with difficult colleagues (anger issues), example of when I failed only to succeed, my greatest weakness, do I prefer working well with others or am I an Individual performer.

Negotiation Details – Always negotiate. As a graduate, there is not much room for negotiations and as the market is very competitive one should be grateful for the job. However, this does not mean one cannot negotiate!
