Associate Director Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Bear Stearns.
I was recruited by an executive recruiter and had three interviews. The first one was with HR and was lengthy. The next two interviews were with the SMDs I would report to. Each of them asked very different questions and most of of it was about my previous experience and how that experience would allow me to contribute to the goals of the new entrepreneurial venture, within Bear Stearns, I was to work for.
- The most difficult question was that I would now be approaching a different segment of the financial services sector, than I had in the past. Even though I had a lot of financial services experience, how would I be able to be successful within this new niche? Answer Question
Not very lenghty as the base salary was very good and the bonus was strictly based on a percentage of the new business I was able to bring in.
