International Consultant Interview

International Consultant

Interviewed at COWI

Interview Details – The hiring process was a simple one of word of mouth as the job was not advertised. Therefore a friend recommended that I apply for the position and via an email I did. I sent in my CV and it was reviewed. They then contacted my references and got back to me in two weeks time. They then invited me to Copenhagen for an interview which I accepted. They paid the airfare and hotel accommodations. The interview took three hours and I then flew back home. I was then notified that my application was accepted by the country representative in Ghana and a job offer was extended.

Interview Question – All questions were reasonable and expected, there were no trick questions and the panel was very straight forward. Very professional   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiations, basically they offered a package and indicated that it was take it or leave it, so I took it.

Consultant Interview

Kongens Lyngby (Denmark)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at COWI.

Interview Details – In this case, the job was identified via word of mouth and not advertised. As such I was contacted via email and a CV was sent in. An interview date was scheduled for three weeks later. An interview panel of three mangers including the VP of the division was convened and it lasted 3 hours.

Interview Question – Several questions were asked about the project that I could not answer as I was not there when it was designed but that did not seem to have any effect on the outcome as I was selected for the position.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was little to negotiate as they made a firm offer that I accepted.
