    International Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • 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.
