Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Irvine, CA

The process took a day - interviewed at CoStar Group in August 2010.

Interview Details – Very friendly phone interview with recruiter. She was easy to talk to and very professional. Shje asked questions about job experience, discussed the position and would have set up an in-person interview but the timing was not right for me. This recruiter was professional and had a great personality.

Interview Question – Why did you leave one job to go to the next?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Bad timing but would very much hope to be considering down the road
