Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Wilmington, DE

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at DuPont in October 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was an on-campus interview for second year MBA students. The questions were focused on understanding the summer internship experience and project. The interviewer also asked specific questions and try to see if you have experience and sense of B2B marketing, which is typically what the program is hiring for. One of the question was how to develop a marketing plan. The interviewer asked in detail what would you do in each and every steps. Another question was if a R&D engineer told you about a new product idea, how would you response to him.
