    Learning Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Duke Clinical Research Institute in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume and cover letter online and was contacted via email within two weeks to send a reviewable portfolio of my work to the hiring manager. After that a phone interview was scheduled, followed by an in-person 'panel' interview that consisted of the director of Organizational Learning, Manager, two Sr. Learning Consultants and Training Coordinator. I thought the interview process was well-thought out, organized, and fair, and I was impressed by the team and their positive comments about each other and the company.

    Interview Questions

The SME's are the project owners, and they're the experts. What do you suggest for a proposal, and how to do you overcome objections?   Answer Question
