    Assets Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at FAO of the UN in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    First we had an hour long English pre-screening exam. I can't comment on how easy or difficult it was - I studied in the US so it was easy for me. Then I had my first interview with an HR person and two unit managers. They were asking the classic interview questions, like, where do you see yourself in 3 years, your strengths and weaknesses, what would you do if you got an angry phone call from a customer, etc... Then I had two 1:1 interviews with two team leaders, whose teams they were considering me for and I ended up choosing one.

    Interview Questions
    • Where do you see yourself in 3 yrs?
      I hate this Q because it's a Catch 22: if you say "in the same position", you're not ambitious enough; if you say, "well, working on this or that kind of project" or "being in a managerial position", they're worried that you already want to get ahead, or perhaps don't even like the job you're applying for, that much...
