Business Development Manager Interview

Business Development Manager
Mountain View, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Google in October 2011.

Interview Details – I was offered an intial phone screen by human resources and held a telephone interview that lasted ~20 minutes. Essentially, the HR rep wanted to know my SAT, GPA, and GRE scores. After providing this information, I was passed onto a Google manager within another department for a 1st round interview in person. Interview was difficult because the woman that interviewed me was an engineer and didn't have interpersonal skills. Basically, they wanted to know how well I did on tests and other academic measures that I felt were unimportant for a job in business development. I recieved an offer after my colleges provided my test scores and transcripts.

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Google in February 2012.

Interview Details – I was amazed how professional, smiling and interested the recruiter was. She called me absolutely on time and in 30 minutes we had a great chat. It was more of talking to a friend, meanwhile she asked me precise questions in order to get to know my background. Great experience. A pity I didn't get the job, but it was nevertheless a very first glimpse to that awesome company.
