    Marketing and Communications Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Hamilton Lane Advisors.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screening with HR rep, was then brought in and met with head of Marketing and person whose job the new position would be filling. Was brought back in again about a week later and met with the same individuals again for a casual conversation, and then interviewed with 2 members of the investment team. Called by HR about a week later to come in to meet 4 more members of the analyst team. Received a call about a week later saying they went with another candidate with more experience.

    Overall, an average experience. I was initially told there would only be 2 in-person interviews, so I thought by the 3rd one I probably had the job and they just wanted me to meet more people. Clearly wrong. There was an HR issue before the 3rd in-person interview when I was told the interview would be either Monday or Tuesday and then was not told a time until 2 hours before the interview. I had to reschedule because I had made a prior commitment, though I think HR took full responsibility for it.

    The questions were really not very pressing. Because it was a for a new position, I think they realized that it was better to go with someone with much more experience than I had.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hamilton Lane Advisors in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Four one-on-one interviews. Very few technical questions during the interview. The technical part was saved for the excel evaluation which focused on your knowledge of fundamental finance topics important to private equity as well as your excel skills. There was also a case study for which you had to write a short essay.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Hamilton Lane Advisors in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    Did a phone interview with the HR. She was nice and very informative about the job duties and responsibilities. I was then offered a second interview with three employers whom I would be working with in a team. That went really well. They just wanted to see if you were fit for the job, if you fit in with the team and what you know/don't know. The third interview was with a manager who gave you more information about the job and projects. Ask a lot of questions.
