    Key Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Informa in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received lead through recruiter. Initial WebEx discussion followed by face-to-face interview. Asked to present 90 day plan.

    Interview Questions
    • The position was a hybrid in that the candidate would both manage a territory and individuals. In retrospect I focused on learning the products and customers when I should have placed more emphasis on my leadership strategy. In presenting the plan it is easier to lay out a 90 day strategy for ramping up a territory, more difficult to present a plan in terms of leading specific individuals.   Answer Question
