Consultant Interview

Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 5+ months - interviewed at Inter-American Development Bank in November 2009.

Interview Details – One interview with a panel of six interviewers. Questions focused mainly on technical issues and previous work experience. In my case there was a strong need for a managerial and technical profile combined. The interview was in Spanish and English. The process was a bit slow as from interview to actual hire it took like 8 months.

Interview Question – Lots of technical questions in wide range of subjects. There is a need for a very comprehensive knowledge in your area of expertise and a Regional focus.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You negotiate with contracting officers. Salaries are determined by tabulators and there is little room for negotiation.

Interview Details – First, HR contacts you and you take a personality test. Then you are invited to a panel interview with 5 managers. They will ask you to go over your CV, and how can you apply what you learned to the position you are interviewing for. Some technical questions covering structured finance, such as ratios,etc.

Negotiation Details – There is not much room for negotiation, I would say 5% max.
