Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
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.
