I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Italy-America Chamber of Commerce in February 2010.
Interview Details – In the beginning I contacted the organization through the carreer service of my university. They arranged the phone interview on my behalf. They sent to the organization CVs of possible candidates and then they would have called the ones with the best background/matching profiles.
After some weeks I was called for a phone interview. Firstly, they ask me about my background and past experiences in a general way. Then they focus specifically on my import/export related experiences asking further details on the companies for which I used to work. Eventually they asked me to motivate my candidature for the position, keeping on asking "why we should hire you?" in a quite insistent manner. Although the speaker seemed to be a bit annoyed by my replies I did not discourage myself and I kept a very self confident attitude. In my opinion, this was an attempt to test my patience. So, I remained calm and eventually it worked and I got the job. The interviewer appeared as a very confident person, even arrogant sometimes. I have to admit that, once I got to know him better, my initial feelings turned out to be perfectly right.
Negotiation Details – I wasn't able to negotiate at all. Not even the starting date. It was a "take it or leave it" offer.
