    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Nielsen (Istanbul (Turkey)) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was recruited after one interview by the team I am going to be working for. Team manager, Client Representative and a Business Analyst came to the interview. It was a friendly environment and they were more like chatting and asking about my background, university life and courses. They also asked about my knowledge about marketing research. One of the most important thing was to be long term, start as soon as possible and be able to continue part time 2-3 days during term time. Before the interview, I needed to make a translation to prove my English speaking abilities.

    Interview Questions

    • I would not say that there was a very complicated or any technical question. However, I hear that later on the interview process has changed. Now, they first give a mathematical test and translation. Then, HR interview and then interview with the team manager as the final step.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation as I was an intern. They had a fixed daily salary.
