    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nielsen.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through university recruitment.

    Was invited to complete a reasoning test. The test included basic statistics questions (high-school level problems) along with a case study at the end, giving a client a recommendation. The test seemed easy but I didn't not get invited back to any further steps. It seems like the test was used to weed out candidates. I'm certain all the math questions were answered correctly. Perhaps they were looking for unique answers to the case study.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Nielsen in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Apparently companies no longer judge you through an interview, or phone interview, but through a simple initial email response.

    I received an email from a recruiter asking when I would be able to speak and set up a potential time for a phone interview to discuss the position. I responded within the hour and said when I would be available and that I am happy to speak about the job, and to please let me know what time would be best for them to contact me.

    And that was that....no response. I tried contacting them multiple times after, but not too many, just in case somehow some emergency occurred. Nothing.

    I guess my style of responding wasn't Nielsen material. Unreal.
