Business Development Consultant Interview

Business Development Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in April 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview- the phone interview was very basic. Nothing out of the ordinary. The recruiter gave me an overview of the Business Development Consultant and explained to me how it was essentially a sales role. After discussing the position, the recruiter asked me questions about my resume and related experience. Interview lasted about 20 minutes. The recruiter was not charismatic when discussing Oracle which was a real turn off.

Business Development Consultant

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online through my university and received an offer for an interview on campus the following week. The interview lasted about 45 minutes and it was fairly behavioral. The recruiter had me walk him through my resume and he would stop and ask questions concerning each activity. He asked me a few difficult questions but I think it was just to see how I handled myself in certain situations since the role is primarily sales. I received a job offer on the spot and accepted a few weeks later. The internal process is kind of lengthy but it's understandable with such a large company with sensitive data.

Interview Question – There wasn't anything too unexpected or difficult. They want to see your competitive spirit and drive that aligns with the position and the mission of the company.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my starting date as well as a relocation allocation.

Reston, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in November 2012.

Interview Details – Long process with plenty of iterations. Met with Recruiter for phone screening -- then with current senior BD's for panel interview, then with hiring manager and finally a quick call with the regional VP. Strenuous timeline but understand their need to hire the best (and be sure).

Interview Question – All fairly standard. Actually enjoyed getting to speak with folks already in the role.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Oracle in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online through my university and was invited to a one-on-one interview with the senior director of business development on campus. He had me walk through my resume and explain what drew me to the (very diverse) internships I've had. He also asked about specific goals that I've set and reached as well as goals that I have not yet reached. We also touched on the classic "where do you see yourself in 5 years" type of question. The interviewer placed a big emphasis on how competitive the company/position are and how you must have a lot of drive to succeed in the position. He gave me a "homework" assignment that basically was what I'd write in a thank you note anyway, and I heard back within approx. a week.

Interview Question – There wasn't anything too unexpected. They really wanted concrete proof of drive/competitive spirit.   View Answer

Business Development Consultant Interview

Business Development Consultant

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in April 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through a campus job fair. I had a call scheduled with the recruiter on the spot for the next week. Three days later, I had a phone call with a regional manager that went very poorly (so I thought) and was surprisingly scheduled for another interview the next day. I had a phone interview with the area manager/director and the next day he called and offered me a job.

Interview Question – Give examples of how you are competitive.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – All BDCs are paid the same base salary and bonus schedule. You will not get a raise until you are promoted out of the BDC role.
