Business Development Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in January 2014.

Interview Details

Initial contact was very easy to set up as I was dealing directly with a recruiter. Contact thereafter was a bit patchy and really only led anywhere when I pressed the recruiter for details. The "HR questions" weren't too bad and all of the people I spoke with were very personable when I could get them on the phone. The process was smooth in transitioning from one phase to another.

Interview Questions
  • When I spoke with the regional manager, he asked me to make a small sales pitch for an item - which was surprising because he had just finished explaining to me that this was not a true sales role.   View Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. 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.

    I applied through college or university. 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.

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • All fairly standard. Actually enjoyed getting to speak with folks already in the role.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. 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.

    The interview process is fairly intense although there were no in person interviews. Atleast for this position. All of the interviews were over the phone for about 30 min each. I went through 4 rounds of interviews before being offered the job.
