Strategist Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Razorfish in January 2007.

Interview Details

The HR group was organized and very helpful, particularly the recruiter who led me through the process. I appreciated the prompt phone follow-up after interviews, and detailed information about what to expect within the interview itself.

I had one phone interview as well as a half-day on-site interview. The half-day consisted of meeting with five senior team members for at least 30 minutes each, as a "case interview." The case interview presented a digital business problem and required me to come up with a strategic solution. I was given about 30 minutes to write a presentation on blank Powerpoint slides and then present/defend the solution to two team members posing as clients.

Success factors for the interview: knowledge of economic and strategic business factors affecting online businesses, poise under fire, understanding of the online environment and understanding of what makes successful web products from the user perspective.

I interviewed for the position on Wednesday morning and received a verbal offer by Thursday evening.
