Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
San Ramon, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Robert Half.

Interview Details – I got the job lead through a recruiter, for a marketing position in their headquarters. They moved very fast, which was nice. Two of the people I interviewed with were great, but one just stared at me like a dead fish. My background was not the best fit for what they were looking for, but unfortunately the recruiter didn't really have a handle on what they needed, resulting in some time wasted on all sides.

Interview Question – Normal questions...how do you approach a project, etc.   Answer Question

.NET Developer Interview

.NET Developer
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Robert Half.

Interview Details – First interview with Robert Half was for the RH associate to get to know my background, done over skype. Online skills test also taken. Second interview, in person, was to get to know the associate in person and to review what positions they had in mind for you. Also had to meet with several other RH employees to further help in the job hunt.

Interview Question – Since RH was a recruiter, they did not ask me anything unexpected. It was all simply to get to know me and my background.   Answer Question

Office Administrator Interview

Office Administrator
Oakland, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Robert Half in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applicants can browse positions and submit their resumes online at OfficeTeam.com. If your qualifications fit the current need, you will be contacted by an Account Manager:

The preliminary interview consists of a 1:1 sit down with your Account Manager, and essentially serves as a mock interview. During this meeting you will discuss your current administrative skill set, preferred work space, function and ideal placement. This is also a time for the Account Manager to evaluate your job seeker and/or interview etiquette (how you present yourself as an applicant, resume format...etc). Though relatively brief at 20-30 minutes tops, you will likely receive one or more homework assignments to maximize your "hireability" -- humbly accept these evaluations and move to correct any potential dings against you. Brushing up on Excel, removing an eye-brow ring or making use of the company's many training modules can easily expand your placement options.

Note: You may or may not be asked to submit to the typical battery of typing and software assessments, but BE PREPARED to do so.

Otherwise, you have nothing to fear in this case. If you can prove your willingness to grow as an administrative professional, these folks are generally willing to help you. Keep in mind that temping can be a terrific "gateway" opportunity into workplaces others wait years to break into. So if you're fresh out of college: Start "low" and aim high. Build the skills necessary to a company's operations, get in some face-time and you might find yourself in the running for that next mid-level management position.

Happy Hunting!

Interview Question – No brain teasers or double-talk here. Just a direct, informational line of questioning.   Answer Question
