Marketing Interview

Marketing
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sime Darby in August 2009.

Interview Details – There were 2 rounds of interviews, first with the HR executive and folllowed by a second interview with the hiring managers. Interviews were largely informal with questions based on my past experience and what I expected the role to be like. Perceptions of hiring managers was cordial and while culture was not discussed explicitly, it was an informal interview that was more of a discussion and chat.

Interview Question – What is your experience in marketing to date? Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years time?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiate at the start for a position suited and commensurate with your experience. As opportunities for development are hard to come by, it is recommended to start only at what you are comfortable with.
