Business Development Interview

Business Development
New York, NY

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Terrapinn in November 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process started with an initial phone screen. They invited me in for group interview. The group interview consisted of a brief overview of the company followed by informational packets. We were assigned to a take-home assignment. I was invited for second interview and this time math with a manager who is very young and intimidated by me due to her lack of experience.

Interview Question – Are you comfortable making phone cold calls.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I chose to decline the offer because it was not aligned with my career aspirations and the job wasn't going to be challenging enough for me.

Intern Interview

Intern
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Terrapinn in April 2010.

Interview Details – Long detailed interview process. Lack of involvement from senior management. Good flow of questions and engaging interview. Questions were mainly targeted at individuals' background and character. Company is not particular with experience and knowledge of individual at entry-level position. Received consistent updates albeit a longer than expected duration.

Interview Question – Strengths and weaknesses.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – To be firm and committed to your expectations

Business Development Manager Interview

Business Development Manager
Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Terrapinn in October 2012.

Interview Details – First communication through recruiter. Then phone interview, then face to face interview and then a final face to face with a roleplay.

There were a lot of grandiose claims made in this interview, about the size of events, the size of the company, the success rate of staff and staff loyalty.

All of the above turned out to be false.

Interview Question – I was told in my first face to face interview "I think you would be a great asset to a company, but unfortunately that company is not Terrapinn"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I negotiated on salary for quite some time. I felt the management respected me for doing this but on a few occasions my salary level was used as a stick to beat me with later on.
