    After the resume's screening there is a phone interview. The interviewer asked me many questions about my background and education. In particular: why did I chose my bachelor and m.s. and which skills I developed.The interview was quite easy and it was around 15 minutes. The results arrived after one week.

    Attended an initial Info Session, applied online through my University application website, attended a Pre-Night, then had a 45 minute Behavioral Interview. If you were going for a full-time position you had to do another interview in the Chicago office in a week.

    Job fit
    Then typical behavioral questions.
    Why do you think you will be a good fit for Nielsen
    Explain a time when you were a leader

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Nielsen Company in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    My interview was very straight forward considering I was still a high school student that was encouraged to apply for a spring internship program by my teacher who had experience with Nielsen. I was asked basic questions like my strengths, weaknesses and career outlooks. The interviewers were both very friendly and inviting and gave me a tour of the facilities. I was notified of my acceptance into the highschool internship program about a week later.

    Interview Questions
    • For me personally, I had trouble clarifying my weaknesses because this was my first major interview, so I did not have experience on how to appropriately answer that.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Nielsen Company.

    Interview Details

    The process involved two rounds of interviews. The first was an on campus interview and it went fairly well though I recommend reading researching in what they actually do, not a broad response but a specific one. The second interview consisted of an on site interview and it also went fairly well as well as very professional.
