    The process was thorough: multiple interviews and written paper (interesting by the way). A meeting to see fit with the team. Last round with upper management very short, just to validate. All along people were nice and communicated about process and next steps.

    Trade Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ubifrance in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the company via email that my application had been reviewed and accepted and they wanted to conduct an initial interview...in French, totally in French. I confirmed with them and made plans for an interview a week from the notification.
    Since my French was a little weak and my biggest weakness was listening and understanding the spoken word, I went to the library and checked out Cd's and books on basic and Advanced French. The advanced French selection had a job interview section which was dead on as to the questions and process of the interview. My interview went pretty much just like the cd/book said it would, with the same type of questions and subject matter.

    I then listened to various subjects on french but focused on the job interview, economics and vineyard section as this is what the position entailed.

    I then sat down and really thought about the subject matter that I wanted to talk about, which was: my resume and experience, my passion for wine, and my personal traits and skills; and looked up all French words and verbs that decribed all of the above and practiced, practiced, practiced.

    I also did research on the UbiFrance website and google as well as my wine regions and some wine-drinking statistics.

    Lastly, I prepared 4 copies of my resume, lost a couple of pounds (lol), and got my game face on!!....

    The interview started completely in French, and an advanced French at that. The interviewer was very pleasant but totally assumed that I spoke Fluent french..so his conversation was fluid, non-stop french. The CD's really helped my listening skills in picking up words, verbs, and liasons that can be very difficult for a non-native speaker. He asked me, in order, the following questions:
    - Why am I interested in this position?
    - What experiences do I have?
    - He went over my entire resume and previous jobs and asked me what I did in each one and why I left each one.
    - He went over my schooling and training
    - He saw that I was in the Army and asked about that as well.
    My guess is that, although he could read very well in English, he had some trouble discerning what I actually did in each job and wanted me to explain them in French.
    - He asked if I could also read and write in French and what other languages I spoke.
    - One of the big follow on questions was how I could accomplish what I thought needed to be done for this position.
    - He also asked me what type of wine knowledge I had in regard to regions, i.e, Napa, Sonoma, Bourdeaux, Burgundyt, Champagne, Cote Du Rhohe, etc.
    - Lastly, he asked about my availability and the terms of salary for the job.

    That's about it. Hope this helps.
