    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Unilever (Trumbull, CT) in February 2013.

    Interview

    On Campus Interview. Got the interview opportunity in the school career fair and had an on set interview the next day. It went on pretty well and I had a good chat with both interviewers. Got the offer later in the same day. It was a 6 month internship. So the process is much simpler than a formal employee.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Unilever (Trumbull, CT) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Interview with a manager and another upper level employee. Focused mainly on experience even though it was for an internship. They seemed too busy to train someone and stressed that they wanted someone who could come in and hit the ground running. I was not offered the position because they went with a candidate who had SQL experience. In hindsight I'm glad I didn't get it because I don't think they would teach you very much, which is kind of the point of an internship.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Unilever (Trumbull, CT) in March 2009.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on the company's website. after three weeks, I was called by a recruiter and he informed me that the hiring manager was interested in interviewing me for the position within a weeks time. I asked for the the name of the Hiring Manager and his phone #. With that information in hands, I set out to do a thorough research on the Hiring Manager, the Company, the Position and the functions of the daily task of A similar post in other companies.Google, Yahoojobs.com are great help. Once at the interview, I had a heartfelt smile and strong hand shake with the HM. He broke the ice by talking about the game the nite before. I jumped in with a lot of passion and we tlaked for about trash about individual teams. He was a cool guy! I liked him right there. Once on the main issues of the interview. The same passion I showed him about the game , was displayed about the job and I spoke about all the llttle details that I could. After the interview, He asked whether I would like to see around the office and I accepted. The office was clean and bright. I was introduced to the person leaving the job for a promotion. we Talked a little bit about the job and said to him that when I come in, I will keep the name on cubicle for six months and he laugh and commented," I like you already" .
    Well, I got the job the next day.
    As you can see, I did my home work, I showed passion, and was a likeable poerson. I learned later from my manger, that the guy put in a word for me via an email. Please do all your home work, Like you are taking your GMAT!!

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my salary. I was initially offer $5k above my salary at the time. However, I researched and knew that they were willing to offer a $10k for the job based on experienced. I drew the Interviewer attention to my work with other members of the sales team and I certainly knew how the Sales force operated. And that he would not have to take a long time to get me acquianted to the inner working of the job. More Importantly, I knew how to use the mian software that the Sales force used daily. I got the $10k I requested after a few minutes of discussions with his Manager.
    HTe advice is simple: get to know a whole lot about the job by researching every aspect including the softwares, the people and the daily functions.
