    I was Director of National Recruitment for the State of Tennessee, overseeing the recruitment and expansion of industry.

    Former Employee - Director of National Recruitment  in  Nashville, TN
    Former Employee - Director of National Recruitment in Nashville, TN

    I worked at State of Tennessee full-time for more than 3 years


    The position is very rewarding in the sense of a) establishing relationships across the country with corporations as well as site selection consultants, b) working with communities across the State in assisting them with their job creation/retention efforts, and c) establishing relationships with existing industries across the State of Tennessee.


    The greatest challenge for working in this position is the changing of a "current" administration, which can result in being dismissed in an "executive service position".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A key success factor in a normal business environment is to establish relationships not only internally with staff members, but also to establish and maintain relationships with those companies/entities that have invested or would consider investing in your company's product or service.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at State of Tennessee.

    Interview Details

    I applied online early May and about one week after the posting closed, I received an email informing me to contact someone at the state to schedule an interview. A week later I had an interview with several others since they were hiring 28 people for this position. We were escorted to a room and watched a video on the disability claim process. After the video we did a written exam which consisted of answering a few questions about the video and one additional questions on how we would handle a negative person at work. I believe they were looking at our ability to summarize information and write. I had just the one interview before they contacted me to offer me the job a week later. It took about 4 weeks total.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult. Situational questions mainly such as: Tell us about a time when you had to deal with an angry client? Tell us about a time when you had multiple deadlines and how you handle that? Tell us about a time when you had to deal with a negative person at work? etc...   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation as it's the state and you have to start off at the level one position/salary.
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
