    Internet Marketing Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Started with an easy phone screening (why you're applying, your background, etc), as well as an online skills test. Skills test just requires grammar and plug-and-chug math using SEO concepts... even if you aren't familiar with SEO, you can mostly figure it out on the spot. After another phone interview (again, not too rigorous), you get invited to come into their Chicago office. If you're from out of town, they won't assist you financially or logistically with your visit. The final interview consists of back-to-back meetings with many members of management, which included a case study (you can't prepare for it), a deeper introduction to the role, and more "explain why digital media marketing"/"explain why Rise"/"talk about _____ on your resume". Everyone was pretty nice. They will assume you understand the basic ins and outs of digital media marketing even if you don't have experience, so be prepared for rapid fire acronyms and industry terms. When I asked for clarification, unknown acronyms were explained with more unknown acronyms (my resume made no effort to pretend that I had industry experience), which made me really uncomfortable asking the clarifying questions I needed to ask to understand the role. They gave me a tour, and got back to me shortly after with a rejection. I think it helps if you appear "thick skinned" and ready for a hard fast-paced environment, as well as more knowledgable about terminology (even if you clearly have no prior experience).

    Interview

    It was through the college website. First was a brief online test, and it just basic easy math need to pug in numbers and some kind knowledge of SEO. Second was a phone interview, and the interview was brief also and basic questions like please go through the resume and why this company? why Chicago?

    Interview

    This is just a review about the HR dept. I applied for a position here over the weekend, and monday morning, got a personal email from their Talent Acquisition Manager. Although he told me that they were going to go ahead with another candidate, his email was brilliantly worded. He recommended some local associations and events that I should consider attending which might improve my chances, and ended the email on a positive note.

    This is far far more than what I've seen from any other company that I've applied for. In most cases, your resume ends up somewhere in the ether, as there are a lot of fake job postings (recruiting firms and websites just collecting your data for selling later). In a few cases you might get a recruiter who responds, but then thinks you're "too technical" or something and refuses to forward it along. In rare cases you will get direct responses from the Hiring Manager, if they're efficient and will setup a short phone call in the next day or two.

    But not once have I received a response like the one I got this morning. It really puts the "human" back in HR.

    I commend them for what they're doing and I wish other companies would take note.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    One phone interview, one on-site interview with three people. One person seemed unhappy that I was there...I was told that I would be sitting at reception while they would take care of everything else that went along with the job - except travel arrangements - and that I would be doing the dishes. (Considering the number of employees - they shouldn't be using dishes as at a smaller agency - unless they want to hire a full-time dishwasher - there are hundreds of employees.) There was a major disconnect with this person. They didn't ask if I had a problem cleaning the kitchen - I don't - that's part of the job. I was asked if there was a way to stop people from leaving dirty dishes in the sink. From experience, one way to accomplish that is to put a camera in the kitchen which management naturally shies away from. Another way I mentioned is to use disposable dishes. This person was also amused with my resume - that it was so very detailed. "Guest Relations Specialist"...???? What is that? It is no wonder that they're still looking for a receptionist when they're really looking for a "guest relations specialist" who will be super-thrilled doing dishes for hundreds of people every day, while someone, I guess, would be at reception. Someone else told me that I had to dress sharply everyday...considering I was rather well-dressed for my interview, I wondered why if I was going to be doing dishes all day. I think that that one of the persons did not want me to work there and did not share that with the other people involved in the interview process. Rise Interactive - figure it out!

    Interview

    You have to take an online test, you get two chances. The level was not too difficult, and I think most people will get it right on the 2nd try. You need to get 80 or above. Phone interview was a classic one. Tell me about yourself Q's and was short.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rise Interactive.

    Interview

    I only got as far as the assessment test (one question shy of passing) which I found difficult but impressive. There were grammar questions! I wanted to hug someone for understanding that math is just as important as writing. The response email was also terrific. They gave me recommendations for local recruiters, certification courses, and online readings specifically tailored around the job I was applying for.

    Interview Questions

    • It is hard going in blind to any type of test, but I'd say the most difficult part was trying not to watch the timer and let my nerves get to me. Anything I couldn't answer in 1.5 min I moved on.   Answer Question
