Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rocket Internet (Claremont, CA) in Nov 2015

Interview

They called. Call dropped multiple times. Skype did not work either, very unprofessional. Afterwards I followed up but did not receive anything back to them. This seems common. The experience was not enjoyable.

Interview

My interview was over a Skype call. The first half of the interview was a mixture of behavioral questions and testing knowledge of the company. The second half consisted of two case study questions. The interviewer was slightly rude at times, but for the most part it was not a big deal.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rocket Internet (Berlin) in Feb 2014

Interview

Two interviews, first with higher level management focused on motivation and behavioural aspects. Second interview with mid-management, case based. The first interview was in english while the second in german; the company culture is clearly german dominant and speaking the language is a big plus. Standard motivational questions (why the job, why the company, why me) and easy market sizing case (based on the company's operations - knowledge of business model helps).

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Rocket Internet in Apr 2012

Interview

Heard about posting through alumni connections, so sent in my resume. Was soon in contact with their international recruiter, a very nice woman, and after an initial informational interview she said she would put me in touch with relevant local offices. Had to wait two whole months before the Singapore office finally got in touch, and in the meantime had gotten much more excited about other opportunities. The interview was a Skype talk without video, with a young and very no-nonsense young woman, who asked about my interest in the business, my relevant experience with entrepreneurship, difficult leadership experiences. She reiterated that the work environment would be very fast-paced. Overall, I didn't have what they were looking for, but I also didn't think I would have liked the experience, so everybody won.
