    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sumitomo Corporation (London, England (UK)) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had about 4 interviews with Sumitomo Corporation Europe, true to Japanese culture they were very thorough. Which was a good thing for both parties involved. few interviews were general skills and meeting HR, competency based questions and a few technical questions in relation to the role. Couple other interviews were more focused and requested a presentation of reports explaining information in the report. After some negotiation and a long time taken to make the decision an offer was made.
