Advice to Management
Learn from your mistakes and do not cost anyone else their jobs. Lots of people were hit hard by the errors at 2e2 and I hope it never happens again.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 2e2 (London, England (UK)) in July 2011.
The hiring process initiated with a brief phone call which described the job and asked whether I could submit an up to date CV and complete a short task relevant to the job role. After submitting the email I was contacted the next day asking whether I could attend an interview the following week. The interview was very informal and relaxed. On arrival at Gillingham street I signed in at reception, was offered a cup of tea/coffee by the receptionist and waited in the reception area for 5 minutes. The interview had very few direct questions other than why I wanted to work at 2e2 and what I expected out of it. The interview primarily consisted of a discussion on the job specification and how I could contribute to 2e2 and the Marketing team. I was asked what knowledge I had on 2e2's capabilities and 2e2's target sectors listed in the specification. I was offered the job the same day. I was informed that black flags for the process included spelling mistakes in my application and lying about qualifications or IT competency.
