    Marketing RFP Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ice Miller (Chicago, IL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring manager for the position approached me on LinkedIn around the middle of June. After corresponding with me via E-mail about my background and interests as they related to the position, she advised me to apply for it online. I did. Three days later, a recruiter called for a brief phone screening. I was then invited into the Chicago office for two hours of video interviews with two other members of the Marketing team. Those interviews seemed to go very well. Before I could prepare Thank You E-mails, the recruiter phoned to inform me that the interviewers "really liked [me]" and to arrange live interviews with four attorneys. I interviewed with two of those attorneys the following Tuesday in downtown Chicago, and two more in Lisle, IL on Wednesday. The final feedback was that "[they] are very, very impressed" with me.

    Eight days later, the recruiter phoned to let me know that the firm would be moving forward with another candidate.

    My favorite things about the Ice Miller interviews:
    1) During each of the four rounds of interviews, I was invited to share BD, content marketing, efficiency and event concepts. Rather than strictly vet me by my past work, the Ice Miller interviewers seemed to evaluate me primarily on ideas brainstormed specifically for the firm.
    2) The interviewers seemed interested in all of my academic and professional experiences, and could easily imagine the relevance of those experiences to the firm. Most employers only want to investigate my undergraduate experience and my penultimate work experience.

    Some ways in which the Ice Miller interview experience could be improved:
    1) DON'T HESITATE TO OFFER REIMBURSEMENT FOR TRAVEL EXPENSES! I think that most of the players in the process weren't aware that Lisle is a day trip from Chicago. The Metra ride into town was well over an hour, and cab fare was $34 round trip. That's quite a pretty penny to spend pursuing a job for which I received a standard rejection.
    2) Their rebranding emphasizes the diversity of their offices. Some of the interviewers mentioned this to me before I did. I would gladly accept the job even if I was the only Black man on a team otherwise comprised of 49 white men who expressed no interest in diversity. But, considering how hard the firm is pushing diversity in their marketing, their interviews should include office tours or personal introductions validating those claims. All 7 interviewers were white, and all of the attorneys were white males age 49 and older. Additionally, after four rounds of interviews concluding with unusually euphoric praise, something more respectful than the standard "We thank you for applying and please continue to check our website for openings" is imperative.
