    Average Interview


    Overall the experience was positive. Although I realized during the interview with the CMO that I wasn’t going to be selected. The HR person was absent for more than a week and suddenly sent an email saying he will have updates next week as they are going through the interview process. He did come back 2 days later and said they were selecting other candidates with more B2C experience. That’s fine, I felt that the email was sent just to be keep me warm as a backup candidate. Seeing that this role is still unfilled, at this time, I would suggest this company scale down the requirements. No one is going to be an expert in data science and google analytics/google tag manager and also knowledgeable about bridging multiple data sources to do reporting across multiple marketing channels. Even if someone like that exist I am pretty sure they are well compensated in much better situation and not considering employment in a smaller company. Be realistic in your expectations. Anyone claiming to know all of these is sure selling you snake oil.
