    International Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wageningen UR (Wageningen (Netherlands)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position and after three days the hiring manager called me back to make an appointment for the interview.

    I was interviewed by what would have been my future boss (the senior project manager) and by the coordinator of the research group.

    The interviewers made me feel really confortable and insisted very much on my technical skills and presented me question covering practical cases that I would have faced on a daily basis on the job (partner not responding to messages, conflict inside the managing team and practical issues of project management). Moreover I was asked to briefly describe how woud i have structured a project to develop a supply chain for export of an agricultural product.

    The interview ended with some motivational questions and some general information about my profile.

    I ended up second but all in all the experience was great. I learned a lot about myself and understood what level i could aim for the future
