Interview processThe initial phone interview consisted of asking me about my knowledge of the company, so what their business model was, how they generate income, what I like or maybe don't like about their service. They then proceeded to test my language skills since they were looking for someone with good Swedish language skills, and asked what I thought some of the trends in the Swedish market was, who their biggest competitors might be etc.
The face-to-face interview was with a woman in the Marketing department and a guy in the Commercial department. They handed me a piece of paper with a scenario on it, I got some time to read it through, and then they proceeded with asking me questions regarding how I would increase revenue, broaden the market and retain current customer base, all based on my own knowledge and the information on the paper.
Most difficult questionSome of the Marketing questions regarding the scenario were difficult, since I suspected they wanted quite specific answers.
Interview tipsResearch the company thoroughly, especially news coverage. Analyse what you think their strategy and business model is. Use their service, I did and when they asked me to tell them specifically what I liked about their service I could tell them what I thought since I'd used it. Be yourself, and don't think that you need to know everything. They'll be able to assess whether you have the right sort of thinking for the company by the questions that they ask and how you answer. By using a scenario instead of competency based questions, you might feel like you're thrown into the unknown, but it's good because they'll get a much better sense of who you are since you won't be able to practice your answers.
