Interview

I got a video interview invitation via email and prepared a lot for it before actually shooting videos. I thought there would be at least 5 questions but it turned out to be only two (Please introduce yourself and why recruitment). The good thing was that you can record your answers as many times as you want.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo) in May 2021

Interview

A complete waste of time - 20 minute interview with HR who was dressed unprofessionally in a white T-shirt and seemed more interested in drinking her coffee than the interview itself. I knew at the end of the interview that I wasn't progressing as she seemed dismissive and commented she would 'see if anyone else in another department wanted to interview me' rather than recommending me for any particular area despite my experience. I received a rejection email two days later stating my background wasn't what they were looking for (then why bother to interview me, you knew my background from my resume and asked no further questions about it in the interview) and that they had an abundance of 'strong candidates'. These candidates must have been so strong and exceptional that Robert Walters re-advertised the position a few days later. The interviewer went on about how a successful recruiter must be honest, so how about giving some constructive feedback to your candidates on what they could improve rather than a generic standard rejection letter.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked standard questions such as why did you come to Japan, what motivates you, why recruiting, why Robert Walters etc.

The process took about 4 months. The interviews were all held online due to COVID-19. I was rejected after my fourth round of interview (including the pre-recorded video interview). For the last interview result, I had to wait for more than three weeks, which was quite stressful. Apart from that, it was overall a positive experience for me.

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Ōsaka, Osaka, Osaka) in Sep 2019

Interview

I applied through their site as a recruitment consultant. I was contacted by a talent acquisition specialist who was very enthusiastic throughout the call. The interview was with three managers. They were very nice throughout the interview and accommodating to my questions. Unfortunately, I did not get an offer, but the experience helped me reflect on my approach to interviews. What you need to bring with you to the interview: -A strong set of examples as to how you fit the job of a recruiter (recruiting is a difficult job, has a high turnover rate, late hours, and is full of rejections) be able to talk about life examples where you have handled rejection and displayed persuasion, persistence, tenacity in difficult situations. The majority of the questions (if you are just beginning your career) are based on what is your understanding of recruiting, how you fit, and what experiences you have to prove that. You are likely best off not mentioning the "humanistic" side of recruitment and show you are fit for the sales side of it. There were no questions about being money-driven as other reviewers had mentioned, but you are best off showing through example that you are motivated by numbers.

Interview Questions
  • Can you give an example of a situation or experience where you had to persuade someone something, and how did you do it? What do you think recruiting is? Have you faced rejection and how did you recover? What is your greatest achievement? How do you handle the mistakes you've made? How do you manage your time? Give examples. What are some characteristics recruiters need to have?
