Director, Marketing Strategy & Automation was asked...10 February 2019

How do you do this, how do you do that, how, how and how, and never a why question.

3 Answers

Vague as possible because I sensed he was conducting interviews only for free consultation purpose. If you conduct an interview, don't feel bad about not getting a single response, just monitor this company's employee list and you will note that the position was never actually being offered. Less

What are your ideas for new products?

1 Answers

This is a stupid question. It is a disservice to the company to make up uninformed ideas, yet this seemed important to them. We can't discover new products without knowing what the market needs - anything else is just guessing, and that usually isn't productive or profitable. Less

Asked several different ways and times: How do you get clients to buy into something that they do not want to do?

1 Answers

Not only do you not know what this “something” is; you don’t know who this client is, you don’t know what your relationship is like, you don’t know why they don’t want to do it, maybe it is their budget. Needless to say, there were a lot of “it depends” in my answers. My advice would be to rephrase the question and fill in the details. Respond with something like: “Do you mean how do you get an existing client of more than 5 years to buy into an aggressive online advertising strategy?” Then answer that question. Essentially ask your own questions and answer them it will be an easier way to go. Less

Hitachi Vantara

Would I join the Organization and Transformation practice or the Business Strategy practice?

1 Answers

This surprised me as well, as most strategy projects have some measure of change management or organizational transformation inherent within them--the split between the two struck me as unusual. I answered by discussing the strategy projects I'd worked on (I was interviewing for Business Strategy) and also emphasized how important it was for these practice areas to work together Less
