Fragen aus Vorstellungsgesprächen für project coordinator, von Bewerbern geteilt
Interview only lasted 15 min over the phone. It was a conference call from professionals at the headquarter and in regional and local offices. The questions were not too surprising: I had to present my self, explain my understanding of the position and justify my readiness to move to a developing country. The trickiest question was about cultural differences and how to overcome them. I was asked how I perceived the challenges of working with government representatives from developing countries.
I summarised my approach a bit bluntly by saying that under such conditions it was making a lot of sense to first listen, listen and then listen again about their needs and constrains before I'd propose a way forward. To be honest I was unsure I had convinced them I would be the right person for the job at the end of the interview even thought I was sure I had given a quite coherent perspective of how I would embark on this assignment if selected.
