    Business Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Singapore University of Social Sciences (Singapore) in December 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was setup for Institute of Adult Learning (Centre for Workplace Learning & Performance - CWLP) and was generally went well until...

    Hiring manager paying too much attention on candidate's knowledge about its initiatives and the organisation's scope of "business" in CWLP, much to the extent of like a close-book examination, rather than focusing on candidate's ability to develop new "customers" i.e. members for its initiative. Isnt interview is best be conduct like a flow of business discussion to evaluate candidate credential ?

    Hiring manager, coming from education domain, don't seem to be aligned with "business-trained" candidate's lingo, and kept correcting words coming from my mouth

    In addition, via the HR to do the forwarding to hiring manager, I have took great pain to craft some of my past work samples for hiring manager to evaluate my foundation for the role but she claimed she didnt receive anything. She replied reviewing my resume is good enough, obviously standing at HR side. Before interview, HR claimed he had forwarded them already. Time spent has been completely wasted ! Disappointed with HR too!
