    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Rocket Internet.

    Interview

    The best possible outcome. I interview with Oliver. He was inspiring and spoke to my whole MBA class. I got a job offer from him and his partner and then went to start Lazada. After that, I had a chance to work with other companies globally and in the HQ in Berlin, one of the great world class cities I got to visit.

    Rocket is so special because you are always interviewing and always have great opportunities globally. If you want more than a suit and tie and 9-5, then be ready for this challenge and you can make your own story as an entrepreneur.

    They called. Call dropped multiple times. Skype did not work either, very unprofessional. Afterwards I followed up but did not receive anything back to them. This seems common. The experience was not enjoyable.
