What did I enjoy doing the best in my career to date?

1 Answer

I told them what I enjoyed the most (i.e. Business Partnering in a way to gain analysis to the business drivers). I was told that I would not like the job and did I want to carry on after a few minutes! The interviewer was actually quite rude at this point, saying how I has not read the job spec correctly and that my CV experience did not match the requirements (why on earth did they select me for interview in the first place?). I tried to get back on track, but at that point I was asked if I had any questions (which meant the interview was over). I asked a technical question which was answered, then we terminated the interview. A really nasty experience, I would never go back to CooperVision.
