Partner interview questions shared by candidates
Mostly competency based, i.e. tell me about a tine when you had to deliver under tight deadlines and conflicting priorities.
They are very open to the standard off-the-shelf STAR model answers, especially at junior level, but I think individuality and originality will also get you brownie points, as long as the answer is genuine and situation a sincere difficulty, not a made up generic one.
First role play is individual. The scenario is that you are a rep for B.C and you're at a trade show. You have to present yourself to a new hotel with the objective of getting them to use B.C as their OTA. They currently use a competitor. The key here is to ASK QUESTIONS. As many as you can think of. Don't do what I did and start throwing facts and figures at them. Establish their market and strategy first and apply the facts accordingly. Who is their ideal customer (holiday makers or corporate), what is their main focus (filled rooms of just mere footfall). I couldn't stop talking (and this is why I wasn't hired). As they finish up, try hard to get a meeting scheduled to come and see them at a later date. Be pushy. I wasn't.
