Online Marketing Specialist - SMB's was asked...28 February 2013

Let's pretend you are sending out emails to encourage SMB's to advertise with Facebook. Each email to each SMB costs $1. After you send the emails, .5% of the SMBs sign up. How much did you pay for each person that signed up? I had to keep asking clarification questions. "How many people did I send to?" Then he said, "Let's pretend there were 1,000." Then I got the answer from there... I believe it's just a way to assess how you think and not exactly to get the correct answer.

The person above would have been right, but s/he used the wrong number. 5% is .05. 0.5% is .005. It is $200. Regardless, still don't vote for trump. Less

There's no need to know how many emails were sent. 200 emails for every 1 signup, and $1 for every email, means $200 for every 1 signup. Less

What is your expected salary for this position

3 Answers

Specialist positions are fairly junior at RIM, so yes, six figures is too high. In Canada a specialist would make between 55k and 75k at the very most. Less

Thanks for the feedback - the recruiter never indicated it was a junior position. I have heard from ex-colleagues that RIM's payscale is lower than at my previous employers. Less

I said six figures which was clearly waaaaaay too much because that was pretty much the end of the conversation! Less

If we were to assign you a task using keynote and you had never used this application before, how would you go about completing this task?

I suggested that I would first try to figure out using keynote on my own and if I needed I help I would not hesitate to ask questions. Less

I would visit the Keynote Website and ask for a free trial and go through all tutorials available. If needed, I would call the company Keynote with any questions that I had relative to the Keynote software and then I would go to my supervisor with questions specific to the company. Less

I would first seek their support on how to do it using the keynote. If that was not possible or didn't work, I will then Google it and find tutorials & videos on how to achieve these tasks. Less
