    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed on campus first with a Hitachi manager. Then the second round consisted of three interviews at the company site. My first round interview contained a brief case as well as one of the second round interviews. Within a week of the second round interview, I received an offer and given two weeks to decide.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the interview questions were too difficult. One case question was "Create an algorithm to make a Sudoku board". This was challenging but as long as you display a favorable way of thinking and presenting your thoughts in an appropriate amount of time, you will do great, regardless of whether you actually solve the question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not attempt to negotiate salary because the offer was the best I received. I was however able to extend my deadline in order to hear back from another firm.

    Interview Details

    Applied on the university job board. Got scheduled for an on-campus interview for 45 minutes where I went over my resume and cool side projects.

The next round was a case question onsite and then a couple interviews onsite as well.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hitachi Consulting in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went to career forum that was organized in Tokyo, where Hitachi had a stall. It was a walk in interview type of a format. From the walk in interview the candidates were shortlisted and narrowed down. After that, you would be invited to their corporate office and go through one more round of the interview. Nothing new - pretty much the focus is on your resume.
