    Interview

    The recruitment team was keen on just filling the position unless finding a suitable candidate for the position. The client interview was just normal one with basic QA questions and interest to explore new tools.

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CAT Technology in April 2010.

    Interview

    I went through a series of several telephone interviews with an consulting
    firm based in NY. My main
    interest in this firm was the opportunity to leverage my computing and
    analysis background which I
    have developed in the course of receiving a Phd in experimental particle
    physics so as to apply it in a
    more lucrative fashion.
    The principle concerns which I ran into through the interview process
    involved the issue of whether I
    could adapt from the slower, more laborious pace of academic research to the
    fast paced, results
    oriented world of consulting. I was able to convince the recruiter that I
    would be able to make a
    contribution to the firm and that my "big science" background would be an
    asset to the firm due to my
    experience with large collaborations and hard deadlines which HEP requires.
    Ultimately I received an offer from the firm in question, but turned it down
    because I felt that their
    starting salary offer was more appropriate to someone recently out of school
    than to a Phd (who
    admittedly has only recently graduated). I now feel that this was a mistake.
    I've been involved with a
    few hi-tech head hunters since this offer was made and have turned my head
    around somewhat. My
    impression now is that one cant count on the advanced degree to effect one's
    starting level with a
    new firm. Industry treats recent graduates the same independent of their
    academic experience. On the
    other hand, one can hope to leverage the experience (as opposed to the title)
    to rapidly rise toward
    more attractive financial heights.
