Senior Business Analyst
Zürich (Switzerland)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in June 2014.

Interview Details – I was looking for work, saw Cognizant BA jobs on EFC, so I registered on their website. Got a call 2 days later from HR that I wasn't successful for the role that I had applied for but they liked my profile for another role - I am based in London and role is in Zurich, found HR very patient with all my questions re relocation. Had a call with a senior manager, I found the interview fairly easy and straightforward. If you know what you are talking about then you won't find it hard, there are no trick questions. I am expecting a second interview with someone on the Client Business Side.
