Technology Consultant I Interview

Technology Consultant I

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

Interview Details – I was called by Hewlett Packard after giving my resume three times. I was only interviewed once by the manager. She didn't ask me any technical questions but rather about my achievements and what I contributed to my last job. If I recall correctly she asked me what I wanted to do in 5 years for my career, and what I was interested in for the job. Note I didn't know what the career was when I applied.

Negotiation Details – I didn't try to negotiate. For me the salary was okay as compared to my last one.
