Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at IBM in May 2014.

Interview Details

Online application, followed by telephone interview and assessment centre (three interviews and group exercise). The process was well-structured and a good deal of context was given about the firm at each stage. The initial telephone interview focussed on identifying broad skills overlap with the firm and determining rapport. The assessment centre then probed more deeply, testing team work, presentation, analytical and communication skills and assessing capabilities from a business and technical point of view.

Interview Questions
  • Technical interview questions are very thorough and probe a wide range of practical expertise. it's important to have plenty of practical examples to mention and to be able to explain them clearly and simply.   View Answer

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at IBM in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    IBM in-house recruiter found me on LinkedIn and messaged me asking if I would be interested in a role at IBM.

    I had 2 x phone interview, one with the in-house recruiter which I passed and then one with a department lead which I also passed.

    I was then invited to the AC where we did a group case study and had 2 x face-to-face interviews, one was a technical interview and one was a partner interview. As long as you know your stuff you'll be fine.
