    I sent my CV for a position of intern in Business Performance Services, it's like internal consulting, as they don't hire other consulting firms. I had 3 1:1 interviews. They went through my CV and asked questions: case (estimate market of office buildings in Moscow; explain why company has decreasing income, while number of clients is growing (company is of course IT)), some simple problems on probability with coins.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    You got taken around their winchester location and sat down first thing for a mathematical test to ensure you didn't cheat on the online test. After that, you have lunch and you have two interviews in the afternoon, one technical interview and one with HR. You also get thrown in a group and asked to solve an issue to see how you fare in group work.

    Interview Questions
    • When we were thrown in a group we needed to work out a problem. To do this we all sat around and looked at it individually opposed to properly working as a group.   View Answer

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at IBM in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview is mainly on my research experience. I introduced my previous research project experience. And the interviewer asked a lot of details, ranging from idea, architecture, implementation to experimental results. The interviewer introduced their proposed project and the responsibility in finishing this project. Overall, the interview is very pleasant.
