Associate Partner Interview

Associate Partner

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at IBM.

Interview Details – I was an employee referral into the SAP practice. Initial contact from recruiter via email. Technical screening interview by phone. In person interview in office. There were four other people being interviewed on the same day, we were told that we were not competing for the same positions. Expected the In Person interview to be with a Partner but it was not. Decision then made by "Senior Panel".

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Interview generally about recent experience.   Answer Question
