- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Hitachi Data Systems in March 2014.Interview Details
I was originally contacted by an internal recruiter from Hitachi Data Systems. We had a couple of initial conversations before I was contacted directly by the hiring VP. The role as originally defined was too limited, in my opinion and experience to accomplish the goals for which it was designed. I was able to discuss my ideas and vision for the role during my interviews and actually inluence change prior to accepting an offer from HDS. I am exactly where I want to be at this point in my career, doing exactly what I love, with an amazing group of people as a result. My role is to develop a department to support the bid response process. Bid strategy, positioning, capture management; the best thing about this is that there isn't some broken archaic or ill-managed process currently in place. There simply is no standardized bid process here at the moment so I have the opportunity to develop that in the right way. I don't have to fix something that is broken, or assume leadership of a department and people that someone else chose and previously managed. I am not inheriting any defined resources or processes. To inherit those, whether they are good or bad, is much more difficult than being able to develop them on my own. I am thrilled that those involved in my hiring process were - first and foremost - great listeners and broad thinkers with the ability and desire to successfully achieve their goals and not focused solely on acquiring personnel to fill a billet.Interview Questions
