    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little interesting and novel to me.
    Cognizant: Applied for a position via LinkedIn and got a phone screening from HR the next week. Just basic HR questions. Then a phone interview with the Director, where he asked about my background and technical skills. He stated that there will be multiple interviews with the client for the position, and prepped me a little bit on it. It was useful.

    Client: 2 Phone interviews with the hiring managers. Then onsite interview with more members of the team.
