    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty standard interview with an introduction of what they do and what IBM does, then ask about whether I know about this position. Then there are resume based questions and relevant experience questions. No behaviorals, but there are 2 case problems. Simple though.

    3 telephone interviews. 1 behavioral, 1 technical and 1 with manager. Very helpful when I was stuck during a tough Sql injection question. Was able to provide my experience to help show that I was still an entry level hire.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Entry level business analytics consultant (CbD): The process wasn't difficult. I went through university hire and there were 3 rounds. Of those rounds, they consisted of a case study type of answer and question, personality and behavioral (asked about resume, other questions, etc.). I ended up receiving an offer fairly soon and accepted it because the position seemed promising and challenging.
