Managing Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at IBM (Washington, DC).

Interview

Knew hiring manager from previous firm. Offered position prior to speaking with corporate recruiter, who actually was more of hindrance than an asset for the process. I was an experienced hire and was hired some time ago so my experiences are likely not the norm. IBM is currently focused on hiring resources directly out of college with little if any real work experience. Also, hiring outside of traditional STEM disciplines. I've recently seen a recent graduate in "graphics" get a job in Global Business Services - don't know what the think was there...
