    • Imagine that you are creating a monitoring solution for your service. What characteristics, key performance indicators, or output would you consider in determining the availability of the service to your end clients?   Answer Question
    • Parse a file containing multiple groups of IP addresses and print out only the group of IP addresses that match the label "Houston" which should be hard coded in your function for this particular exercise. The group name will be on its own line and will be unique in the input file. Each IP address will be on its own line in the input file. The file can contain blank lines. The function should output the IP addresses comma separated. Input: A sample inventory file which may contain various text and comments along with valid and invalid IP addresses. For example: [Dallas] 10.20.30.40 10.20.30.41 10.40.20.1 [Houston] 9.20.30.5 9.30.4.10 [Seattle] 172.10.2.35 Output: The list of IP addresses separated by commas. With "Houston" hard coded as the label, the output of the above example should be:\ 9.20.30.5,9.30.4.10   Answer Question
    • Using the Fibonacci sequence, print out a lower case letter (from the English alphabet) the number of times of the Fibonacci number in the corresponding index. A number in the Fibonacci sequence is calculated by: n[x-2] + n[x-1] = n[x] The sequence starts with n[1] = 1 and n[2] = 1. The index begins at 1, not 0. Be careful of off by 1 errors. You do not have to worry about exceeding the English alphabet s max index of 26. Example: Input: 5 Letter = e Fibonacci number n[5] = 5 Output: eeee Input: A single integer. Output: A number of lower case letters as described above.   Answer Question
    • Often there is a need to run a task across a set of machines. The list of IP addresses for these machines could come from different sources and therefore be in different formats. Starting with a file that contains mainly IP addresses, one per line, your task is to write a function that converts the list of IP addresses into a comma separated list of IP address, ignoring any line that starts with a # and ignoring any line that does not contain a valid IP address. Input: A sample inventory file which may contain various text and comments along with valid and invalid IP addresses. For example: [zone1] 10.171.102.174 #10.171.102.195 10.171.102.182 [zone2] 10.171.3.172 10.171.3.21 #10.171.3.224 Output: The list of IP addresses separated by commas. For the above example, that would be: 10.171.102.174,10.171.102.182,10.171.3.172,10.171.3.21   Answer Question

    IBM GBS Consulting By Degrees Entry Level Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred in by a partner and worked with the head recruiter of the program who took weeks to reply back mostly after the second or third follow-up. I was initially contacted by e-mail to speak on the phone with the HR person and we went from there. I was then given an intended month and kept in touch for three months next, I was given an intended date for the month after and the hr personnel still wasn't able to schedule anything. I then finally got a date but still needed more information such as time and location which I didn't find out up till a day before the interview, that was when I also found out that the person that was supposed to conduct my case study had a client emergency and so I would have to do well on both the behavioral parts in order to take the case study. A few minutes before the interview while I was setting up and not thinking about checking my email, I got an email from the hr person saying she didn't know if she provided me with this information already and she apologizes if she already did but the second one will be a phone one. after waiting for the second person on hireview, the webcam app they used for the interview, I went to my email and saw that I would be getting a call and called the second interviewer back after two minutes of her calling me. This second interviewer who was under the entertainment and media consulting umbrella had a rude tone, was chewing something while asking me questions and did not know that the company no longer has a mission statement and really work off of their values. She had been with the company for seven years. I then followed up with my Hr person thanking her for the interview and asking her for the interviewer's emails and didn't get a reply, followed up a week after and then got a default E-mail three weeks later saying I didn't get into the program. I was really excited about this opportunity, and not to discredit the first interviewer who was also a partner, consulting for the fin-tech industry and was absolutely amazing, professional and very smart, the HR person and the second interviewer was a complete disappointment and not what I expected from IBM.
