Consultant interview questions shared by candidates
What is a class?
Just because you have years of programming experience, doesn't mean you won’t be asked entry-level question. Prepare for this.
This is a reasonable question for a senior person - you should be able to explain basics to a client, manager or junior person. So a answer could be: A class is a group of objects with shared properties. Using classes reduces time needed for new coding and simplifies changes.
Take responsibility for your actions. For someone with that much experience, you can't answer this stupid question? I do interviews and hires and if you gave me that lame excuse, I would terminate the interview on the spot. Every resume I look at looks the same (same experience, job titles, job responsibility). You need to make the difference in the interview, this is what distinguish you from the other 100 candidates. Hate to say it but, with the economy the way it is, it is easier to be choosy on who I hire.
No traditional business cases. They'll ask questions about experience and relationships with others you've worked with. They'll want to know if you're open to travel and are likely to stay with them for several years at least. They're looking for calm confidence, the ability to take charge, and they will want to have a sense that it will be fun to work with you.
