I had previous experience, so I was able to answer affirmatively.
Hello. I have an interview scheduled for this position very soon. I was wondering if you could tell me some additional questions that were asked during the phone interview? Also, were you hired after completing the phone interview or did you have to conduct another interview in person? I appreciate any information you can give me regarding the interview process. Thank you so much!
Assuming the U.S. population is about 300 million people and further assuming that about 10% of those people are sick or hurt at any given time, that gives 30 million people. If we then assume that about one-tenth of those who are sick or hurt typically require hospitalization, then that's 3 million hospital beds in the U.S.. The figure could also be estimated from the average occupancy and vacancy rates of hospitals in the U.S., if we also know the corresponding average number of occupied and vacant beds as well as the number of total number of hospitals.
A pharmaceutical company with no R&D labs has a new product for post-surgical treatment with solid revenue projections. The company would like to grow, but not so quickly that it would become an attractive acquisition target. What should they do?
The company should look for another product to sell that leverages its existing connections in the medical market. An ideal product would be a fully-developed generic drug that perhaps lacks a good sales force or marketing channels. Product acquisition can be financed by an equity raise or a debt issue.
There are two main segments: surgery/trauma patients and regular transfusion patients. The surgery/trauma patient segment has a highly variable need, but is arguably the larger segment. The regular transfusion patient segment has a more consistent need, but may be more concerned with blood quality and thus more willing to pay a premium for it.
Assuming that there are about 10 million people in Manhattan and Brooklyn who want to cross. Further assume that 80% of those people want to cross by car, and one-sixteenth of those 800,000 people will carpool. Thus, 750,000 cars cross per day. There are about 25 hours in a day so that's 30,000 cars per hour. If we assume that the bridge has four lanes, that 7,500 cars per lane per hour.
The case was not particularly difficult but during the presentation the senior staff will ask lots of tough questions and put you on the spot. For example, they asked me how much my case solution would cost and how long it would take to implement.
When applying to different universities and institutions of higher education, I take into consideration the schools mission statement and the values that it adheres to. I apply to schools whose mission I can support - so when decisions get made, they will most likely go back to the core mission of the school, which would be a mission I have bought into.
