Earlier this year, we held a series of onsite SQL training sessions for our Systems Analysts with more than 40 colleagues advancing their SQL skills. Additionally, the training provided valuable engagement and collaboration opportunities.

Several attendees were able to immediately apply skills learned. They were able to add hints to long running queries that improved performance, and solving a production report issue by using a SQL variable technique, demonstrated in the session. Even our most seasoned SQL professionals found the training valuable.

Session facilitators were very accommodating, and after soliciting feedback, geared the training toward topics of particular interest.

 "I’m thrilled we were able to provide this training opportunity, which will enable colleagues to do their job better and more efficiently. This is important for both the quality of work and morale."

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Associated Banc-Corp.


    It was extremely quick and they told me there was no discussion about my pay. Made it perfectly clear about that. I felt that was a big red flag if they made that a point right away with someone.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about my goals and how I see myself growing with the company. It made sense to try and peg someone who would stay around for a long time.   1 Answer
