This Is An Interview Experience Of A Candidate Who Appeared For The Drive For The Same Post
Dear sir as requested by you i am sharing this experience .I Applied for job through College Recruitment for Business Technology Analyst role at Deloitte
Duration 60 Minutes
Interview Experience The first round was an online test conducted by Aspiring Minds which consisted of 3 sections- Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative and Logical Reasoning. The test is adaptive, similar to GMAT. There is no negative marking. Each section is timed separately and you cannot go back to an attempted question.
Interview Tips The basic approach should be to keep moving on. If you get stuck somewhere, just pick any choice and move on. Attempting all questions is very important in AMCAT since the questions are pretty easy, the real challenge is speed. Remember the difficulty of questions in an exam does not make it easy or difficult, in fact the competition does. Approximately 50-60% of the applicants are rejected after the test.
If you are preparing for CAT or GMAT, you would find the test very easy. Also since the test is adaptive, you might find the difficulty level of questions increase as you walk through the test, do not worry it happens if you are answering correctly and quickly.
Interview Experience 70 students (about 40%) were shortlisted for the second round which was a Case Group Discussion. Groups of 7 were made and we were given a case which is basically a client situation. We were given about 2 minutes to read and understand the case and 4 questions followed the case. The main task was to build a business analytics solution for the client and the requirements for the same. After 2 minutes the interviewer heard from each one of us just to check how well we had understood the case, following which we were given an A1 size sheet and markers. We had to discuss the case among ourselves and keep penning down the main points or whatever we felt was important for the presentation. We were given exactly 10 minutes for planning and solving the case, while the interviewer was quietly sitting and observing us and marking us at the same time. After 10 mins, a new interviewer came in for the presentation wherein we had to discuss whatever we had planned and thought of. Our case consisted of 4 questions, so we had divided the questions among ourselves. Then the main part of the GD began where everything was being noticed and graded. The interviewer had professionally set a timer in his phone for 10 minutes and the GD lasted exactly 10 mins. 3 people out of 7 were selected for personal interviews from our group.
Interview Tips I would advise you to practice some mock cases before sitting for the process. You can find many of them on Youtube. This would really help. In a case GD, speaking too less or too much can get you in trouble. Make sure you speak moderately and do not waste everyone’s time. Be precise and to the the point, that’s what the interviewer wants. Also the profile demands that you speak more about the implementation of the IT solution that you will provide instead of talking about other irrelevant issues. Do not try to dominate the in group, just be courteous to your fellow group members and listen to them carefully when they speak. Do not interrupt someone, let others finish when you wish to speak. You will also be judged on how you work and coordinate with others as a team. These factors do matter but not as much as the relevance of what you speak. Some candidates were rejected solely because I felt they were wasting time and driving the discussion towards off topic issues. Just stick to the questions asked in the case. Speak at a moderate volume so that everyone is able to hear, being too loud won’t help.
Interview Experience My interview lasted 15 minutes and the interviewer seemed pretty impressed. The first question was “Tell me something about yourself”. I began with an introduction about my background, school etc. Then discussed my interests and work experience. Then the interviewer questioned me about my experiences and intership which was purely technical. Then he asked other expected questions like “What do you know about Deloitte”, “Why do you wish to work for Deloitte?” and “Where do you see yourself 3 years from now?”. I had researched about Deloitte pretty well as it was one of my most desired companies. So I could easily explain what Deloitte does and present some facts as well. I explained that the profile they were offering required perfect balance of software skills and non technical skills. I possessed them, I liked solving cases and analyzing data so I would fit in this role perfectly. Since my coding skills were not great but affluent for this job and I would always want a job which requires interaction with the client instead of sitting in front of a PC all the time, coding. I would also love to solve problems on a large scale and see Fortune 500 companies implement my solutions. In the near future, I would wish to get promoted to a Consultant from BTA as soon as possible. The interviewer was pretty impressed with my answer and then he asked some very simple programming questions. One I remember was to check if a string is a palindrome. I explained each and every step while building the algorithm. I think all he wanted to hear was the approach and I was not even asked to write any code. Then I was asked about my internship and the role I played there. I interned at a start up as the Associate Product Architect, so I explained everything and what I had learnt there working in a team. Then I was asked a guess estimation question which was again pretty simple. Overall the interview was more of an HR interview rather than technical.
Interview Tips I would advice you to be confident and always have eye contact with the interviewer. There are various parameters on which you will be graded so do not worry if you mess up something or are not able to answer a particular question because you can always recover. You are there to convince the interviewer that if he/she hires you, you would really be an asset to the company. The most important thing is researching and understanding the company before you go for the HR interview. The more you know about the company, the happier the interviewer would be. Also, research and figure how you would fit in the role offered by them. The was biggest mistake I made while sitting for other companies likes ZS Associates was that I didn’t do my research work well due to lack of time and was rejected in the last round.
