IBM Consulting 2016 - My Journey from Application to Offer

IBM

#581

I had my assessment centre 18th September 2014 and was under business review from 20th September. It felt like the longest wait ever but I was made an offer 3rd December!

Good luck and stay positive :slight_smile:


#582

Thanks for your feedback :slight_smile: Did you apply for the Business Specialist role?


#583

I applied for the Business Consultant role :slight_smile:


#584

I applied for Business Consltant early 2015 start and passed my AC on the 18th November, still heard nothing


#585

I applied for the Business Specialist role, late 2015 start. Haven’t heard anything different apart from generic emails every so often (used to be every 2 weeks) saying they are still trying to suit me to a role.

I had my assessment centre late October and have been under business review since early November.

yah, same thing as me during my final interview, i thought they will tell me on the spot that i landed the job but there was none of that. the interviewer just said " the hr will be the one to contact you" then last april 24 i received an email from the hr that i passed the final interview but their still securing some documents before they can proceed with the job offer, i mean, how much long will i have to wait!!!


#587

Hi, could you tell me a bit about the matching interview and the service line it was for? I have passed the matching interview for SAP during my assessment centre but got a call today that they re-matched me for Oracle instead so I will be heaving a phone interview on Thursday but no idea what to prepare for it. Thanks for help!


#589

I am in the same situation, had a matching interview during AC but today I got called that they matched me to different service line so I have to interview again. Hi, could you tell me a bit about the matching interview - types of questions, how much did they expected you to know about the line, etc. - and the service line your interview was for? Thanks!

Hi, I will be having an Assessment Centre on 8th May, for the Strategic Analytics Consulting role. Could you possibly give me some ideas and tips about excelling in the Assessment Centre? I would deeply appreciate that!

Hello! So I’ve just been invited in for a 45 min interview to assess my suitability for Global Technology Services. I applied to the position of Business Specialist and so am a little confused as I would have thought I would be seen by the Global Business Services team, not the technology team. Does anyone know if Business Specialists work within the Global Technology Services and is it easy to move across from GTS to GBS? I’m more interested in Business/ Consultancy work than implementation…

It said in my email that I should ‘prepare personal competency and technical responses as well as brushing up on your knowledge of Global Technology Services.’ Has anyone attended a similar interview? Do you know what is involved?

Thanks for your help! :slight_smile:

Hi there,

I’ve also been invited to a 45 minute interview with GTS and I also applied for the Business Speciliast role late start 2015. My interview is on May 20th.

I think IBM are just suiting us to the role they feel we will be most valuable in, but I’ve also heard of successful, we will have the opportunity to move around the business units.

If you’re interview is on the same day, it would be nice to get in touch :slight_smile:


#593

Hi, same here - got an interview on the 20th

hope it goes well for everyone, it’;s been a long wait!


#594

For anybody interested, it took IBM 4 weeks to get back to me after my final telephone interview. I got an offer so I guess it was worth the wait!


#595

I had my Assessment Day on 12 May and have been told I passed the interviews. I had a great matching interview on the day and was told a lot about the role - but I’m looking to defer to Sept 2016. I was told in both the HR interview and the matching interview that this was not a problem.

Now been waiting a couple of weeks to hear back anything else. From reading a little around a few forums it seems a little random as to how long it takes for IBM to get back to you. This mostly seems to be for a very good reason - the whole business matching process is really good for a grad scheme and I understand this takes a while.

It just seems strange that having had such a good matching interview, its taking so long to hear anything official back.


#596

Don’t worry about it too much - there are a lot of strange things about the amount of waiting required for IBM. We just have to assume at this point that they will eventually get around to sorting everything out!


#597

Thanks. Had some bizarre correspondence with the grad assessment emails. They have told me they don’t know the outcome of my interview. And they’re unsure whether they are supposed to be finding Mr another interview. But havent and won’t ring the business line to find out.
