Interview Details I got a call from the hiring manager at IMS health. He asked me if would be willing to attend an interview for the position of an Analyst. I inquired about the company and he mentioned that it was related to pharmaceuticals. I being from a computer science background asked him as to how I could be of help in such a company, he told me that the job requires certain skill that a computer science engineer posses. Nevertheless, I agreed and the interview was scheduled for the next day. What happened the day of the interview was surprising and funny. The first question they ask me is the reason I have applied for a job that requires a life sciences background!
