    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Forrester (New Delhi) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call from linkedin application. The HR was fantastic to say the least- respectful, informative and very engaging. After a round of interview with the HR I was scheduled to be on a telephonic interview with the hiring manager based out of Singapore.
    Step 1 : I am skipping the HR round as I consider that to be more of a review of my profile and a confirmation of interest. The meeting with the hiring manager was scheduled for 45 minutes. It went really well (or it appeared to) . It was never a skill assessment interview rather a two way process
    Step 2 : Interview with Senior Consultant (based out of Singapore again), another high grade knowledge sharing exchange
    Step 3 : Interview with Sales Manager based out of India, here , the interview landscape mode tilted back to assessment but more of a profile assessment!, at the end the of it the business model, operations was so well explained that I thought I am already there, :)
    Step 4 : Interview with Research VP, this one was a little off the hook, but gradually the interviewer and me got engaged in a better dialogue bringing back the flavor of getting to know each other better
    Step 5 & 6 : Case presentation and Playbook presentation- this needed a lot of preparation and I guess I did justice to it! It was attended by several key folks in their New Delhi office and the hiring manager over VC
    Couple of folks the HR & the hiring manager deserves a lot of accolades for conducting such a smooth ( and long) process in the best way possible! The only change what might be needed is making those interviews a little longer to help candidates express themselves (it was way too short - 30 mins), also this meant that by the profile discussion is over you are done with the time.

    Interview Questions

    • Profile review was the key part of the process, with each interviewer it took more than half of the time in walking through the profile
      Situational questions were the other key aspect, such as challenges, difficulty, etc.
      One interviewer went on to ask questions on research - primary & secondary
      Case questions : Very disappointing in that part, the folks on call hardly asked any questions, in the room there was just one VP he did ask a few questions and off course the hiring manager
      Playbook: Unfortunately the hiring manager was not familiar with the particular playbook (that might have hurt my chances, maybe) but the way he answered my questions ( though he knew by then that he is not recruiting me) was surreal and excellent   1 Answer
