Tips from Experienced Hire F1Y

Success Story:

Thanks for all the help from the websites and your daily blog.

As an experienced professional, the process is just the same. But for me, I had a full day of interviews and the PST (first and final rounds combined). I got the verbal job offer that evening.

So just a few items of feedback.

You have talked about the parade approach. I had 12 situations prepared and in each interview did one in full and used elements of others. Each interviewer was very clear telling me not to reuse a situation. Equally each interviewer asked for something slightly different. So candidates need to have several situations prepared and not just enough for one per interview.

I have been practising the PST and felt quite comfortable going in. My feedback is the same as you have mentioned before. Tough, just got finished, no time to check and not a clue how well I had done. Thanks for all the tips and practice.

Finally, math practice is critical for both the cases and the PST. I cannot tell you how effective the math practice site is. I used it for about 4 weeks 10 to 15 minutes per day. Always estimation, random and hard. I went from being average to virtually top 20% in terms of accuracy and speed. I cannot underestimate how valuable going from 5 to 9 per minute is. It buys you so much time.

I appreciate the help!
