Interviewing for a new role can be a stressful experience for many of us, but there are things you can do to improve your chances of passing the interview with flying colors.
Rishi and I recently sat down for a mock interview where Rishi talked to us about his experiences and skills. In this interview, I played the role of the hiring manager and asked the types of questions that interviewers would normally ask of a senior business analyst.
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS WE COVERED
- Tell us a little about your self.
- Can you talk a little about a project where things have not gone so well?
- What is your approach for dealing with stakeholders who don’t understand their own business needs well?
- How do you deal with a situation when two director level executives disagree on what your project should be delivering?
- Can you talk about your experiences working with a development team that has high expectations from their business analysts?
- Can you tell me a little about how your programming background factors into your business analysis career?
- On a larger project that requires the involvement of a business analysis team, do you see yourself as more of a team member or more of a BA team lead?
- Would you be comfortable managing more junior analysts on such a project?
