Had an interview with Irevna yesterday. Selection processes had a GD followed by interview. Did well in both.

Yesterday’s interview drove home two important points:

1. Importance of reasearch about company and industry

2. what companies usually look for is just smart MBAs

I will explain these in my next posts because I cannot disclose some details right now. Interview results will be out next week.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Having been through the interview process, I can tell you what Irevna’s strengths were (in my limited view) and why I did not choose to join them. Please note that this opinion is dated (2 years old).

    All folks I met there were a happy lot. [Some folks I saw with in other companies had sleepy and unhappy faces. That IS a difference] Irevna’s employees I spoke to were happy that they have independence to work with clients. That they have been able to learn a lot (some mentioned that they can accompany their analyst clients to see top managements of companies in India). And that they got enuf pay.

    The thing I was happy about was their flexibility. They were willing to understand my constraints. After interviewed me, they were willing to go to lengths to get me in – I will interpret that as meritocracy. And they were prompt in responding to my questions. However, I did not join them because my short-term career goals were different from what Irevna could offer.

    Irevna or not is a matter of personal choice and compatibility of the company with your strengths. I am sure you understand this and I hope my response is useful to you. If there is anything I can help you with, you can get in touch with me. Good luck.

    The interview was conducted two years back. So I don’t remember all the questions. Broadly, the GD was aimed at figuring out candidates who can build concenses among candidates. And interview was about knowing you, your career aspirations, and why you would want to join them. I had an interview with one of their senior leaders in the company and he helped me clarify what it means to join their company vs some other company. Also he wanted to know why I wanted the role I was looking for.

    Good luck.

    I had a generic topic. Not technical. But that is not an indication of what yours will be.
