一大早出门，到的时候已经有几个ggjj在了。大家相互介绍了下，都是很nice的人，开始前大概讨论了下主要有什么问题，比如team spirit啦，time management啦。这个时候交了简历什么的，每人一个大信封，放在里面。
as member of the committee (members are from different functions), please suggest 5 strategies to fulfill one of the three objectives the telecom company wants to achieve to expand their market globally. note that the company is a leading company in the domestic market and its main product are private communication systems and information systems. the three objectives are:
1.reduce the product’s time to market;
2.differentiate the product in innovation, quality and customer service;
3.build a diversified (culture and background) workforce in international market.
本来之后还有个q&a的环节。可是。。。可是。。。那个板着脸的manager居然说"we have no question, you can leave this room now.”我晕，这不是就被赶出来了么。。。
details and tips in each session:
1. before the assessment: we needed to fill a form to submit our cv and transcripts first. the hr manager also asked us to reconsider our application regarding the departments since consulting is very competitive and they always prefer experienced candidates. audit hires the most and tax is the second largest hiring department. then she read the instructions. note that we can not ask any questions in later sessions until the q&a session when they will ask us about our proposed strategies. we also had to make a brief self-introduction, which included name, university, major and the reason why you choose deloitte. zd.54yjs.cn
2. self reading: read the instructions carefully, note that “do not divide the whole group into sub groups!”, “focus on only one objective”, etc.
3. group discussion:
? pay special attention to the time management. in our case, we all agreed to have one of us keep an eye on the timing and keep reminding us of the time. so we did great in time management and the interviewers praised us for this as well.
? everyone should participate. make sure nobody is silent in the process and everyone has the chance to contribute. luckily, members in our group are all very active and we had a great time in brain storming. after the interview, the hr manager told me that the most important attribute they are looking for in group assessment is “team spirit”. so do remember that this is not “one- man show”.
? clarify the objective and framework first before discussion. our group agreed to my proposal, which is based on the three differentiators: innovation, quality and customer service. then under each differentiator we talked about the strategies relating to functional departments. it worked well and i think we were very clear in the logical thinking and discussion. zd.54yjs.cn
? leave enough time for presentation preparation. we left 10 minutes for preparation, the first 5 minutes for group discussion and the last 5 minutes for each one to prepare their parts. (note that the interviewer said we should not do this since this is sub grouping! luckily we performed well as a group anyway. )
