Question 2 of 25
Great communication skills are critical when working as an IT Consultant. Walk me through a time when you were successful in communicating with a person that was difficult to work with, and under difficult circumstances?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Throughout corporate America, you'll find your garden variety of different personalities from strategic thinkers, passive aggressive profiles, and of course your ego maniacs. Dealing with difficult people is an art. There's a few ways you can learn to adapt to an environment, culture and difficult circumstances without compromising the success of the project. First, start with the common issues that a difficult person will present to you. He/she will likely try to take credit for the work you completed, or blame you for missing their deadlines. An easy way to handle this is to explain that even though they blamed you, you have no ill will towards them, and actually offered to help with their project so they could get caught up. Another approach is to summarize the issue, then explain that you communicated with the other person and spent time with them to solve the problem.

Question 3 of 25
Tell me about the deployment/business models we could offer to our clients.
Click To View Answer
How to Answer
There are business/deployment layers that are offered by most cloud service providers and/or IT vendors - Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and SaaS (Software as a Service).

There are less common ones such as Communication as a Service (CaaS), Database as a Service (DaaS), etc. that may be relevant to Emtec or its clients. Based on the role/group, do your research into more niche models which could or should be considered.

How to Answer
The best way to discuss your salary expectations is to use your current earnings as an example. Be open, and honest. Transparency is the best choice when salary based questions arise.

Question 5 of 25
What tools do you use when managing a project?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
The interviewer is asking this question to determine if the candidate uses electronic or manual tools throughout the project lifecycle. Throughout the project lifecycle, the project manager must create work plans, organize tasks, manage budgets and organize their project team, and this can be done manually or with the assistance of various software packages that are available. Common software packages that are available on the market include but are not limited to Microsoft Project, JIRA, Basecamp, and Podio. The candidate does not necessarily have to mention the use of a software tool to successfully answer this question, as many project managers or Project Management Offices (PMOs) have developed their own internal tools for project tracking. To successfully answer this question, the candidate must confidently explain standardized tools, whether they be manual or software-based, to describe how they assist them in managing projects. By providing an appropriate answer to this question, the candidate will be able to provide insights into how they will use or develop tools to manage projects for Emtec.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
