28 Questions and Answers by Tom Dushaj

Published February 28th, 2019
Question 1 of 28
Could you name a few data cleansing best practices that you follow, and how this has helped you become a better Data Consultant?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
A lot of companies ask their technology employees about why data cleansing matter to them. The answer is simple. Good quality data will help a company identify potential customers, provide better customer service, run better quality sales and marketing campaigns, and know how much they are spending and tracking to determine ROI's.

Data Consultants should have expertise with a variety of business intelligence tools like Informatica, Power BI, Cognos, and Microstrategy. All these tools help the company manage data so it can be used within the company for many purposes.

What the hiring manager is seeking out of this question is best practices that you follow. Everyone seems to have a way of doing things their way, and because it's their way, it's not necessarily the best way. This is precisely why the hiring manager wants to hear about your best practices method. Has your method made you a better consultant? The best practices method that you share should convey a message of progressive learning and experience gained in the field while being given more responsibilities for larger and more complex projects. Don't forget to list your best practices and the data cleansing strategy that you use as well.

Question 2 of 28
Explain what the difference is between Data Mining and Data Analytics, and tell me how you have used both in your recent projects?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Data Mining and Data Analytics go hand In hand in the world of big data. Data Mining is used to find patterns among large datasets, while Data Analytics is used to test hypothetical models on particular datasets. Over a period of time, you acquire skills that companies see as valuable to their organization. It's these skills that set you apart in the market. As you hone these skills over time, you become good at many different soft skills that accompany the technical skills. Here's where you can use a combination of these skills to articulate a compelling message that explains the differences between Data Mining and Data Analytics.

A very important question that might come from an interviewer is how much data do you analyze, and how do you manage that data without risking a security breach. Large scale big data projects use tools like Hadoop as a repository for this data. The reason I mention it is the hiring manger might ask what repository you use to store it, and what your level of confidence using this tool is.

How to Answer
The interviewer will likely have an idea of your education background from your resume. What they are asking is for you to take a few minutes to bring the experience to life for them! You can talk about your major, or any special academic recognition you may have received. Discuss the strengths gained during your post-secondary training and how those skills will be used in your new position with Keyrus.

Question 5 of 28
Help me understand your standards for success in your last job. Please describe what you did to attain those standards, and if you fell short of expectations, what did you do to remedy the problem?
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
If you look at companies of all sizes, you'll find different types of standards for each one of them. A smaller company's standards might differ from a larger one, and this could be based on processes, management and overall operations. They hiring manager in this case would like to hear if you value standards, and if you are involved in setting standards or following them. Ideally you want to explain that you have involvement with both. Start with some basic facts about the standards you have set, and how you have garnered support from leadership and have successfully maintained those standards over a long period of time. It's also important to talk about times you had challenges maintaining standards, and how you were able to remedy issues that came up, and regain the support of your teams. This shows the interviewer your human side, because everyone falls short of expectations at some point, but what you did to remedy the problem will be something they will pay close attention to.

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.

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.
