Cgi Group Interview Rounds and Process
How do you keep your technology skills current?

This tech interview question can help you gauge the candidate’s enthusiasm for the profession — and open a conversation about professional development.
Jobs at ASENTECH
1 What would you hope to achieve in the first six months after being hired?
The answer to this tech interview question depends on the role. A developer, for example, may hope to have developed a small project during that time, while a tech manager may want to have analyzed internal processes. A candidate’s response will give you insights into their overall understanding of the position. If their goals and ambitions don’t match the job description, this may not be the right role for them.
Can you tell me about a time when things didn’t go the way you wanted at work, such as a project that failed, or being passed over for a promotion?
Everyone deals with professional setbacks at some point in their career. You want to know how people handled — and what they learned from — those situations. The best employees are resilient, using setbacks as a springboard toward positive changes. So listen to not only the problem they mention but also what they did after the disappointment.
1 What are the qualities of a successful team or project leader?
Always be on the lookout for leaders, even when you’re not hiring for a management position. The nature of IT work means individuals frequently have to take responsibility for delivering projects, and this requires leadership skills such as organization, motivation, positive thinking, delegation and communication. This question may also indicate how well they’ll work with your current leaders.
1 Tell us about the last presentation you gave
Today’s tech professionals can’t be lone wolves. They have to discuss changes with teammates, coordinate with other departments, advocate for platforms they prefer and much more. While not everyone has to love public speaking, your new hire should be able to conduct research, put together a solid presentation and persuade stakeholders why X is better than Y.
What are the benefits and the drawbacks of working in an Agile environment?
Most IT teams have adopted some form of Agile — currently the favored SDLC methodology — which means lots of quick meetings and a steady stream of feedback from fellow team members. A candidate’s answer can help you assess not only their level of understanding of this popular environment but also their attitude toward collaboration and communication.
How would you explain [a relevant technology] to someone with limited tech skills?
IT plays a crucial role in almost every company, so communicating well with non-tech colleagues is a must. You can assess candidates’ communication skills with this question. Do they avoid obscure acronyms and jargon? How well can they break down a complicated process and compare it to something that’s common knowledge? Also, this question can help you get a feel for the candidate’s own understanding of core concepts.
