If there is an initial fit you will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire. This questionnaire, along with your resume and key details will be presented to the Hiring Manager or Subject Matter Expert for consideration. If there’s continued interest in your candidacy, a second phone interview will be conducted. Since many of our teams are geographically dispersed, the interviews may be conducted solely by phone. However, when locations coincide, an in-person interview is always preferred.
When interviewing with CherryRoad, you should be prepared to discuss your project work at length, and with as much detail as possible. As a consultant, it is not just about your depth of knowledge and experience, but your ability to communicate with the client, articulate concepts in a clear and concise manner is an equally important part of the assessment.
