I’ve been doing a lot os screenings and I have some tips to share with you guys.
People have a lot of experience in MicroStrategy, but when I ask simple things, they just can’t answer them correctly. It’s bad when we have such a great resume but don’t know the basics. So, the first tip is:
1. Study harder
There are a so many good material that can be read for free that explains the basics of MicroStrategy and all terminologies. Spend more time reading those manuals. They are gold.
2. If you don’t know the answer, it’s not bad to say that you don’t know
If you don’t know the answer, you can ask for a hint, maybe you will remember, if not, don’t try to answer with other things or anything else. Go direct to the point, don’t spend too much time answering a question. Sometimes I want to ask more things, but the person simple doesn’t allow me to do, since they don’t stop speaking.
3. Don’t try to learn things while you are in the interview
Another common situation is when I ask a specific thing, the person doesn’t know the answer and ask me how to do it and keep asking examples of it. You are not there to learn, but to be tested. I think it’s ok to ask straight questions, but don’t spend too much time trying to learn new things.
4. Don’t ask for help
Maybe you don’t know, but whispering can be heard… I already caught people asking others if what she said was ok. Please, don’t do that. Don’t ask the questions to someone else.
Please, let me know what are your thoughts about that. Do you have some tips? Leave the tips in the comments below.
Hope it helps.
God bless you!
