  • Why did you leave your previous job?
  • What is the one thing you would say you need to improve on?

Comment

The woman who I had the in-person interview with was very cold and unfriendly. I would not want to work for her. I would not have gotten past all the phone interviews if I was as stupid as she made me feel.

Comment

First, Cognizant needs to respect their applicants and at least acknowledge an application. I have a Doctorate in Information Security; less than 9,000 people nationwide have a top-level degree in Information Security, as I do. They need to re-vamp their 'hiring process' so that applicants are acknowledged and get a chance to speak with them. Their hiring process is sorely lacking.

This is the chronic issue with recruitment resources. You are never notified if the job is filled or the job is closed. Out of courtesy, send a canned response indicating that another resource was chosen or the job requisition was closed.

Hire interviewers who actually speak English. Also, observe laws prohibiting interviewers from inquiring about past salary history.

It would be good to know some feedback after the application, either in case of success or failure.
