Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone has applied to IBM's Graduate Business Consulting scheme for 2019 entry?

I have applied for the February - June entry, and yesterday received an email invitation to the HireVue - Pre Recorded Interview, but have still not received an email with the link to the interview. It says that I have 3 business days to complete the interview, but this has already been 1/2 business days since I received this email, and I have not received the link to begin the interview (I have checked my spam folder and the IBM portal only shows the invite email, not the link). I was wondering whether anyone had the same problem?

Thanks!

EDIT: I have made a mistake in the title of this thread! It should say IBM Graduate Business Consulting! Sorry!

I too received the application form a day after the video interview so does that mean we passed the video interview?

I had the same! I'm not sure that we've passed the video interview though, maybe that and the application form will be reviewed by a manager as one?

That was the part I had a bit of trouble with as well. I just gave a kind of broad overview about degree and future aspirations and went into a lot more detail in the following questions

Submitted the application now waiting for them to review it and hopefully invite me to the AC. Although their portal did update to say congratulations on your interview but at the same time got an email to say your application is being reviewed by a manager.

I don't think I ever received an email to say my application is being reviewed by a manager? 😣

I submitted the app form yesterday and uploaded onto the portal. Got an email this morning to say they received it and will now pass on to a graduate manager to review. Then a follow up email to answer some questions like ethnicity that type of form.

Also, after uploading the form did you send the graduate team an email to confirm you've uploaded the form?

Just got an email to say I have been rejected. Really gutted not to make it to the AC as I spent time doing those questions and had my careers advisor at uni to check it. I think my last question on VI must've been the reason.


That's my 3rd rejection today after Stage 3 of EY (despite good feedback) and accenture. Trying to say positive amidst these rejections and hoping I get my chance soon.
