CDG offers a variety of tests to seek insights about applicants and make sure our work is suitable for you. We use two formats of tests to assess that information.

 

1. Aptitude Test

This test is designed to evaluate your critical thinking and analytical reasoning.

 

2. Personality Test

This test encourages you to be yourself. We want to know more about who you really are.

 

Do not be worry about the tests. They are only part of the overall process. We use the test results along with the interview, the application, academic records, and other supporting documents to assess you.

CDG places emphasis on interviews. We want to know your story. The interviews are managed into at least two rounds; each gathers feedback from interviewers to determine the next steps.

 

1. Phone Interview

During a phone interview, you will be talking to a recruiter, future colleagues or your potential boss. The interview takes about 30-45 minutes. You should be prepared for behavioral, hypothetical and case-based questions that cover your knowledge about the role you are applying for.

 

2. On-site Interview

Typically, on-site interviews are conducted by our employees – your prospective colleagues from the same field or cross departments. The interview will take about 30-60 minutes. We want to understand your insights, identity, analytical skills, and problem-solving abilities. You should demonstrate flair, face-to-face trouble shooting, and insightful answers.

 

For those who apply for software-related jobs, we want to know your coding capability and technical expertise. You are expected to illustrate your ability to use tools or programming languages, and have knowledge of general topics, such as database systems, algorithms, etc.

 

For those who apply for engineering and technology-related jobs, make sure that you are able to demonstrate your programming skills and coding languages.

 

For those who apply for non-engineering jobs, accentuate your strengths in these four areas:

  • Analytical skill: We always ask open-ended questions to understand how you cope with a problem. There is no right or wrong answer. What’s most important is your ability to explain your thought process and how you use existing information to form a decision.
  • Leadership: Be prepared for questions on communication skills and decisions to convince others that demonstrate leadership in the workplace. For instance, how did you contribute to your team’s success even if you were not explicitly designated as leader?
  • Job-related knowledge: Show your strengths through experiences that prove job success. We do not judge you on what we think you can do today; but on how you will potentially grow in different roles.
  • Values: We want to know you as a person. Are you a creative thinker, caring, trustworthy, committed to self-improvement, and someone who strives for excellence?

 

Throughout the interview process, you can ask your interviewer to clarify a question again. Relax. You may ask the interviewers more questions about the position, team and culture in order to decide if this job fits you.

 

How to prepare for an interview

  • In general, you will get behavioral questions. For example: Why do you need this job? What is the toughest problem you’ve ever encountered? How did you deal with it? Prepare by listing down 20 behavioral questions you think we are likely to ask.
  • Plan: Give the interviewers the answers you have prepared and present them naturally.
  • Have a backup plan: You may build up three answers for each question you prepare. The backup answers should present different stories about you. Since the first interviewer may not like all of your stories, the technique allows you to present the next interviewers with new stories that may impress them.
  • Exploit useful information: The answers you have prepared should tell a story or your abilities relevant to a question, such as what kind of leader you are.
  • Practice: Try practicing with yourself. Talk to yourself until you feel you can tell a story clearly and concisely.n
  • For positions related to engineering and technology, you should demonstrate your computer and coding capabilities in an interview.

After the interviews are completed, we will review your application packets, including the test scores, observations after interview, resume, references, work portfolio, etc. Our executives are involved in this reviewing process; all applications are presented to ensure that we adhere to our hiring standards.

 

We have all passed through the same process. We know we can trust each other and hope to welcome you to the CDG family.

 

 

  • What to wear for the interview?

We want you to be yourself. You can wear casual outfits but retain a polite manner. In some cases, our recruiter may notify you in advance.

 

  • How to answer the interview questions?

We want responses that demonstrate problem solving skills. You are expected to elaborate your thinking process and analytical skills.

 

  • What will be asked in the interview?

Prepare for general questions about your working practices and experience. For example: What is the environment you work best in? Do you like to work in a team or alone? What challenges did you face in your past jobs and how did you overcome them? Which of your attributes or capabilities do you think qualify you for the position?

 

  • How long is the application process?

Generally, applicants will be notified about interview results within 24 hours.

 

  • Where is the workplace?

Your workplace depends on the position you are applying. You may sit at CDG’s head office, or work at customer sites.

 

  • Do I need to know how to code?

Not necessarily. There are plenty of non technical IT careers you can pursue at CDG.

 

 

Lastly, we encourage you to ask the interviewer for clarification if you are not sure what you are being asked. Relax and take some time to think before you respond to questions.
