IBM Interview Competencies


To work for IBM in any job role takes a unique set of skills and competencies. Below, we have highlighted the different areas we recommend you concentrate on during the build-up to your interview. By demonstrating experience in the following competencies, you will find it easier to answer the interview questions. The competencies are applicable for all IBM roles:

COLLABORATION

Working a part of a team is vital in organization’s that are as successful as IBM. You will need to show your ability to work with work colleagues, stakeholders, contractors and clients. 

COMMUNICATION

You will need to show you are capable of communicating clearly, concisely and in a manner that is commensurate to the IBM brand. Without effective communication, projects often fail, or the standards required are not achieved.

DECISION-MAKING

Being able to make effective decisions that are in the best interest of the organization is essential to all IBM job roles. Think of previous situations you have been in where you make difficult decisions under challenging circumstances. 

PRIDE AND PASSION IN YOUR WORK

Having pride in your work and a passion for the company brand can only come naturally. You either have passion or you don’t. You can help show your passion for the IBM brand by researching the organization carefully in the build-up to the interview. Take a look at the IBM website and don’t forget to visit their LinkedIn corporate page, too.

PROBLEM SOLVING

Do you have previous experience of solving difficult problems at work? For example, when have you worked on a project that was about to fail, but you managed to turn things around? When have you dealt with conflict within a team? Being able to respond to problems quickly and help resolve them are vital traits needed to work for IBM. 

HIGH STANDARDS

An organization such as IBM does not achieve the success it has enjoyed without an insistence on high standards. Think of times when you have previously shown integrity at work and completed projects to a very high standard.
