Lominger Interview Questions and Tips
Lominger is one of the prime consulting companies. Similarly to all the consulting jobs, one needs to have a certain skills set to do this job well. Particularly, you should be able to :
- Create a good relationship and with the client. You should be able to build trust.
- Have good communication skills and an ability to explain, but also to see the things from a point of view of a customer.
- Be bright, have unique ideas. Companies do not hire consulting firms to tell them something they already know.
- Be expert in your area of expertise, specially you should really have some practical experience.
- Problem identifying and solving skills. Nowadays, many people can solve problems. However, just the exceptional consultants can identify it early enough to minimize the damage.
- Have good selling skills. At the end of the day, customers should “buy” your idea. Otherwise, they would not co-operate with Lominger on a long term basis.
Case studies decide often in Lominger interview
Although it is hard to give you an exact list of Lominger interview questions, you should prepare for sure for one type of questions : the case studies.
You will simply be given a scenario a customer is facing. Your task will be to find the solution and present it to the interviewer or interviewing panel – who represents the customer. The study will be most likely related to the exact position in Lominger you are applying for. You will be given like 30 minutes to prepare your solution and presentation.
I can not stress enough that this is the most important part in an interview. Even if you answer all the other questions well but struggle in the case study, they’ll not choose you. Therefor you should mock the presentation before an interview and also try to find some case studies online (we have some in project management interview questions). This should help you to be well prepared and ace your interview. Below you can find some commonly used questions at Lominger.
- Why Lominger? Why not other consulting company?
- Why should we hire you and not someone else?
- What added value can you bring to our comapny?
- When was the last time you consulted someone? What problem did he face?
- How would you sell me an idea?
- Do you feel comfortable speaking to CEOs?
- What do you think characterize a good consultant?
- What are your goals?
- If you consult one of our clients and he is so satisfied with your work that he offers you a full time position, what will you do?
- Look around the office. Can you find some things that can be changed here to improve my working productivity?
- What do you consider as the biggest problems of the US economy right now?
These were just a short examples of questions used commonly at Lominger and companies of that kind. As you can see, it’s nothing but difficult. However, if you prepare for it advance, have your mind open and have this personality of a consultant inside of you, you should be able to handle the pressure and get the job. We also recommend you to take a training of presentation skills (if you need to improve it) as well as sales training. Such things can help you not only on your resume, but also during the actual job interview for a consulting job. Good Luck!
