Hello,

I am new to this forum, and really appreciate the responsiveness from my first post.

Here’s my question :
I will have an interview tomorrow (the first of my career) on Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence [this would be my first job].

I have prepared a lot, technically as well as theoretically.

What could I expect as important technical or analytical points that could be brought up during the interview ?

For example :
1) What is expected of my level in T-SQL ?

2) How important is it to understand the concepts of data mining for a beginner ?

3) What is expected of me being it my first experience in BI ?

4) What is the importance of certifications (I have passed on exam so far 70-448) ?


Thanks !

Kind Regards,
Salma

Golden rules of an interview:

Try to relax & enjoy it.

Listen carefully to questions - keep alert.

Show interest.

Have a list of questions to ask. Also ask questions/show interest in any business information they give you - for example systems you might be working on.

Don't forget to tell them about your knowledge & experience. Passing an exam already will be a big plus.

If its your first job, they will not expect you to be an expert, but they will expect you to be aware of what the job involves & what skills/knowledge you need to do it.

They will want someone keen who is willing & able to learn. In IT you need to learn a lot & keep learning (if you're going to be any good).

So its important to be: keen, alert, interested in them & the company, & able to show willingness/interest in learning.
