Data management interview tips

CK Clinical is one of the leading UK pharmaceutical recruitment companies dealing with data management vacancies.  We recently conducted a poll amongst our staff about the types of questions that are commonly asked at a data management job interview.

Here are some examples of the types of questions you may be asked:

Working as part of a team:

It is extremely common for Data Managers to work as part of a large team, often on a global scale.  So, it is a good idea to think about the times when you have worked as part of a team and the role you played.

Dealing with conflict:

People within a team people don’t always agree therefore, you may be asked about times when you have dealt with conflict. They will want to know how you handled that situation, what the resolution was and what you would do differently in the future.

Electronic Data Capture (EDC):

EDC is a big part of data management these days, so you may be asked about the times when you have dealt with EDC studies. Perhaps you have set one up? So, try to think about the kinds of examples you can give in this area.

Good Clinical Practice (GCP):

GCP impacts on every part of the clinical development process, but Data Management is a big part of that. So, perhaps try to think about the times when you have worked to GCP and in what way that has impacted on what you have done on a day-to-day basis.
