  • How to Answer

  • Answer Example

Whether you will be working on clinical solutions in the form of clinical trials and development plans for them or with their groundbreaking technological advancements like AI-driven personalization hubs for patients at IQVIA, odds are good that you are being considered to join a fast-paced team. On top of that, their customers expect results in short order. Because of this, your interviewer will want to hear that you are ready to take on a pressure-packed environment at IQVIA, so they pose this question during your interview. The best way to answer a question like this is to use your previous experience to show how you can handle multiple duties, projects, and deadlines at one time with ease.

"IQVIA's next project manager needs to come to your team with the ability to oversee and coordinate multiple projects at one time while having the ability to supervise support staff in a remote environment and providing continuous customer support across the country. I want you to know that my ability to juggle the stress and pressure that comes with this job would really come second nature to me. As you can see from my resume, I've spent the last nine years in a project management role at the pharmacy level for a large pharmaceutical company. I've developed a great system of keeping my work organized, keeping myself on track with my own goals, and ensuring I can delegate tasks among a team of 28 that I've been responsible for."

  • 2. Have you ever had your integrity challenged on the job? If so, how did you handle that situation?

      How to Answer

      If you take the time before your video interview to read their code of conduct on their website, you'll quickly see that it is uniquely titled "Doing the Right Thing." Their Chairman and CEO Ari Bousbib elaborates on this further by highlighting why operating with honesty, integrity, and ethical conduct is essential to IQVIA's success when conducting business all over the world. It will be vital for your interviewer to understand that you would join their team with a high degree of integrity, so they ask this question. You will look weak if you say your integrity has never been challenged, because we all have faced an ethical dilemma on the job. Just make sure the example you discuss shows what the situation was, what challenged you, and how you did the right thing in the end.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "Yes, it was early in my career out of college. I had great working relationships with my colleagues and we often gathered outside of work for social activities. It really helped team building and camaraderie. Becoming close to colleagues has major upsides, but one difficult downside that I encountered. One day, I discovered a colleague pouring alcohol into a soda after lunch and prior to some meetings we were about to step into. A little hesitant on what to do at the time, I let the situation go and we went into our meetings. It didn't take long to notice that it definitely impacted my colleague's interactions during the meeting as they were very withdrawn. Later that day, I went and had a very upfront and frank conversation with my colleague. I let him know what I saw and that I was very disappointed. Knowing that this was strictly against company policy, I encouraged my colleague to talk to our director and he was very angry that I would suggest this. I told him I'd let him think about it overnight and that I'd go to our director the next morning. Thankfully, he went and spoke to our director. While this whole situation would have been easy to brush off, that's not the kind of person I am or who IQVIA would be getting if I emerged as your top candidate."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

  • 3. What are you most passionate about?

      How to Answer

      While certainly a very open-ended question that can throw candidates for a loop, the team at IQVIA is very pointed in using a question like this in their video interview process because passion is one of the organization's four key guiding principles. Your interviewer has taken the time to get to know you and your interests throughout your interview, so now is the time to discuss where your true passion lies in your work. Knowing that IQVIA is providing services daily to many different facets of healthcare and medicine, be sure your passion demonstrates that you are committed to IQVIA's mission moving forward.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "I was raised by parents who were always driving me and my sister to do better things in the world. I was given opportunities to volunteer in our community and our church growing up, and these experiences really helped shape my career and where I am today as a scientist. I've wanted to continue helping people and a career as a lab scientist has made that come true for me and I'm hoping to continue that moving forward with IQVIA's amazing mission. This team is working on genomics and the development of groundbreaking vaccines, something that could potentially save many lives. I find this fascinating and inspiring to be a part of."

  • 4. How would you describe your communication skills and how will they benefit the team at IQVIA?

      How to Answer

      Among a diverse and expansive team of 86,000 people at IQVIA, communication skills are essential to success for any new IQVIAN and your interviewer will want to hear you discuss your communication skills during your video interview. To best answer a question like this, you'll want to ensure that you've done your homework on the role and specifically focus on the duties you will hold, who you will be working with, and your work environment. If you will be interviewing for a virtual telework position there, you'll want to ensure you focus on your writing skills and ability to connect over the phone and video. Make sure you give a well-rounded view of the skills you will bring to the team and reiterate why your new colleague will take hold of your communication style.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "I think the best communication skill I possess that I've developed throughout my career is my ability to listen intently and determine where a colleague is coming from and put that information to good use. My current colleagues have always commended my ability to be an open listener and I'm confident this team at IQVIA will feel the same way. I also know that collaboration is one of the key principles that help you better utilize the data and information in the medical field, and my communication in a team-based setting is always genuine, heartfelt, and respectful. Even in the most trying of times, my colleagues have always enjoyed our positive interactions."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

  • 5. Do you have any questions for us about the position or IQVIA?

      How to Answer

      A first-round virtual interview with IQVIA is certainly a two-way street, where both the organization is trying to gauge your fit for the job and you gauge your future fit with the company. Knowing this, your interviewer wants to hear if you have any additional questions before the conclusion of the video interview to ensure that you have all the information you need in your hands to determine if you would continue to interview and consider a position with IQVIA if offered. You should always come prepared with a list of questions and you can check questions off during your interview as they get answered. To show that you have done your homework and remain very highly interested in the job, you can feel free to ask questions about the fine details of the job, the rich history of IQVIA, or the exciting new developments they may be working on in the data, AI, drug development, or regulatory compliance sectors.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "Yes, I appreciate you asking and I can't say enough about how insightful this video conversation has been about the job and IQVIA as a whole. I'd love to learn more about the typical people and departments that this position most often collaborates with. Can you talk more about the colleagues that I would be working with? Also, I was reading a bit about your work in the MedTech industry. If you can share, I'd love to hear more about the work that IQVIA is doing in this space because I have been involved in work in the past with medical devices. Can you elaborate more on that?"

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

  • 6. What type of manager or management style do you work best under?

      How to Answer

      At IQVIA, you will find that the leadership style is supportive and encouraging, allowing employees to live their key principles of innovation, collaboration, and growth. During their interview process, your interviewer will want to ensure that their leadership style will match what you are ideally looking for when you join a new employer. While there is no right or wrong answer here, you want to keep your answer positive and highlight how you most enjoy working in the type of environment you will be joining at IQVIA. If you have any insight into the best boss or leader you have worked under, you can be sure to share some of those qualities during your video interview.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "I like to consider myself pretty flexible in this respect as I would come to IQVIA having worked under many management styles. I've spent a few years in a more authoritative and siloed environment and was able to succeed there. Over the last four years, I've been in a more collaborative environment that was more open to ideas and promoted conversation both among and within teams. I really love this environment because my director and I can have open and honest conversations and bounce our ideas off each other. Having talked to some IQVIANs before the interview, I get the sense that an environment like this is highly encouraged here."

  • 7. What was the biggest challenge you have faced throughout your career or education?

      How to Answer

      IQVIA provides services and solutions across a wide range of industry segments, including pharmaceutical manufacturers, financial institutions, consumer health, providers, and public health entities. The work there can provide some challenging situations you may find yourself in someday in a role there, so your interviewer asks this question to see how you overcome a challenge. Knowing that your interviewer wants to hear the work and dedication you put into it, clearly outline what the situation was, what the tasks were, and your actions that were key in ensuring that the issue was no longer a problem moving forward.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "I think back to a project my team was working on a couple of years ago with a big, high-profile client. We were nearing the end stages of planning and about to go into the development stages when our main contact with the client suddenly left the company. Within days, someone new from the client was put on the project and they had a much different idea for the final product and its eventual release. Upon initially finding this out in a phone call, many on my project team were distraught because of all the potential rework that may need to be done. Lost time is lost money and that was not a road we wanted to go down. In the coming days, I invited the new contact to a two-hour virtual meeting with my team so we could share in-depth about all of the planning, research, and work that had been done so far and we were able to let them see that this project was headed in the right direction. Looking back, this took a little bit of unconventional thinking that I would love to bring to work as an IQVIAN."

  • 8. Have you ever had to work alongside an underperforming team member? If so, how did you handle that situation?

      How to Answer

      In their mission to make a positive impact in everything that they do, every IQVIAN must be at the top of their game in performing at their peak. Their customers rely on things like the data profiling and launch strategy services that they provide, and your ability to help a colleague get up to speed will be an extra asset to have. If posed this question during your video interview with IQVIA, try to talk about a time you were encouraging and supported a colleague that wasn't performing to their highest level. Make sure to clearly outline the situation, your actions, and the positive result that came from your actions.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

      Answer Example

      "Yes, it was a very unfortunate situation I had with a colleague who was in the middle of a very difficult personal situation in their life and it was impacting their work. Rather than get mad about the situation or take on more work myself, I sat down and had a heart-to-heart conversation with them. They were very appreciative and opened up about their personal issue to me and it was very easy for me to see how their work was impacted. I suggested help through our EAP program and suggested taking some time off work, reiterating that the projects we were working on were very important. My colleague talked to our manager and took a week off work. They came back very refreshed and ready to perform at a high level. I'm hopeful that this situation will show you that I can be a great team player here."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 2nd, 2024

  • 9. When have you sought an opportunity for professional growth and development?

      How to Answer

      Growth, through always seeking opportunities for personal and professional growth, is one of IQVIA's four key principles of achieving success. Per their career site, the company offers five ways that individuals can grow their careers there and your interviewer wants to hear that you take advantage of career development during your video interview. Be sure to think about a time when you were proactive in seeking out a training opportunity and come prepared to discuss why you sought it out. To seal your answer here, show excitement for IQVIA's Career Connections, their manager training programs, and the mentorships that they offer to staff.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 1st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "Last year, I worked with my manager on beginning to attend PhRMA Association's online and in-person events that were relevant to my work and I can't be happier that I did. Some great events that I was a part of were their 'Modern Heath Leadership Symposium' and 'The Future of Fighting Cancer.' Both events were very eye-opening and I was able to bring great information back to our team. If I'm fortunate enough to join the IQVIA team, I want you to be assured that I'd love to continue with these opportunities into the future and also take part in your great Career Connections program in finding new advancement opportunities for me here."

  • 10. How are you best motivated to succeed in your work?

      How to Answer

      The team at IQVIA works daily on consulting some of the most important clinical trials for new therapies and outsourcing work for some of the largest competitors in the game. Being motivated to do your best every day on the job will be important for you, so your interviewer wants to understand just what makes you tick in your work. Be prepared to discuss what motivates your work and, if possible, talk about their core values of honesty, integrity, and ethical conduct and their guiding principles of passion, innovation, collaboration, and growth as you answer.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 1st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "My decision to obtain my PhD was to be a part of a greater effort to aid those people most in need and my work up to this point in my career has been very fulfilling. I've had the chance to be on teams that have developed innovative drugs in the realm of cancer care over the last nine years and this has kept me personally very motivated in my daily work and further my skillset. Here at IQVIA, this role to further my work in both in vitro and in vivo biotransformation studies sounds so exciting to be a part of. From a day-to-day standpoint, my motivation comes from being a part of a dynamic team and achieving some big wins together."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 1st, 2024

  • 11. Talk about a time where had a conflict with a difficult colleague or leader. What did you learn in that situation that you would bring to work at IQVIA?

      How to Answer

      At IQVIA, they aim to bring out the best in each other and maximize their positive impact by working together. But one thing you need to realize in being considered is that you'll be joining a hard-working and dedicated team of individuals, and some of them may have strong, commanding personalities that you may initially clash with. It is imperative that your interviewer knows you will be able to live their key principle of collaboration in a respectful manner, so they pose this question to you during your video interview. Try to talk about a time when you can outline the situation and highlight how you kept a positive attitude and ended up finding a great solution to working together effectively.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 1st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "When I graduated from my Master's program, I took a job in a fast-paced lab. It was a bit of a rude awakening for me coming out of college into the workforce, particularly in working with some very focused and dedicated individuals who were willing to do anything to succeed. One particular teammate of mine was very hard on me, demanding better work even when I was providing great results. Their communication style was demanding and this caught me way off guard. Rather than cowering, I continued to ask more questions of this colleague and maintain a positive mindset. Over time, we had a great working relationship. From what I've heard from you today, I'd be joining a very similar passionate and dedicated team and I now have the wherewithal to speak my mind and chip in to the biggest developments we will be working on together."

  • 12. What does your typical work day look like right now?

      How to Answer

      The daily life of an IQVIAN can vary greatly from job to job and department to department. With no right or wrong answer to a question like this, your interviewer is simply looking to hear what your typical work day is like to help them determine how that would translate to the role that you are interviewing for. While you should be straightforward in your answer, you can get some great insight into what a typical day looks like in many roles at IQVIA by looking at the blogs on their career site. On that site, many IQVIANs are interviewed about their daily life and can give great insight into what you will be stepping into.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "In a typical day in my current role, I start my day by working through emails from the prior evening and earlier that day and reworking my daily tasks list. From there, the day can go in several directions based on scheduled meetings. If I have a free calendar of meetings, I prioritize immediate project work and get in contact with project leaders regarding progress. I tend to leave my email blocked for 30 minutes later on in the day. My job fields a lot of calls from external customers, so those are always a top priority when calls come in and I take swift action on items needed for customers following calls. Over the last five years, I've become very accustomed and efficient working in a remote role like I'd be doing here at IQVIA and I want you to be assured that I would continue to be efficient in my work."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on February 1st, 2024

  • 13. How would your current colleagues describe your leadership skills?

      How to Answer

      As one of IQVIA's four key principles that drive their mission, collaboration is lived every day by IQVIANs to help bring out the best in each other. No matter what role you are being considered for during your video interview, it will be important for your interviewer to learn what type of leader you would be as part of their team. Think about your leadership style and how others have described how you lead others and come prepared to discuss this. If you have an example or two of a time when your leadership benefitted a greater team effort, be sure to talk about that as well.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "If you were to contact any of my references, who are all current colleagues, they wouldn't hesitate to say that I am a great communicator who is respectful and always encouraging thoughts and ideas from others. These qualities help others to gravitate to me in the workplace and follow me in larger projects. A great example of this would be last year when my sales team was in charge of releasing a new product to regional providers. Early tests indicated that this would be a revolutionary drug, but we didn't have the appropriate marketing materials available at the time our leadership wanted it released. Rather than have a negative attitude, I immediately started getting heads together to come up with a plan for developing materials and a plan for bringing the product to the market. The few on my team who were hesitant upon the first announcement quickly came in to help. After a very successful launch, my manager thanked me for my efforts."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

  • 14. Tell us about yourself.

      How to Answer

      To become a successful and motivated IQVIAN, it's important to understand the four key attributes that define the overall company culture at IQVIA. Those are passion, innovation, collaboration, and growth. During their video interview process, your interviewers want to ensure that you would be a great fit for their culture and be able to get along well with their team. Knowing that a question like this will be coming, it is best to prepare a high-level speech on your personal life and interests, your background, and your ability to bring the four attributes they look for in new team members to ensure you are seen as a great fit.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 18th, 2024

      Answer Example

      "Thank you for the opportunity. I'm so excited to be talking further about joining the IQVIA team. Two years ago, I graduated with a dual major in chemistry and biology and began working in a very intense lab setting. While this experience has been great in exposing me to solid GLP practices and getting more experience in various lab equipment and instrumentation, I'm ready to take the next step in my career in working directly with cancer treatments. Outside of work, I have a growing family with our second child just born a few months ago. We remain very busy now with two young children. Our active lifestyle is led by our passion for being outdoors and spending as much time with extended family as possible. One huge benefit of this position at IQVIA is that it will bring us closer to both of our families. The IQVIA passion, innovation, and growth attributes really spoke to me as well because being in a workplace that is always evolving and utilizing teamwork is what I thrive on."

  • 15. When would you be able to start at IQVIA if you were offered this position?

      How to Answer

      In IQVIA's daily life, providing data solutions, innovative technology, and groundbreaking research in healthcare doesn't stop. When they are recruiting a new person to join their team, the company works tirelessly to ensure that their time to fill is as short as possible. During your virtual time together, your interviewer will want to get a sense of what your ideal start date will be if offered the position and it's best to put some thought into this question and be upfront as you answer. Hiring managers will always consider outside factors like the need to relocate, a notice needed with a current employer, or a graduation date, so be sure to give your best thoughts on when you'd be able to start.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "First, I want you to know that I'd be thrilled to receive an offer and would want to get started with IQVIA as soon as I was able to. With that said, my current employer does request at least a 30-day notice and I would certainly want to give that to them out of respect. Considering any pre-employment requirements that IQVIA has, I think starting about five weeks after accepting an offer would work well for me. Would this work on your end?"

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

  • 16. Where are you in your job search? Are there any other interview processes you may be in?

      How to Answer

      Due to the highly skilled and specialized nature of the work at IQVIA, their interview process will be thorough to ensure that the person they hire is the right candidate. Knowing that a more formal interview will be down the road following their virtual interview process, your interviewer will try to assess where you are at in your search process. If are considering, applying, or interviewing elsewhere, this may kick things into high gear for the company to ensure they land you if you are a top candidate. You should be honest about where you are in your job search process as you answer, without divulging too many details regarding other companies you are considering.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "With my husband taking a job opportunity here on the East Coast, I have been looking at and applying to a few opportunities here that match my qualifications and what I am looking for in a new employer. I was very excited to learn about this opportunity at IQVIA because your work in pediatric early-phase cancer work and rare disease networks is so awe-inspiring and an effort I would love to be a part of. I'm not currently in any other interview processes and will certainly keep you updated if I receive any other offer to interview in the near future."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

  • 17. If offered this position at IQVIA, would you have any salary expectations to accept our offer?

      How to Answer

      IQVIA utilizes the video interview process to whittle a great candidate pool down to a few finalists for interviews. If you emerge as a serious candidate, your interviewer will want to be sure that they won't be wasting time on further interviews if your salary expectations are beyond what the company offers. Before your video interview, take the time to read through the job posting once again on the IQVIA website and pay special attention to the bottom of the posting. There you will find the annualized salary range for the position you are interviewing for. You want to ensure that you respond briefly and make sure that your desired/required salary falls within their range, while also keeping in mind that your education and experience will factor into where you fall in that range. Being open and honest now is the best thing for both you and IQVIA.

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

      Answer Example

      "I currently earn an annual salary of $49,000 in my current position and would hope to stay somewhere near this if offered to join here at IQVIA. I know that my two years of experience since graduating with my bachelor's degree will be taken into account. I also want you to know that I'm not fully driven in this move by salary, particularly because IQVIA offers such amazing educational opportunities for your staff and a great benefits package that I would also consider as part of an offer."

      Written by Ryan Brunner on January 31st, 2024

  • 18. Describe your ideal work environment.

      How to Answer

      The IQVIAN lifestyle and IQVIA workplace culture are filled with passion and a team of people who are striving to move healthcare forward. In posing this question, your team of interviewers wants to be assured that you will fit in well with their collaborative and innovative environment, while also hearing that you hold the same diversity and inclusion philosophies as the company and that you embrace a flexible working environment as they offer. Before your video interview, make sure to check out their websites on their company culture and "Life at IQVIA" so that you can come prepared to elaborate on how this is the right fit for you.

  • 20. What are three words that you would use to describe yourself?

      How to Answer

      IQVIA and all IQVIANs are built upon four main principles: passion, innovation, collaboration, and growth. During their video interview process, ensuring that top candidates can help live these four key principles will be important to your interviewers. They ask this question in hopes that you will show that you have a forward-thinking mindset, the ability to function as part of an impactful team, the passion to work at a higher level, and an open mind to helping to create better things. Put some thought into this question and be honest and passionate as you describe yourself in just three words.

      Answer Example

      "This is a great question and I'd love to share words that I not only feel about myself but also words that my current and past leaders have used to describe me. Number one would be driven. I am a focused and driven individual in my work and my drive comes from my desire to help discover new and innovative therapies. The second word I would use would be partner. My colleagues have always appreciated my ability to collaborate in an open and respectful manner and these are qualities I'm excited to bring to work here at IQVIA. The last word I would use to describe myself would be curious. I'm a person who is never satisfied with the status quo and the same old way of doing things. I'm confident that this curiosity would bode well for me here in your approach to better support your customers' innovations."

      How to Answer

      A mission to create a healthier world drives a large number of candidates to join the dynamic IQVIA team.
