I was looking for interview questions on SAS Enterprise Miner. Just I want to know the exceptations from employers to SAS EM beginner. I do understand that it depends on the requirement , but I would like to know the things which I should know when apply for SAS EM developer for 1year experience.
Thanks in advance for any help you offer me.

For someone with 1 year experience in Enterprise Miner and data mining, I would expect you to know:
-some best practices like data partition and using imputation only when needed
-how to avoid overtraining or overfitting a model
-how to use decisions and priors for oversampling or train a model with rare events
-how to interpret the results from the most common modeling nodes
-to explain in simple terms most plots and fit statistics on the model comparison node
After using EM for a year, you should be able to get the certification predictive modeling using SAS Enterprise Miner. Any of the questions or general cases seem like fair game for an interview. My go-to advice for prepping that exam is to read the appendix cases of the course Applied Analytics Using SAS Enterprise Miner.
For someone with more experience you should be able to
-know how to use the SAS code node using macro variables
-build custom reports directly on EM
-have a notion of batch code, deploying, and monitoring models
-design advanced diagrams for complex tasks such as deep learning or complex ensembles.
Good luck in your interview!
