The Interview
The Process
Our interview process is a simulation of a typical consultant’s day on the job – designed to replicate your thought process if you were to put-on one of our consultants’ shoes, and at the same time affirms you for what you should be expecting inside our house. We seek to learn about your capabilities and interests, yet equally important enable you to learn as much about us and our people. We look for outstanding candidates who fit with our culture and are able to work side-by-side with our people.
A typical interview includes a mix of behavioral and background questions followed by one or two case interviews.
Initial conversations help us understand more about your background, skills and capabilities – both analytical and communication–, accomplishments, career objectives and more importantly about what you like and what you dislike. They also help you learn more about our firm, the kind of work we deliver for our clients and what we live and breathe for, every day.
Case interviews are designed to test how you approach a challenge, evaluate your analytical capabilities and your innovation capacity. In a case interview, you will be given a typical client challenge and asked about your approach to tackle it. The focus is not on getting to an actual number, but rather on how you frame the challenge and design an approach that “fits”. At every step, the interviewee stands ready to answer any questions that you might have and provide more info to help you understand and characterize the challenge.
A typical successful candidate passes through three interviews.
