Consulting Interview

The process
  • Our process typically includes one or two rounds of case interviews plus one final round interview. 
  • Candidates should receive the Hiring Committee's decision within two weeks of any interview.
  • By the end of the process, less than one percent of candidates receive offers.

Case interview screens. First round interviews typically take place via a one-way video platform.  This platform helps us standardize our case processes more objectively (and thus fairly).  It also provides efficiencies that enables our boutique firm to interview a larger and broader pool of talent.  Other case interviews will take place via web conference.

All screening interviews will include a case interview as well as behavioral questions.  Note that the interviewer often takes copious notes, to inform the Hiring Committee's evaluation.

Final round interviews. Final round candidates will (i) make a case presentation to the Hiring Committee and (ii) meet additional team members and/or Partners. 

For candidates with less consulting experience, the final round case presentation will cover a 3+ hour “case simulation” exercise that the candidate completes during the final round interview day.  For candidates with more consulting experience, the final round case presentation will cover the take-home assignment that the candidate completed in their own time, before the interview day.
