I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in June 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online through university career center and received notification of phone interview 2-3 weeks later. The position that I applied for was not the position that they decided to interview me for. The phone interview was comprised of a list of questions that others have previously mentioned. Received notification about a week later stating that they wanted to invite me in for an in-person interview for 3 different positions. First round of interviews was composed of 3 2:1 interview and 2 1:1 interviews (5 total) for the 3 positions. Was contacted the next day for an invitation to complete 2nd round of interviews which was composed of 1 2:1 interview and 1 1:1 interview. Thoroughly enjoyed all 7 of my in-person interviews. Interviewers were pleasant and asked behavioral questions that are very similar to the ones previously posted. Looking for great organizational skills (ability to upward-manage projects and tasks), great presentation/speaking skills, solid goal-setting and execution skills, and people with a genuine interest in the work/field. Be able to speak to your resume. Was contacted 2 days after my final interview with an offer. Fell in love with "young" environment and opportunities to move up within the firm fairly early in your career.

Interview Question – Please describe your experiences on your resume (resume run through)?
Give an example of how you would sell an idea/product.
How would you go about getting information/requests from someone who is non-responsive?

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in December 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online. Within about a week, someone sent me an email asking to schedule a phone interview. The interview wasn't very personal - the interviewer asked generic questions such as "explain a time when you had a goal and how you achieved it" etc. Didn't seem like they wanted to get to know who they were actually talking to.

Interview Question – Explain a time at work when you did something wrong and how you fixed it.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in June 2010.

Interview Details – At this point, I've already had a phone interview with ABC, and it was very straight forward, they wanted to know about my resume experience, and what I liked about the job, etc... I'm waiting for the in person interview that they scheduled with me, and I'm hoping that it will go as well, if not better.
