    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Was emailed about having a phone interview. When the time came, the interviewer was 5-10minutes late and the interview only lasted about 15 minutes. Very basic, didn't ask anything too difficult. Went in for an in-person interview. It lasted pretty much all day and included a writing sample. The case studies were difficult. My thought process wasn't quite matching up for what they were looking for

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Referred by an employee. Took about 3 weeks for HR to contact me to schedule a phone interview. Questions were generic, resume-based questions: How has your writing changed throughout college? What is your research background? Why do you want to work for ABC? Why did you choose your college? About a week and a half later, I received an email from someone else in HR telling me that they couldn't offer me a position.
