Strategic Research Consultant Interview

Strategic Research Consultant
Washington, DC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Advisory Board in October 2012.

Interview Details – got an internal referral for the opportunity to interview.
got a call from HR to schedule a first round interview over the phone. the first round was a basic fit interview..what i am currently doing, why advisory board, research skills, and expected questions such as teamwork, writing skills.heard back in a week or so for another round of phone interview, which was a case interview..case interview was a hospital business related question. pretty basic actually if anyone has been reading any book on how to solve case interviews. helps to know some healthcare related cases.
heard back in a couple weeks. they asked me for a writing sample for which i sent them a published peer reviewed paper.got called to DC, three interviews and a writing test. interviews were with practice manager and 2 managing directors. apart from some basic questions, there were case interviews. unlike typical case interviews involving numbers, these were based more on discussions and broadly how you would tackle a given scenario. 'segmentation' is the key! writing test was to evaluate writing skills..they give an hour. the whole in person interview went pretty well i thought, and felt pretty good at the end of it.. a couple weeks later, unexpectedly, i didnt get an offer.

Strategic Research Consultant Interview

Strategic Research Consultant

The process took a day - interviewed at Advisory Board in February 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was a little odd. The person was nice and asked all the "standard" job interview questions but based on the reputation of the company, I expected a more in-depth, dialogue based conversational interview. This was very boilerplate, anywhere USA.

I would have liked the offer but from my understanding, the job would not have been a great fit and the interview was a little bit of a turn-off.
