Difficult Interview


The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Economist Group in September 2009.


the skills test comprised of a three and a half hour long test on microsoft excel, report writing and report editing. The excel test was not difficult in terms of excel based skills: however, it did require a good knowledge of economic formulae in order to be able to answer the question. The report involved writing a report based on data given on your country of choice. This was relatively straight forward. The editing test was challenging and required a good knowledge of grammar and punctuation alongside a strong understanding of their in house style.
