Consultant Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FactSet.

Interview Details – Intervview was pretty straight forward. First I got to do 3 tests, en mathematical, one financial and one for Microsoft Excel. After passing the tests they held an interview where I did a presentation of a financial topic and I was asked questions why I wanted to work at Factset, how I think I would fit in an Factset environment and so on. They also asked a lot about what I knew about Factset, their products, offers and their competitors.

Interview Question – The questions were not so difficult and much in line with what you would ecpect from an interview. The thoughtest one were probably the ones that where about their competitors.   View Answer
