    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    The interview process took about six weeks. Longer than normal due to Holiday season. Recruiter was very responsive, kept me informed and updated through out the process. I had more interviews than normal as my experience and background could fit for a few of the opened positions. The last interview was a panel of four different people. Be prepared to tie your experience, competencies and knowledge to real life scenarios, this can be done for any position you apply for. All the people I interviewed with were very laid back, easy to dialogue with and very professional. I noticed that everyone of them (I interviewed with about 7 people overall) were on very prompt either via phone or in person.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the person I interviewed with shared something she was working on that was very challenging. I think she wanted to get what I would do so I prompted questions to create alternatives. She has more Oracle technical understanding than I do but I brought more client, strategic and operation process. This is what Huron is looking for. A diverse background with maybe one or two special areas. Be able to speak to your desire to continuous learning and personal/professional development. They need people for tomorrow not just for today.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated the sign on bonus which was in my favor.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    Working through the interview process with Huron was a great experience. I started networking with them through career fairs and campus drop-ins in the fall of my Junior year. In the fall of my senior year I reached out to the campus recruiter, and upon confirming attendance to the information session I was invited to dinner with some analysts and other attendees of the information session who were also invited. It was a great time to get to know the recruiter. I got accepted to the first round interview, where I was asked several behavioral questions. I was then called back for the second round interview the next day. During this process all of the people I interviewed with were very friendly and interesting! The case based interview was not nearly as bad as I was anticipating, I just had to walk through questions I would ask given a certain scenario and the interviewer led me through the whole thought process. Make sure to bring paper and a pen! The final round interview flew me to Chicago. I got to meet with other applicants and held many conversations with interviewing analysts. In their headquarters we met the CEO and CFO. They are very inspiring men with a great vision for the company.

    If you want to work for this company, just come prepared. Do your due diligence and research the company and position throughly, and have a long list of questions as they pertain to the job, experiences of people who work in the company you will come across, and try and integrate what you have learned in college into your questions!

    Interview Questions

    • During the case-based interview there was a minor math portion. It was easy math, and for that reason I read past the last line of the prompt to calculate the amount of money saved. READ CAREFULLY!   Answer Question

    Interview

    Huron is a good company to work for. The interview process is similar to most other agencies in the field. You provide resume, references, and bar certifications. A recruiter calls you in for an interview. You fill out taxation papers in advance, which makes things easier when you actually start a project. The recruiter then interviews you as a candidate. He or she asks your experiences, career goals, area of interests, and relevant questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    I went through on-campus recruiting for Huron and received an interview with the Education division. The interview was pretty straightforward; it consisted of one behavioral interview and a case. Each interview was 45 minutes with separate interviewers. Behavioral questions were pretty typical; however, the case isn't similar to cases you would do for other consulting firms (McKinsey, Bain, Deloitte, etc.) It was more interview led. In other words, the interviewer asks you a question and instead of you coming back with follow up questions, you're supposed to derive an answer from the given information. This threw me off at first because it's totally different from anything I read in Case-in-Point or any other study guide. But fi you're prepared for it you'll probably do well because the question itself wasn't too hard.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly relaxed; it included two 45 minute sections. The first was a behavioral interview, with questions like: Name a time you've had to persist through a difficult task, Describe a time you've embodied leadership, etc. The second one included a pretty simple math question, followed by a situational question in which you describe how you would react in a certain scenario.

    Interview Questions

    • The second half of the interview process included a question regarding how you would improve processes in a hospital kitchen, which is somewhat tough but manageable.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Huron Consulting Group.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career services center and interviewed on campus, the process took about two weeks. The first round interview was a basic behavioral interview, nothing too difficult just questions like why Huron/Healthcare. I was informed that night that I would have a second round interview the following day, which consisted of another 45 min of behavioral and a 45 min case study/math problem. The case study was not as difficult as I thought it would be, it was pretty casual just make sure to ask a lot of questions and demonstrate your thought process. The behavioral was very tricky, however, and I believe this is the reason I didn't receive a 3rd round interview in Chicago. Make sure to tailor your answers towards the consulting industry and why you would be a good fit

    Interview Questions

    • Business Case: A hospital cafeteria is over budget, run through why this may be and how you would fix it.
      Behavioral: Tell me about your worst team experience and how you overcame it
