    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nera Economic Consulting.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume and cover letter through college career website. Got a phone interview. No technical and pretty much just behavioral/fit questions. It probably helped that I have networked with people from the firm before but I'm not entirely sure.

    Research Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied through career center on campus. Had a first round interview that was just behavioral questions. Final round interview was 3 hours in NYC, where it was basically just all behavioral again. I'm not really sure why they don't do any case study questions, but that was my experience.
    It helps a lot if you have research experience, as that's about 90% of what they asked me about in every interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Just a bunch of questions about my honors thesis, why I chose to use a certain type of regression, how I controlled for certain variables, assumptions I made, etc.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    30 minute behavioral interview. Was asked why economic consulting and what my favorite previous work experience has been. Second round would consiste of 6 one on one interviews. Experience with R, MATlab, SASS etc is definitely a plus. Huge stress on the ability to analyze large sets of data. Job requires minimum traveling especially for consulting.
