    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university recruiting system. Interview consisted of a 30 minute behavioral section, which ran over to about 40 minutes, and a shorter business case. I was asked to prepare a short presentation, but the behavioral component felt much more like a conversation than a strenuous interview. My interviewers were both really interesting to talk with, which I appreciated, because it was almost possible to forget that I was supposed to be stressing.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Prophet Brand Strategy.

    Interview Details

    There were two 30 min interviews. Both interviewers were really friendly. In one, I was given a hypothetical business situation where I had to provide a client with a suggestion to pursue or not pursue a new business option, explaining your analysis strategically, like a case. In the other, I had to casually give a 3 slide presentation I was asked to prepare about a brand that is under-leveraged or a good brand, giving recommendations for improvement for either. Was asked questions and had a good dialog, asked about the basis of my judgment for the brand I chose. Was asked the basic questions of why should we hire you, and why do you want to work here.
