    Intense learning + a fearless client challenge + fabulous location & food + sworn camaraderie = ‪#‎CampKetchum‬. Peter Otten, Ketchum Brussels Managing Director & Camp Head Counselor, on what camp means to him and the firm:

    Camp Ketchum: The Future Is in Talented Hands

    I recently had the privilege of being one of two Head Counselors at Camp Ketchum. This year the training program for 80 of our brightest professionals was held in my home country, Belgium, in an old but stunningly renovated locale, Abbaye de la Ramée. In 2002, I had the pleasure of being a Camper myself.

    Average Interview


    I applied online – interviewed at Ketchum (New York, NY).


    Extremely dragged out. 1 phone interview and 2 interviews in person. In between each interview there was a week - two week gap. Worst part of it was that after going through the process for a month and a half it ended with no one contacting me back even though i contacted the recruiter and interviewer before. Interviewers were nice, Company seems good, but the process will drain you
