I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (New York, NY) in May 2013.

Interview

I saw the recruitment posting for the summer research assistant position, which would last for 3 months. I sent my resume and an essay for the prompt that they provided (a page length) and they got back to me to schedule for a phone interview in a week, and about two weeks after that they told me to come in to their office.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Seoul (South Korea)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very clear and concise questions at first such as why are you willing to be a consultant? Then he went over with the resume and asked in detail. Case Interview was not really bad, but he wanted to be really clear. He recommended not to think as what I have been studying the case interview, rather he wanted to think as realistic as possible.

    Interview

    1. Resume screening: from what I know, HR does the screening, curtailing people who do not meet the minimum requirements but also most of the resume screening.
    2. First-round interview: at the office, asked about current events, asked me to read a piece from Times and develop a case study.
    3. Second-round interview: interviewed with three people, mostly case studies and guesstimation.
