Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in January 2017.

Interview

First step was two interactive case interviews including professional experience discussion. Also an online test. Second round was a presentation case of about two hours. Third round was two case interviews with partners, also kind of interactive cases but a bit more out of the box. This also included motivation for working at BCG and personal professional experience discussions.

    Interview

    Interview process was quick and included an introduction to case interviews workshop that allowed applicants to meet current employees.
