    Negotiation

    I fell in love with the company through the interview process, so there was not much negotiation required as I was super excited about the offer and decided not to proceed with any of my other interviews at the time. My second interview was with the President of the company. Not only was he great and super knowledgable and insightful, but I felt like that was such a unique opportunity that the President of this company would take the time out of his day to meet with a prospective intern.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clarkston Consulting (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke to Clarkston at the Biotechnology career fair at my college. A week later, I received a call for an on campus interview. I thought the interview went pretty well, but the person interviewing me was very intimidating and my phone went off during the interview which is a huge red flag so I was nervous I wouldn't get a call back but I did. I visited onsite two weeks later, and I spoke to my recruiter, a current associate, and a partner. I also had to prepare and present a 15 minute presentation. Overall, everyone was very friendly and organized. I am waiting to hear back for a final decision.
