    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through university. First round interview was two 30 minute cases. Second round interview was on-site. It involved a rather long group case interview, a 30 minute individual case interview, and a 30 minute fit-interview. The group case was the largest part of the interview. We were given a 20 page packet of information about a client case. The case was about re-vamping the marketing strategy of a struggling snack company. We were asked to prepare a presentation on how we would advise them. The one-on-one case was about whether or not a client should enter a new market, it involved a market sizing exercise and it was pretty straight-forward. The fit interview was also very straight forward. Generally, the interviewers were very nice and I felt pretty relaxed through the whole interview.
