Attributes We Look For

Success in a commercially-oriented, high-growth environment like ours requires more than credentials and certificates. It requires specific traits and character attributes. The people we hire demonstrate:

  • Drive
  • Results orientation
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Humility
  • Adaptability

Your Path at AlphaSights

As a commercially-driven business, we’re organized around our revenue-generating epicenter—our client services team (CST), who connects our clients to experts. Our structural teams support the continuous improvement, innovation, and functioning of our business. They include Legal and Client Protection, Finance and Administration, Marketing and Commercial Development, Recruiting, Professional Development, Operations, and Software Engineering.

Here’s what the career path for CST looks like.

Associate
As an Associate, you’ll serve demanding clients at private equity firms, hedge funds, top-tier consulting firms, and Fortune 500 companies. Your aim is to have clients rave about your excellent service and to view you as a partner, rather than service provider. The Associate position is for smart, savvy individuals who are excited by a hands-on, high-pressure role. You need to be responsive, professional, and focused on results.

Manager
After excelling as an Associate, the next step is the Manager role, which provides an opportunity very early in your career to develop into a versatile business leader. Our Managers ensure AlphaSights runs smoothly across geographies, time zones, and language barriers. They help recruit, train, and backstop Associates, and work on challenging projects. They also plan the months, quarters, and year ahead to ensure we can deliver for our clients.

Successful Managers may be promoted to Vice President at AlphaSights, or they may move into managerial or commercial roles at other successful companies, or attend leading business schools such as Harvard Business School, IESE or London Business School.

Vice President
Outstanding Managers are promoted to Vice Presidents, who act autonomously to develop and execute their own strategies for a given geographic region or market. Their remit includes winning new clients, growing existing accounts, recruiting and leading new team members, and firm-wide initiatives.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AlphaSights (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First, I had a video recorded interview where I was asked a few questions:
    1. Why Alphasights?
    2. What does Alphasights do?
    Very basic questions

    Then I had a video interview with a recruiter:
    1. What other jobs are you applying for?
    2. What does AlphaSights do?
    3. Why your college?
    4. Why your major?
    5. What skills do you hope to learn?
    6. What experiences led you here?
    7. Why shouldn't we hire you?
    8. Definitely know the track - associate, manager, VP. What you do and don't do in those positions.

    Finally, I went to AlphaSights where I had 2 interviews:
    1. First guy came in and asked me to go over the Bread Process
    2. Gave me 3 potential cases. I had to pick 2 and find 2 suitable consultants for each role in 15 minutes.
    3. We then went out how I messed up and what I did well.
    4. Had a fake phone call where I had to sell a potential advisor on the idea of working for Alphasights.

    5. Second guy came in and we went over my successes and failures of the previous interviewer
    6. I had a mock call with him as if he was a client and I had to sell him on the advisors that I had found in the last interview
    7. Why AlphaSights?
    8. Why college, why major?
    9. Walk me through resume?
    10. Basic questions that you can find on Glassdoor AlphaSights review
