- Interns given real responsibility from day one (travel on cases, interact with clients and perform meaningful work towards the success of their assigned case)
- Constant personal feedback and guidance
- Work Culture (fun events, non-hierarchal, people get lunch together, genuine relationships between co-workers)
- Cases are high level and working with Fortune 500 type companies
- Some long nights (but nothing that's not worth it)
- No formal training so there can be a small learning curve in the beginning
I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Applied Value (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.
At my university, Applied Value hosted an information session and then hosted an open bar happy hour meet and greet. I went to the meet and greet and met two current analysts, an intern from the previous summer, and one partner.
After the happy hour they had their formal application process which included a standard resume and cover letter.
The next step is to take a 30 minute math test. If you have not taken intro finance, you should learn the basic terms and calculations. I had not taken a finance class and did not do well on the math test. That was the end of the interview process for me.
