    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guy Carpenter.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty straightforward. The interview was roughly two and a half hours and included lunch. The in-office interviews were very informative for both parties, while the lunch was fun and a great way to meet fellow colleagues.
