    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marakon (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through my college's career center website. Did an over the phone case interview. The final round was in their office in NYC. Three 45 minute interviews. First was a highly quantitative case. Second was exclusively fit questions––very relaxed. Third was more qualitative case––they give you a case to read through, leave the room for 15 minutes and then ask you questions about it. We had extra time so we did some brain teasers.
