How can you apply?
The coronavirus pandemic has led to many process changes and requires flexibility. Still, we keep our recruiting efforts high and are continuously looking for new talents. The fact remains that you can apply throughout the year, ideally 3 months prior to your preferred start date. Our Recruiting Day, consisting of 2-3 case study interviews, now simply takes place online! In case of an offer, we will make sure that you still have a good experience and accompany your onboarding process in close coordination and conduct your first day digitally together with the other new joiners.
What does an ECON Recruiting Day look like?
An ECON Recruiting Day consists of two interview rounds. We start the day with a company presentation, followed by two case-based interviews with our senior management. The day offers you the chance to get to know our team and find out more about your individual career opportunities. After the interviews, we are pleased to invite you to an informal lunch with our consultants who are not involved in the recruiting process. In the meantime, our interviewers will compile the results from the first round. If the morning was a success, we will then invite you to a final interview. In this interview, two more interviewers will take time to confirm the positive impression conveyed during the first round and remove any concerns. On the same day, we will provide you with personal feedback, and successful candidates will receive a contract offer.
What to expect in the interviews
Each interview consists of three parts:
A review of your resume, in which we ask you questions on your expertise and personal background as well as what motivates you. This is followed by a case study aimed at finding out how you approach strategic problems and what solutions you can come up with. Finally, you have the chance to ask us your questions.
How to prepare for the interviews
Our interviews are aimed at getting to know you personally and at obtaining an impression of your problem solving skills. To ensure that these interviews are a success, you should be able to provide us with convincing reasons as to why you are the right candidate. Furthermore, you should familiarize yourself with how to solve case studies. We also recommend the interactive case-study online platform PrepLounge.
