    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AlphaSights.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via a form, it was easy and simple. No cover letter required in the traditional sense, just state your motivation for the role in about 250 words. Then I received an invitation to a online interview, which I had to complete within 3 days. The questions were:
    - What does AlphaSights do?
    - Why did you apply for a role with us?
    - Who do you admire the most?
    - What other positions are you interested in?

    Interview Questions
    • I guess it was 'Who do you admire the most?' as the person you chose to speak about directly reflects your interests/aspirations, so you have to be careful who you pick.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume, I was asked to take an online video interview. There were several questions and it took about five minutes. It is like TOEFL speaking test that I had a few seconds to prepare for the answer and have 1-2 minutes to speak. It is a little bit weird.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are behavioral ones, for example: Give us an example of your leadership; what re you passionate about?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlphaSights in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume and was contacted to complete the short online interview. 8 or so questions. You're talking to a screen with no one on it so it was a little strange. Prepare beforehand by looking at other's questions because they seem to recycle them. Make sure you spend enough time on the practice screen to get your shot right.

    Went through the video interview first and now onto Skype. Questions were mostly fit and testing your knowledge of what AlphaSights is. Know your resume and be able to incorporate it into questions. Practice the video answers prior.

    Interview Details

    I applied via my university career center. Was contacted immediately to submit video interview. Fairly straightforward but definitely awkward, which is probably the point of the exercise. Was contacted shortly after to interview via Skype. Very generic interview consisting of answering questions about my resume and experiences. Notified a few days later that I did not receive the position.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straightforward, it was an online video interview where you talked to your computer and answered questions. Not super difficult. It was odd to talk to a computer so I recommend getting as comfortable with talking to your laptop as possible.
