    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

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlphaSights.

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Most have already been mentioned but the one that threw me was a question about my entrepreneurial experience   Answer Question

    I was asked to submit a video assessment after I applied online. I haven't heard back from them yet. The whole process is not hard. The questions are mostly basic questions like: what do alphasights do, what is your long term goal, what is your interest, why do you apply to alphasights.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at AlphaSights.

    Interview Details

    Overall, negative and unprofessional experience.

    Shortly after applying online, they contacted me about the video interview submission. This was not difficult; just read and prepare the interview questions that others have posted. They use the same ones every time, I guess.

    After this, I spoke with one of the associates on Google Plus and the interview was pretty casual and asked very simple questions. They send you a sheet of questions to prepare for, so as long as you go through those, you should be good.

    The next step was their invitation for an on-site interview. They emailed me and asked me to provide some dates that I would be available to come visit the firm in New York. I emailed them on April 7th a list of available dates, and then I heard nothing from them until the 24th, when they called me to tell me that the position had been filled. The lady told me I was qualified but that 1. half the dates that I had given didn't work and 2. the other dates were too late in the process.

    I honestly was surprised at how unprofessional this process was. The lady never responded to any follow up emails, and should have contacted me if the dates that I provided weren't working out.

    Overall, the people in this firm seem nice, but disorganized.
