Our Interview Process Is Like Our Work Environment. Challenging. Exciting. Fun.
With a mix of conversational and case interviews, our approach is designed not only to get to know you and to understand more about your strengths and interests but also to enable you to learn more about our people and our business.
These interviews provide the opportunity for us to find out more about your background and interests, as well as for you to learn about our firm. Ultimately, our goal is to assess and understand your interest in business and your goals for the future. You can expect to hold a conversation with your interviewer about your accomplishments, experiences, interests, and career objectives. This is also a good opportunity to ask questions about Oliver Wyman.
The case interview is an interactive exercise in analytical thinking that allows us to assess how you approach and evaluate a problem. There are many types of cases; all are designed to allow you to demonstrate your problem-solving abilities. And you’ll learn a lot about the kinds of problems we solve for our clients since many of your case interviews will be based loosely on real-world challenges.
