Market research position in consulting

Flo asked on Aug 17, 2016 - 2 answers

Hi guys,

I got an upcoming personal interview for a quant. market research position in a consulting agency.

Do you know whether there are also case studies that are focusing on market research?

Normally there are no cases for Research Team positions as you'll not be interviewed by consultants. However, it would be interesting to heavily understand the market you'd be focusing in should you be hired.

Hope this helps!

Hi Flo, how was your interview? Did they ask you to solve cases? I am also applying for non-consulting positions in consulting firms. I'd appreciate an answer!
