Research Analyst Intern Interview

Research Analyst Intern
Boston, MA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Egon Zehnder in March 2013.

Interview Details Initial phone screen with basic questions about my resume. Called back for a case study in office. Gave an example search and asked you how you would go about the search process. They then walk you through the steps of what actually happened and let you know where you were strong and where else you could have looked. Final phase was another phone screen with a higher ranking research analyst much like the first one, just getting to know you and your resume. Whole process took about 2 weeks.

Interview Question – No specific question, more the case. Need to be able to think outside of the box pertaining to a search strategy.   Answer Question

Intern, Research Analyst Interview

Intern, Research Analyst
Palo Alto, CA (US)

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Egon Zehnder in June 2012.

Interview Details I contacted the company because I was in the area and needed some work experience before applying to jobs. The phone interview was pretty boilerplate, standard behavioral questions (greatest strengths, why interested in company, etc.) After the interview ended, I was asked to come in to the company for a one on one interview, where I was told I would be given a test. I haven't completed the 1:1 interview yet, so no word on contents of the interview or test.
