Behavioral Interview Tips
The behavioral interview (often referred to as the "fit" interview) helps us better understand a candidate's interests, previous experience, and how he/she fits into the world of consulting and distinct Roland Berger culture. The interview is not designed to be stressful or taxing. Rather, the interviewer is attempting to get a sense of who the candidate is beyond the words on their resume.
Here are some examples of interviewer questions.
- What in the candidate's academic or work experience suggest they would be successful in a consulting role? This includes analytical skills, working on teams, working on short timelines, etc.
- How passionate are they about consulting?
- Do they have an understanding of Roland Berger and how it differs from other consulting firms?
- Do they bring industry experience and knowledge to Roland Berger that can be leveraged on their project work?
- What are the candidate's expectations for their day-to-day work in consulting and do they match they work being done by consultants at Roland Berger?
- What are the candidate's interests and pursuits outside of work and studies?
The behavioral interview is a reciprocal opportunity for both Roland Berger and the candidate to explore a potential fit. We encourage candidates to ask questions at any point during the interview.
