The recruitment processes have very high standards. The number of applicants reaches thousands. Dealing with this information has become a challenge: consulting firms have set up their own automatic selection system for applications. The resume is the key to this selection, it is the only weapon that the candidates dispose of before getting an interview.
More than 75% of candidates are never called back after their online application. This step is the first selection process for consulting firms, and the first selection criteria is the resume’s quality. It has to fit to the sector’s criteria: be perfectly formatted, without any errors be they on the alignment, spelling, language or typographical mistakes. Finally, certain criteria come directly from automatization, such as the use of keywords.
Writing a good resume that passes online screenings is nothing intuitive. Which is why it is imperative to have someone proofread and correct your resumer before sending it to your online application. AlumnEye offers the possibility of having your resumes corrected by professionals who are in charge of recruiting in banks, and who know the keywords for screenings and all of the rules proper to this sector. Thanks to this exclusive resume correction tool, you can download a corrected version of your resume with precise explanation which will maximize your chances during your applications in your chosen financial institutions.
Are you prepared for your interviews? Do you know how to answer to the most unnerving questions? Technical tests, logic quizzes, case studies, calculations, brain teasers, market-sizing, practical cases, trick questions.. In an extremely competitive recruiting context, it is essential to be prepared to real-life conditions. In this extremely competitive context, it is essential to be prepared for the real-life conditions of interviews.
Strategy Consulting firms are extremely selective during their interviews: among the selected candidates for the first round, less than 1 candidate out of 15 gets an offer in the best firms. AlumnEye gives you the possibility to train with professionals from the Top 3 strategy consulting firms (McKinsey, BCG, Bain) who know perfectly well how interviews go: market-sizing, mental calculations, case interviews, as well as the inevitable fit and personality questions.
It consists in a half-day individual training program reserved for 5 people maximum during which participants each participate in mock interviews for strategy consulting with our trainer. These interviews are based on the very same interview questions that are actually asked during interviews. Each mock interview is the commented and debated by the trainer and the other students in order to analyze in depth the negative and positive sides of each part of the interview, both in technical and fit point of views.
This real-life situation helps students put to the test all of the knowledge they have acquired during the AlumnEye Strategy Consulting seminar: competency-based questions, technical questions, brain teasers and news questions. It also enables students to get into real-life situations and try to manage their time, their stress, and learn how to react to unnerving questions from interviewers.

You’re stuck on a technical question? You’re a few days away from the interview in the consulting firm of your dreams and you’d like to have some feedback?
