Assessment Process

The assessment process for the above positions consists of several stages after you apply online. Please visit our Bain.com/careers website for interview preparation tips and expectations.

  • CV and cover letter screening. Responses will be sent within four weeks after the deadline for applying (irrespective of the decision). We recommend you to study our advises on preparing CV and cover letter.
  • Written case. This is the first live assessment stage conducted at one of our Bain offices. More detailed information about the written case could be found here, and case examples are available here.
  • First round case interviews. Candidates who pass the written case will move onto this stage. You will meet with two consultants or case team leaders in turn with each meeting lasting 60 minutes: 10 of them are spent to meet the interviewer and to tell the interviewer about yourself and your previous experience; 45 minutes are spent to describe the business task and resolve it verbally (you may take notes on paper and take time to think); you may use the remaining 5 minutes at the end to ask questions. Case interview example could be found here.
  • Second round case interviews. Applicants who move on to the second round of case interviews will meet with Bain managers and principals. Format will be identical to the previous round.
  • Third round interviews. The third round of interviews is the most important one: you will be interviewed by the company partners. If you pass this stage successfully, you will receive a job offer. See the next tab for potential start dates for new employees.
