Who We Are Seeking
We are seeking motivated individuals to solve challenging problems and to become client and firm leaders
We are always looking to find new talent who will bring value to our clients and the firm. Our focus is on enhancing clients’ bottom-line performance through leading the development of innovative solutions to complex, high-stakes problems and driving implementation of these solutions. We seek people who can solve problems and drive the idea process, who are curious and want to learn, who are passionate about results, and who will become client and firm leaders.
Ideal applicants possess the following qualities:
- Intellectual curiosity and the ability to learn rapidly
- Exceptional quantitative analytic skills
- Well-developed problem solving skills
- Ability to conduct primary & secondary research
- Excellent speaking, writing, and presentation skills
- Outstanding interpersonal skills
- Ability to interact with clients and guide fundamental change
- A passion for helping your team and contributing to the firm
- Demonstrated leadership experience
Our interview process is an opportunity for us to learn about who you are, how you think, what your career goals are, and how well-suited to the type of analytical and problem-solving work we do at Dean and Company. It also is your chance to find out more about Dean & Company – who we are, how the firm works, our mission to create value, and our mutual fit.
Our interview process largely relies on the “case interview” format, which allows us to assess how you structure and solve an open-ended business problem. In addition, during the case interview or separately, we will discuss your past experiences and goals for the future.
Case interviews should not be viewed as “tests” with right or wrong answers but rather as an opportunity to demonstrate problem structuring, logical thinking, clear communication, and creative insight generation. While our experience has shown these case interviews to be an effective method for us to gain insight on important aspects of a candidate’s capabilities, academic achievement, leadership roles, and relevant work experience are also considered in the decision to extend offers.
In the attached presentation, “How to Crack the Case”, we provide tips on preparing for the interview process and sample cases interview questions.
