There are usually four projects a semester. A project usually consists of one project leader, one advisor (more senior member), and four to five consultants who will be working together throughout the semester to solve a real-time issue or question faced by our client. At the end of the semester, we present our work to the client during an in-person deliverable.
Yes. If you are selected to move forward after the initial application, we will hold a 30-minute interview where you will be asked both behavioural and technical questions. If you then advance to the final round, you will be invited to a social round to interact with our members in an informal setting and we will hold a one hour interview with you that will be similar in structure to your first round interview.
For the behavioral portion of the interview we recommend you prepare answers for common questions regarding your past academic and professional experiences, suitability for Voyager, interest in consulting, as well as strengths and weaknesses. To best prepare for the technical portion of the interview, we recommend attending our case workshop where we walk you through one of our past case interviews. You can also use external sources (i.e. Victor Cheng’s book Case In Point) to learn how to better tackle case interviews.
The case workshop teaches you how to tackle case interviews - ones that you’ll see in our interview and in real consulting firms. In small groups, we walk you through one of the cases we have used in the past during interviews.
Absolutely not! We take pride upon the fact that our members come from diverse academic backgrounds. Our current members study Business Administration, EECS, Statistics, Public Policy, and many more. We are looking for applicants who demonstrate genuine passion and commitment to the organization, who have a strong foundation in critical thinking skills and can bring fresh perspectives to our project teams.
