Application process

You want to join us as a consultant or do an internship? Great! As soon as we have reviewed your application, we will conduct a multi-stage selection process during which you will get to know some of our consultants. Why do we take so much time for this? So that we can mutually assess whether we are a good fit for each other - you for us and we for you. After each of the application steps, we give you comprehensive feedback within 36 hours.

As part of our application process, we like to evaluate your deductive-logical, numeric, and verbal skills through a short online test. This test is just one part of our evaluation process and allows us to get a better understanding of your skills and how they align with our team. Plus, you can take the test from the comfort of your own home. 

Duration: 30 minutes

Mode: Virtual online test

Elements you might encounter:

  • Deductive-Logical exercises
  • Numerical tasks
  • Language skills exercises

Preparation tips:

  • Brush up on your math and logical reasoning skills: The test will include some related questions, so it's a good idea to practice similar exercises.
  • Take a deep breath and relax: Remember that the test is just one part of the application process.

In the interview, we want to get to know you on a personal level and see if we are a good fit for each other. Instead of creating an exam-like situation, we will have a dialogue at eye level. Our focus is on identifying your individual strengths and potentials for development. We are particularly interested in your ability to independently acquire knowledge and skills as needed. 

Duration: 1,5 hours

Mode: Virtual interview, a recruiter

Elements you might encounter:

  • A conversation focused on strengths, development, and problem-solving skills
  • Content questions and discussions
  • Brain teaser

Preparation tips:

  • Look at prominent metrics and business management methods
  • Practice case studies in the consulting environment
  • Find out about Telekom and the latest market developments

Here, we take several hours of time for you. Our goal: We test your analytical skills as well as your professional and social competencies in a typical customer project and simulate classic consulting situations in a role play. Also exciting for you: this is where you get to know your future supervisor.

Duration: 3.5 hours

Mode: Interview with two recruiters (partner and senior consultant) and one external recruiter.

Elements you might encounter:

  • Content-related questions and discussions
