FastMath Ace the Interview Workshop

Quantitative Skills are Critical for Many Job Interviews

Companies in a wide variety of industries assess the quantitative skills of candidates for roles in a number of job functions. Furthermore, these quantitive assessments generally require candidates to perform calculations and solve longer-form analytical problems without the use of a calculator or spreadsheet — all calculations must be done with pen-and-paper, or purely mentally, which many people find challenging. Some companies may have excel modeling as part of the interview process, but this is generally done in later interview rounds, only for candidates who pass the initial round of job interviews which have quantitative assessments without a calculator.

Quant assessments of job candidates occur in many industries such as Management Consulting, Investment Banking, Private Equity, Investment Management, Accounting, Finance, Real Estate, Marketing, Retail, and Fashion, and for many job functions such as Product Management, Product Marketing, Brand Management, General Management, Business Development, Analysts, Data Science and Strategy, and occurs at companies like Google, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Uber, Proctor & Gamble, McKinsey, Bain, and many others.

Since regular academic courses teach math, economics, or finance theory, but not calculation skills, many candidates find these quant assessments without a calculator very challenging. The FastMath Ace the Interview Workshop will help candidates prepare for these rigorous job interviews by teaching effective calculation and problem-solving skills for use without a calculator or spreadsheet, and is therefore an important component of your students overall career and professional development.
