Q: Are you able to accept late applications?
A: Unfortunately, due to the timeline with which we evaluate applications, we are unable to read any applications that are submitted past the stated application deadline.
Q: I applied to 180DC in the past but was not accepted. Am I allowed to re-apply at some point in the future?
A: Yes. We recognize that the application process is competitive, and that your circumstances may change over time. Re-applying is an indicator of continued interest, and will therefore be judged as a positive rather than negative aspect of your application profile.
Q: I am unable to attend either information session. Will this negatively impact my application?
A: No. We highly encourage applicants to attend one of the information sessions to learn more about the organization and network with some of our members, however if you are unable to make it, your application will not be evaluated differently.
Q: What is the weekly time commitment associated with being a Business Analyst for 180DC?
A: Roughly 5 hours per week. This includes organization-wide meetings, project group meetings, and any research/tasks Project Managers may assign to Business Analysts. There may be some variation depending on the stage of a project, however we are considerate about our members' academic commitments and strive to work around them. Our members have typically found it very manageable to accommodate this commitment alongside other academic and extra-curricular involvement.
Q: Are the first/second round interviews behavioral, technical or case interview?
A: Both the first round and second round interviews will have aspects of all of the above three interview formats. Both interviews will have behavioral questions, market sizing estimations, and formal cases. For more information regarding the different types of interview formats, and how to prepare, please visit the "Interview Guidance" section of this website.
