Interview Preparation

Your interview is very much a two-way street.

For you, it is an opportunity to get to know us better — the kind of work we do, what our people are like, and how our firm tackles challenges and opportunities across industries around the globe.

For us, it is an opportunity to learn more about you — your career goals, your skills, your strengths and talents, and your passions, as well as areas you feel you would like to grow and develop.

Here are some helpful hints:

  1. Review the FTI Consulting Website

    Get to know our areas of expertise and where you see yourself making a contribution.

  2. Brush Up on Current Events

    Our consultants will be looking at how knowledgeable you are about what is happening in the world.

  3. First Round Interviews

    Interviews are held on campus, where you will meet with an FTI Consulting representative, typically at the Director level or above. The interview will last between 30 and 60 minutes. We utilize a combination of behavioral-based and traditional interview questions.

  4. Second Round Interviews

    These interviews generally take place in an FTI Consulting office. You will meet with three to six of our professionals and likely will be asked more technical or case-related questions. Office interviews likely will incorporate a networking event — lunch, dinner or other gathering — giving you the opportunity to really get to know our people and our firm. Make sure you conduct research beforehand on the group with whom you will be meeting so you can come prepared with questions.

  5. Receiving an Offer

    If we decide to make you an offer, it typically will be extended in writing within two weeks of your second round interview. If you accept, we will work with you to determine a convenient start date and help with your transition.
