The 2021 Case Experience, hosted by Insight Sourcing Group, empowers the country’s top students to become the next generation of world-class consultants.
This May, a select group of students will be invited to this one day event that will challenge participants to deliver portions of a consulting project – in fast-forward. Participants will be placed into small teams with undergraduates from other universities and will be mentored by our experienced consulting team. Students will work alongside the Insight Sourcing Group team and will attend training sessions in order to gain experience building the core skills that all successful consultants need – problem solving, analytics, and client management.
The Important Details
Mark your calendars for these important dates and deadlines.
How the Case Experience Works
The Case Experience is typically held at Insight Sourcing Group’s office in Atlanta, GA and ISG typically covers transportation and accommodation expenses for participating students. However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are planning to hold the event virtually this year. Note: Students must submit the Case Experience application by February 12th and will be notified if they were selected for an interview by early March.
Starting with opportunity identification and ending with a client recommendation, the Case Experience will take students through portions of a consulting project in an accelerated, single day program. The format is designed so that students can participate in the Case Experience without it interfering with other summer internships.
Testimonials from Previous Case Experiences
Here’s what several students have said about the Case Experience in recent years:
``My favorite parts of the Case Experience were tackling a problem with students from other schools and getting to know members of the Insight Sourcing Group team throughout the day.``
``I thought the Interactive Negotiations session was a unique experience that I wouldn't have with another firm. From what I can tell, negotiations are a key aspect of ISG work, so it was useful in understanding how ISG is different from other consulting firms.``
``I loved hearing from the Executive Vice President who had been from ISG from the beginning. It was exciting to have access to the Senior leadership team who was able to speak honestly about the company and its trajectory.``
``It feels cliché to say I most enjoyed the Happy Hour, but I thought it was a perfect opportunity to get to know Insight Sourcing Group outside of work. I felt comfortable and that I could be myself, which is not an atmosphere you can fake.``
``The interactive sessions for presentations and negotiations were both very challenging but also rewarding. The ISG team members were extremely helpful, perceptive, and fun.``
``It was great to get to know the people at ISG more, an opportunity we may not get from just a one-day interview. It gave me a better understanding of the firm, culture, and type of projects.``
