Hi,

I've got an interview coming up with Spectrum and was wondering whether anyone could tell me more about the written exercise and the critical reasoning numeracy test.

Thanks in advance for your help

Just thought I'd refresh this thread. Surely there are other grads out there interviewing at Spectrum???

oi! to JY (#2)

ehm no. No dis-respect, but as a grad you have to first and foremost cut the rubbish that recruiters feed you.

Spectrum is niche and highly chaotic. When I was a grad, I met them and asked about the structure of thier programme. They just looked a bit lost, and told me that they 'throw the grads in at the deep end'. This is something i greatly dissagreed with.

I think that graduates need a top notch training scheme, mentoring, career progression and a coherent development path.

If you can get an interview there, surely you can get an interview with a big 4 or a strat house?

Thank for the advice oi. I have managed to get interviews at five other firms so, fingers crossed I shall have options, but like the sound of Spectrum due to their TMT specialisation. Would the numeracy test and written test be of a similar format to a GMAT/GRE exam?

So what's the opinion on Spectrum then? I've seen negative comments on this forum, for reasons as trivial as the aesthetics of their website, but also positive things; Tony spoke positively of them in one post. I would really appreciate opinions on their training and calibre of work that they do.

Thanks

FRT to JT (#5)

The training probably isn't much cop given the size of the firm and the anecdotal reports suggest similarly. It's a niche firm - reputation outside that niche is limited, but if you know what you want to do (TMT) then the client list is the proof of the pudding.
