APPLICATION PROCESS
Please refer to the guidelines listed below before starting the application.

  1. Online Application: Please answer the questions listed below in English. The questions are framed to give us a clear picture of each applicant’s background, skills, and experience. The deadline to apply is July 31, 2017. 
  2. Initial Interview:  A select group of candidates will be invited for a preliminary interview with a member of the Agora Team in August. The goal of this interview will be to interact with candidates in more depth, as well as to understand the applicant´s fit for the organization. Candidates will be asked to complete a business strategy case during the interview. Applicants should schedule an initial interview within 5 days of receiving the interview request.
  3. Second Round Interview: Following the initial interview, top candidates will be invited for a second round interview in September. Candidates will be asked to complete a second case prior to this interview. The purpose of the second interview will be similar to the first, but with two other members of the Agora team, and to test knowledge and ability related to financial modeling. After the second interview, Agora may contact the references provided in this application for top candidates only.
  4. Offers: Upon completion of second round interviews, the Agora Team will select the final group of 2018 Consultants. Offer letters will be sent in October. Candidates may receive a follow-up email or phone call with any final questions before offer letters are sent. Selected candidates must respond to offer letters before the date stated in the letter or may risk losing their offer. Consultants should plan to begin on-boarding in Mexico in early January 2018.
