Challenging and varied assignments – we do projects in various industries, companies of different sizes and with varied challenges. Usually we are part of the whole process from strategy and analysis to reaching targets together with our client.

Some of our colleagues

My name is Alexander and I have recently been in the above-described recruitment process. All consultants at Axholmen have, in addition to their role as a consultant, the opportunity to take internal responsibility for driving the development of Axholmen as a company. As a new addition to the team, I have taken shared reasonability for our Associate recruitment. This includes hosting a student event and the recruitment day during fall.
If you have any questions about the event, recruitment process or what it is like to work at Axholmen, contact me at alexander.fahnehjelm@axholmen.se. Hope to see you this fall!

Alexander Fahnehjelm

What I like most about Axholmen is the fantastic culture we have in combination with all the exciting projects. Already as an associate, you are encouraged to participate in business development through internal commitments, which is a lot of fun! At the same time, you are surrounded by supportive colleagues and can easily combine being a management consultant with a life outside of work.

Isabelle Vännström

The recruitment process is of course challenging in that you get to experience the traditional business case method as well as logical assessments, but it is also a lot of fun. When I went through it, I felt supported every step of the way and sensed that the people I met throughout the process really wanted me to succeed. After both doing a 3-month internship and working full-time for some time after graduating, the feeling of team spirit and support has only grown. Axholmen brings the best of what Consulting has to offer; challenging projects from a diverse range of businesses and industries and a steep learning curve, coupled with a supportive environment where everybody wants you to succeed. Feel free to contact me at felix.magnusson@axholmen.se if you want to know more. I am happy to have coffee or launch any time.

Early client exposure in combination with the opportunity for internal responsibilities has made the first time at Axholmen a perfect start to my carrier. Personally, the amazing culture is the best part of Axholmen, as we always have a lot of fun together. At Axholmen, you are surrounded by supportive colleagues who encourage you to reach your goals.

Right from the first contact with Axholmen I experienced a clear focus on actual results, but also the way to get there. During my first time as an employee this has been confirmed in several ways, ranging from how the projects are focused on real improvements for the customers, to the fact that a usual day at the office is characterized by nice colleagues and a culture where every question is welcome.

Albin Wulfsberg

    Interview tips

    Interview process for students

    Before recruiting students for our Associate positions, we organize a recruitment day.

    If you are selected, you will be called to either the morning or afternoon of the recruitment day. You will complete an analytical test and three case interviews on-site at our office. See below for tips to consider before the interviews.

    Be prepared for the interviews:

    • Think about why have you applied to Axholmen and why you would be a good fit
    • Understand the requirements profile and think about your demonstrated strengths and weaknesses
    • Write down your expectations and questions about Axholmen
    • Practice on case examples, even if you have previous experience from case interviews

    During the case interview:

    • Ask clarifying questions – your interviewer is not your enemy
    • Do not panic if the industry in question is new to you – you are not expected to know it
    • The interview is a chance to show who you are and how you behave as a consultant
    • Do not get lost in the details – focus on the essentials and use hypothesis
    • Sum up the case interview and present your recommendations
