You have an entrepreneurial spirit, are innovative by nature, and are continually creating new approaches, products, services and technologies.

NewForesight’s job application journey
We take our application process seriously. We want to get to know you, and of course you want to get to know us. Based on your cover letter, CV, interviews, case studies and references, we will determine if you have the right attitude, personal commitment, skills, and the team/culture fit to work at NewForesight.
Step 1: Online application
Send us your cover letter and CV
Step 2: Interview Round 1
The purpose of the interview is to get to know you better and meet you in person (If necessary, we can also conduct the interview over skype). Interviewing is crucial, but it’s not as intimidating as you might think. Take this opportunity to get to know NewForesight, ask questions, and above all be yourself.
Step 3: Interview Round 2
We believe the best way to assess your problem-solving skills is to discuss a real client scenario with you. This helps us understand how you would deal with tough, complex business challenges, identify important issues, deal with all the implications of facts and data, formulate conclusions and recommendations, and articulate your thoughts in a fast-moving discussion. Before this interview, we will send you our sample cases. This will help you become familiar with the format and you can test your problem-solving skills. We also explain some of the logic and thought processes behind the answers to help you practice.
Step 4: Contract offer
If you have successfully completed the above steps, and after careful consideration, we can offer you a contract and welcome you to our team! If you have been unsuccessful, we provide you with extensive feedback. Every new employee at NewForesight gets on-boarded on our Company Code of Honor. We take this code very seriously. In our everyday work, we remind each other to live by these values and reward others who have demonstrated the code of honor.
