General Questions

In general, consulting is about providing expert advice or solving problems for a specific group of people, usually a company. Traditionally, business consulting focuses on the field of finance, advising companies on how to best allocate their resources to solve their problems or achieve higher profits.

Tech consulting, on the other hand, deals with the technological aspect of business. We design websites to represent brands. We develop apps to automate internal operations. We build databases to organize information.

In short, tech consulting is about maximizing the business utility of technology.
Atlas Digital and Strategy are each branches under the Atlas Organization as a whole, but we're distinct groups—while Strategy focuses on solving more traditional business problems, Digital specializes in tech consulting.

We do share certain events such as mass meetings, social mixers, and professional development sessions (resume workshops, LinkedIn reviews, et cetera), but we have separate objectives, clients/projects, and meetings.
All new members start as Analysts- each Analyst is assigned to work on one of the semester's projects under the mentorship of a Project Manager. After being a part of Atlas Digital for at least one semester, active members are eligible to apply for a leadership position such as Project Manager or Executive Board Member.

Project Managers have many responsibilities. Aside from working on a project alongside the analysts in their team, a Project Manager must also organize regular team project meetings, delegate tasks, communicate with clients, and convey project goals and progress to the Executive Board.

Depending on the specific position, Executive Board Members take on a wide range of responsibilities, from client acquisition to booking venues.
Roughly 5-6 hours a week.

All members are expected to attend a mandatory weekly meeting. Weekly meetings range from an hour to an hour and a half long, and they are generally either club logistics meetings or developmental workshops. Past workshops have been about resumes, SQL, multithreading, and even course-planning.

Furthermore, each member will attend a weekly hour long meeting with their project team. At these project meetings, Project Managers can delegate tasks and communicate progress with the team members. Additionally, members are expected to work on their projects outside of these meetings, with the time required dependent on the project and its deadlines.

Application Questions

Complete the online application linked above before the deadline. Then, if selected, we will reach out to you for an interview via email.
None!

That is, we do not look for candidates who have proficiency in specific coding languages or technologies (although technical experience certainly will not hurt you!). Rather, we evaluate our applicants holistically based on their potential to contribute and grow in Atlas Digital.

That being said, common traits that successful Atlas Digital candidates share include:
  • Demonstrated academic and extracurricular aptitude
  • Adaptability and the ability to learn quickly
  • Leadership skills and the ability communicate ideas concisely and clearly
  • Knack for problem solving
  • Genuine interest in the goals and values of Atlas Digital
If you receive an invitation by email, you will have the opportunity to attend an in-person interview consisting of a series of behaviorial questions and a few technical questions.
A technical interview is an interview format where we give you a programming problem, and you are to solve the problem while explaining your solution and thought process out loud. The programming problem is mostly algorithmic, meaning that we are not testing your depth of knowledge in any specific language, but rather, we are assessing how you think, solve problems, and most importantly, communicate your ideas.
You shouldn’t need to! The technical question will be designed to gauge for an aptitude in natural problem-solving and communication abilities.

That being said, if you are still set on preparing, try solving some easy to medium level problems on technical interview preparation sites such as LeetCode or Hackerrank.
