Q. Can I apply to the Investment Analyst Program and the Onsite Analyst Program?
A. No, candidates cannot apply to the Investment Analyst Program and the Onsite Analyst Program in the same recruiting cycle. Candidates who do apply to both programs will be asked to select which program best aligns with their career goals before moving forward in the process.
Q. Will I be asked technical questions during the video cover letter portion of the application?
A. No, you will not be asked technical questions during the pre-recorded video portion of the application. The video is a great time to showcase why you are excited about Insight and the Private Equity/Venture Capital Space.

I stumbled into Insight as a summer analyst. I joined with no expectation of being here more than a summer. I had a hope to potentially be here longer, but even if I joined full-time, I had no expectation of being here more than the two-year analyst period. Here we are nearly 15 years later, and I bleed Insight orange and couldn’t be prouder of what we built together over those 15 years.Ryan Hinkle, Managing Director @ Insight Partners
