Participating in Challenges
What types of Case Challenges are hosted on WeSolv?
WeSolv features a diverse array of Case Challenges tailored by the hosting companies. These aren’t just hypothetical exercises; they’re real projects aligned with the roles these companies are actively recruiting for. This ensures participants gain tangible, job-relevant experience that goes beyond theory. While our platform sees a broad range of challenges, past examples include product marketing and competitor analysis, new product launches, mobile app go-to-market strategies, and company valuation and analysis projects. These have been created by both well-established enterprises and dynamic growth stage companies.
How do WeSolv Case Challenges differ from other case competitions?
At WeSolv, we’re redefining case competitions. Our Case Challenges are grounded in real-world projects that companies are actively hiring for, allowing participants to dive into relevant, hands-on tasks. This not only bridges the gap between academic exercises and professional scenarios but also offers an unparalleled learning curve. Participants can select challenges aligned with their interests and collaborate with peers nationwide, breaking the usual classroom boundaries. And it doesn’t stop at just taking part; our platform lets you track performance across challenges, offering a clear view of growth areas. Plus, every challenge comes with feedback, giving participants clear insights into their strengths and where they can improve.
What are the qualifications for participating in a Case Challenge?
The primary qualifications vary for each Case Challenge based on the company’s requirements. Always refer to the Challenge Page for specific criteria and requirements.
Do I need a team to participate in a Challenge?
While many of our Case Challenges are structured for team collaboration, there are also Case and Quickfire Challenges that may cater to individual participation. The specific team size requirement for each challenge can be found on its respective Challenge Page. And if you’re without a team, no worries! WeSolv’s platform offers an avenue for participants to find and connect with potential teammates.
What do I do if I do not have a team but want to participate in a Challenge?
No worries! WeSolv can help you find a team so you can still participate. Once you apply to join a Case Challenge, you can select “Looking for a team” on the Case Challenge page or your profile page to indicate to other WeSolvers that you are looking for teammates. You can sort WeSolvers by “Looking for a Team” to see other WeSolvers looking for a team and send messages to each other. You can also invite other qualified teammates offline, but be sure that all team members sign-up on the platform and your team completes all application requirements before the team sign-up deadline.
Are international students eligible to participate?
Yes, international students who are U.S. residents and are enrolled in or have recently graduated from business-related graduate programs at a U.S. university are welcome to join WeSolv and engage in Challenges. However, specific eligibility criteria might vary on a Challenge by Challenge basis. Always ensure to check individual Challenge details for any specific requirements.
What is a typical Challenge timeline?
The Challenge timeline depends on the type of Challenge. Typically, a Quickfire Challenge is 1 to 7 days long and a Case Challenge is 3 to 6 weeks long. All Challenges should be considered extracurricular activities and shouldn’t interfere with typical school work and other academic commitments.
How does WeSolv ensure a fair and unbiased evaluation process?
WeSolv employs objective performance metrics and blind review processes for Challenge submissions, ensuring that all participants are assessed purely on merit and the quality of their work. This mitigates any potential biases and ensures a level playing field for all participants.
What do I receive when the Challenge ends?
Participating in a Case Challenge will give you the opportunity to sharpen your skills, and are a relevant experience to add to your resume. In addition, participants may have access to company decision-makers at hiring companies, interview opportunities, and the chance to win prize money and awards.
