Successful Candidate Attributes

​​​​​​​
We're excited to get to know you better as you begin the recruiting process with Mastercard. To help you prepare for your interviews, here is some insight into how we identify the skills and attributes of candidates that will make an impact at Mastercard.
Structure & Solve Problems
Upon joining Mastercard, you will face difficult challenges all of the time, from quickly learning about a new industry you know nothing about, to doing a new task or analysis you may have never seen. What is an example of when you've had to face a difficult challenge or solve a tough problem? What did you learn along the way?

Present & Communicate Clearly

Communicating ideas and recommendations through both compelling visuals and live presentations are part of our every day work. Think about a time when you've had an important idea you wanted to share and communicate. How did you get your message across to your audience?
Manage Clients
​​​​​Building proactive partnerships and relationships with clients is one of the most important parts of our roles; client management can be easy when things are going well but, at times, we also have to handle difficult conversations. Think about some of the relationships you've had with fellow students, mentors, professors, or colleagues - what do you do to make those relationships work? What makes them challenging?
Be A Team Player
At Mastercard, we work together on projects to solve problems. Working alongside our colleagues is part of the fun and we look for individuals who enjoy team work and collaborating with others. Think of an example that illustrates the role you have played within a team.
Represent Mastercard's Culture
Our employees embody our culture, demonstrating our organizational values and contributing positively to the team environment. The "Mastercard Way" and decency quotient underscore our culture across the company. The Mastercard Way emphasizes our relentless customer focus while owning challenges and opportunities, simplifying solutions, taking thoughtful risks, and moving with a sense of urgency. 
Understand Our Business
Mastercard employees need to have a deep understanding of our business and how to leverage our teams, products, solutions, and expertise to drive value for our clients. Why are you interested in this role with Mastercard? Think of what aspects of Mastercard's business appeal to you compared to other companies you've researched, whether culture, mission, project format, etc.
