A question I am asked often is how to utilize all of the various frameworks and advice on frameworks out there on other case interview prep sites? First off I will say I am not familiar with what all of the case interview prep sites out there teach specifically but I do know many advocate for the use of a lot of frameworks, which I tend to disagree with, as under pressure it is very hard to remember that many things. I do not want free resources.

“Case study interviews put you in the driver’s seat: you’re given a real business problem to work through and solve. Every year, consulting firms get hundreds of applications and the human resource team will select those who have the skills to communicate why they are a candidate worth taking a chance on. A common trademark in the consulting recruitment process is the case study interview. Treat your interviewer as a client ( Deloitte US Careers, n.d. ).

BCG Interview

I received an email the other day from an F1Y (future first year) who recently got an offer following his BCG interview.

When these numbers materialize, interviewers often want you to calculate a breakeven volume (or the volume necessary to reach pre-determined business goals) and determine if such a volume is achievable.

My response is that the consulting case interview process in Europe is more similar than different when compared with the U.S. In Round 1, I see a lot more variation in the cases with some offices in some firms going with more of pre-structured type of case interview.

Humor in Case Interviews

CaseInterview.com

One issue that I would like your opinion on is to what extent humor can be a plus in an interview and where you would put the limit. I read in various sources that a touch of humor could help you in building a link with the interviewer, but in my opinion, it carries a lot of risk too. In one site providing a list with questions actually asked in interviews, I came across the following question: "What else would you like to be asked?". Some interviewers do this deliberately.

Case Interview Preparation Time

One of the most common questions I am asked is how much time is needed to prepare for case interviews ? They apply to MBB , have no idea what the industry is about, much to their surprise get an interview, and then for the next 72 hours they are Googling " what is management consulting.". Perhaps this is you, and your likely interview dates are weeks or months away. Do you prepare now for the case without knowing if you will get an interview? Additional Resources.

Case Interview Example – Capacity Change Framework

CaseInterview.com

I've had several requests to provide an example of a case involving the Capacity Change Framework as described in my case interview frameworks article. I did 60+ case interview questions and never saw this case even once. From an interviewer's point of view, this make this kind of case a bad one. Most case interviews you will see do not involve consumer markets. is really where the actual case interview starts (you didn't think it would be this "easy," did you?).

BCG Practice Case Interview Session

CaseInterview.com

A CaseInterview.com student who received an interview from BCG recently asked me about how a practice case study interview works. This is an interview where you practice with a BCG associate prior to your actual interview. My advice is I think it is best to assume this is a genuine offer to practice in advance of your actual interview. These practice interviews really are practice. The reality is case interviews are not typical interviews.
