Coaching/Applications/Interviews and Brand New to Cases

Anonym A fragte am 3. Jan 2019 - 2 Antworten

Hi PrepLoungers/Experts! I am new to this site. Through networking I have made some good connections and people have offered to refer me to some MBBs and in-house consultancies in Germany. I was very occupied last year with some health issues and was not able to begin practicing cases until now. I have read a lot but never actually done one which I know I need to do. I have zero business background so I guess I just don't know where to start. Are case partners on here willing to do a practice case with a total newbie? Unfortunately there's no one in my real-life at the moment I can ask for help.

One of the people who said they can refer said that if I am invited for an interview it could come as soon as in just a couple of weeks so I obviously need to do a lot ASAP as I don't want to waste an opportunitity if I do get an interview. I know I can push the interview but early February is as late as I can do so as my current living/job situation needs solid commitments for the new year from me by mid-Feb. I know a coach would help greatly, however I also don't want to spend a lot of money on coach if I don't end up with any interview invitations as right now my financial situation is rather precarious.

Any advice is welcome and appreciated.

I believe it might make sense to adopt the following strategy:

1. Concentrate on proper preparation with excellent case partners/experts

2. Make sure your written applications (CV, cover letters, referrals) are on point!

2. Once you feel really comfortable on fit, cases and your application, apply to all Tier2 firms

3. Continue practicing cases!

4. Schedule interview days with the Tier 2 firms

5. Once T2 interviews are scheduled, apply to MBB

6. Continue practicing cases!

7. Go through T2 interviews and get used to the setting (if you focused your preparation on MBB, you will realize that interview formats and cases might be a bit different at T2 firms, but don't get irritated by that fact). Try to get at least one offer (this is a great psychological help!)

8. Schedule interview days with the MBB firms that invited you

9. Continue practicing cases!

10. Nail interviews with MBB firms and celebrate your offer(s)!
