Do you have any questions for us?
This is a key part of the interview! Please do not overlook it at all.
Ask questions about one the below 3:
-consulting industry (how have clients need evolve?)
-case (did you wind up proposing this to the client? which were the roadblocks during the project?)
-himself (which step of the consulting career did you like best?)
Ask stupid questions on:
-questions you can ask to HR (how long before I have an answer?)
-basic consuling career stuff (how often do you promote people?)
This is a very important part of the interview. Interviewers typically ask this question during the last 5 minutes of the interviews. This is the moment where you can show that you have done your research, you can ask things around:
- Office staffing structure - where do consultants typically work (office or client site, locally or internationally), do consultants have a say regarding staffing decisions (e.g., can they choose the type of topics to work on, client types, etc.)
- What do the interviewers like the most about working in their office or practice. Ask them to provide an example of a project they worked on, people love to talk about their experiences!
- Are there more strategy or implementation type of projects conducted in the office
As a last caveat, there are some awkward questions I was asked as an interviewer such as where do I see myself in 5 years or what are the things I don't like about the company, so try to avoid these questions.
