It's the interviewees time to ask questions to the interviewers - What to ask an experienced consultant

Anonym A fragte am 18. Feb 2019

Every interview consists of more than one part. After going through your resume and talking about the possibilities within the organization it's time for you to ask good questions. But what do you ask someone who is working in consulting for a couple of years without seeming to be stupid? What else can you ask except whether they like their job and what they hate about it?

Best wishes

Hi,

First of all - never ask why someone hates the job. You'll fail the interview:)

The main objective is to have a good conversation and highlight your intellectual capacity and curiosity. Thus:

It is ok to ask:

  • Questions that cause positive emotions and highlight consulting pros (e.g. Mck people)
  • Questions on the topics you are excited about (e.g. data science)
  • Non-business questions (e.g. team retreats)

It's not ok to ask:

  • Questions that can cause negative emotions (e.g. work hours)
  • Information you should learn before the interview (e.g. typical career path)
  • Questions that may show that you are unfamiliar with consulting work (Like are you specialized in strategy or operations?)

Be prepared and good luck!
