Mein Ansatz

Are you looking for both concrete case/interview feedback and a concrete plan for how to reach your goals? Think of me as your interview personal trainer. I will:

  1. Be your casing, interview, and application partner - giving you feedback on your strengths and weaknesses, and providing concrete interviewing tips
  2. Review your goals, where you stand, and what you need to do to get there.

WHAT I OFFER

Any combination of the below offerings are available based on your needs

  1. Diagnostic - A "prepardness" analysis based on targeted questions around # of cases completed and types, comfort level in behavourals and cases, goals (companies, geographies,deadlines, etc.) and more. From this, we can discuss ideal next steps and I can provide answers to questions, doubts, etc.
  2. Training Plan - A personalized plan for how to reach ready-state, working back from your deadline. This includes (but is not limited to):
    1. # of cases/week and types to target (incl. case material)
    2. Proven templates for managing progress, based on needs (case tracking template, behavioural preparation, application tracking, industry research template etc.)
    3. Schedule of follow-up sessions (checkpoints, case/behavioural interviews, full interview simulation)
  3. Case/Behavioural Interview - one-off or package purchase of mock interviews based on indentified gaps (e.g. math-heavy, financials, market entry, etc.)

Why Me

Track record - I did not recieve a "we regret to inform you" email from any of the 8 companies I interviewed with. Furthermore, I reached this in just three months, starting from a base of absolutely 0 (casing knowledge, business knowledge, industry/market knowledge etc.)

Recency - I lived and breathed recruiting just a few years ago. I've seen what works and what doesn't. I've organised student-run preparation groups and helped dozens of my peers land consulting jobs

Efficiency - I focus on the "how" not the "what. It's not about the hours you put in, but how you use those hours - I'll make sure you target the right areas in the right way. For example, did you know that the case interview is really a beahvioural interview and the beahvioural is really a case? If you want to understand better, book a session!

Both sides of the fence - I have been deeply involved in both interviewing and being interviewed. This lets me understand a) What they want and b) How you feel. When a and b meet, offers are made!

Coaching-Paket: Prepped and Primed

Beinhaltet 3 Sessions
  • 8 proprietary resources
  • Fail-safe preparation plan
  • Fundamental mindset shift

This package is designed to prime you for success in casing in the least amount of time possible. It is not about learning everything or being cased in x specific industry/case type. It is about me giving you everything you need to go-it-alone and succeed!

 

I fundamentally believe that we don’t go to school to learn x topic. Rather, we learn how to learn. Same with this package: I won’t teach you x case type, however I will teach you how to approach any unknown case type successfully.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Session 1 - Preparation plan

In this session, I work with you to identify your key weaknesses and areas for improvement. Not only will we then create a preparation plan for you, but I will also provide you with all the materials required to resolve these issues. *See below for the materials I provide*

If you have just started your consulting journey, this session might include:

  • Deep-dive resume review (incl. killer template)
  • Deep-dive cover letter review (incl. example Cover Letters)
  • Networking/recruiting plan (incl. recruiting tracker)
  • Casing resources (incl. case layout template, “world of frameworks” visualisation, industry deep-dive template w/ answers, case tracker/matrix)

If you are further along in your preparation, this session might include:

  • Casing resources (incl. case layout template, “world of frameworks” visualisation, industry deep-dive template w/ answers)
  • Initial case to gauge strengths/weaknesses, alongside concrete recommendations for focus areas

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Session 2: Mindset shift

In this session I’ll hone in the major areas blocking your success. I’ll have identified these in our first session and we’ll work to fundamentally change your mindset. I have almost never seen a candidate that did not need a mindset shift in at least one area. This will be a very focused session, where I use tried-and-tested methods to fundamentally shift your mindset!

Some of the most common areas include:

  • Driving/understanding the case with purpose (hypothesis-driven only scratches the surface here)
  • Fundamentally understanding how companies work
  • Structured + clear thinking and communication
  • Keeping context while in the weeds
  • Brainstorming / flexibility with the unknown
  • Being a real person – showing your personality
  • Logical, project-based thinking of any problem, no matter how big or how small

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Session 3 – Final touches 

In this final session, we do some combination of the following, based on your needs

  1. Revisit mindset shift exercises
  2. Tough case – I throw everything at you, and provide detailed feedback
  3. Behavioural discussion (how to craft your stories and key principles)
  4. Deep-dive on framework or industry of your choosing

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the end of these 3 sessions, you will have the fundamentals required to ace the case. You will have gotten rid of rejection-worthy bad habits and you will have the vision and focus required to ultimately achieve interview success.

 

You won’t be done, but you will not be blocked moving forward. Every hour you spend practicing/preparing after our course is done will progress you further than three hours would have done prior.

 

As a reminder, you will receive the following proprietary content from these sessions:

  • Killer resume template
  • Example killer Cover Letters
  • Recruiting tracker
  • Case tracker + industry/framework matrix (to ensure you cover all industries + case types)
  • Case layout template (how to optimally structure your paper to help you)
  • “World of frameworks” visualisation (single-view of the world of frameworks, showing how they are all interconnected and leverage components from each other)
  • Industry deep-dive template w/ answers (20 industries, broken down across the key areas you need to know)
  • Behavioural questions answer framework + tracker
