The package shown here includes 5 sessions, each of them 2h long (1h case + 1h fit).
This is however just an initial proposal as every candidate is different and has different needs so it’s impossible to develop a one-size-fits-all package.
That’s why the package for you will be tailored exactly to you needs: what companies do you target, where are you right now in the preparation process and what are your current weakest points. The goal will be to make you a fully prepared candidate in 2-3 weeks.
Here’s suggested format for a beginner-level coachee:
1st session - during the 1st hour we’ll perform diagnostic of your case solving skills. You will get a long case* that touches upon several important areas(profits, market entry, challenging math). No time limit, so you can fully focus on solving the case in the best way you can. The goal here is for me to understand exactly what are you weak and strong points, so I can design for you the most efficient way forward.
* one of the cases that I have already given to 50+ other candidates at the beginner level in order to compare your performance to a large batch of candidates with similar level of experience
During the 2nd hour we’ll in turn perform diagnostic of your ability to answer various fit interview questions. I’ll ask you questions favored by companies that you target (for example McKinsey’s PEI) as well as some less common questions asked by partners during final rounds that are known to give a lot of troubles to interviewees(the purpose of those is to show you in full what you can expect during fit part).
2nd-5th session - based on your current level of preparedness those sessions can have a mock interview format where we’ll simulate fit and case* exactly as it’s going to happen during real interviews or they can have more of a coaching session format with more of a discussion about best/worst practices. No matter the chosen format you’ll get cases and fit questions that will specifically target weakest points identified. After each session we will discuss your progress and how do you feel about it in order to develop the best way forward for you. Each of those sessions will last at least 2 hours**.
*If for example you’ll be much better answering fit questions than solving cases then we could customize sessions to focus more on cases than fit
**If for some reasons you are unable to find 2h time slots in your schedule it could be possible to break our sessions into 1h each. Even in this setting our sessions won’t have any time-constrain from my side. Each one will last as long as you will have questions to ask
On top of that:
In addition I will share with you 70+ casebooks, numerical tests and PST materials that will help you practice on your own and hone your case and math solving skills.
I have a library of hundreds of real life cases that have been given to candidates at top consultancies.
I will remain at your disposal even after the completion of all 6 sessions so you’ll be able to reach out to me whenever some additional questions will come to your mind later.
Our sessions could also include:
- Coaching on how to network with current consultants in order to secure referrals
- Review of your resume and cover letter with guidance on how you improve your documents(if needed after every session)
- Stress tests - assessment of how you perform when an interviewer is unfriendly or even hostile
- Behind the scenes - discussion on how interviewers decide who to invite to the next rounds/give an offer
- Consulting lifestyle - discussion on how it is to be a consultant
Let me know if you have any additional questions regarding that package!
