Focusing on what's really important
Top consulting firms differ in their interview style and format - and these are evolving as firms are constantly looking for the most efficient and effective way to identify the best talent. But at the heart of it, top consulting firms are looking for the same core skills and traits that best talents demonstrate. What are these core skills and traits, and how do you show firms that you can demonstrate them?
I focus on going back to fundamentals - similar to what consultants do, I break down the interview process and go to the root of what is being tested and why - and then focus on helping you improve and master them. Mastering core skills means you can tackle any format or any style, even if you are not expecting it.
Learn from a top interviewer and top performer
I have 8+ years of consulting experience, which includes ~5 years of interviewing experience at BCG. I have interviewed and assessed candidates from varying levels all the way from interns to post-MBA consultant roles. I was also fast promoted at Kearney (BA to SBA) and twice at BCG (from Consultant to Project Leader, and Project Leader to Principal).
At BCG, I was also part of the CEO Ambassador program, having been selected and shortlisted as the top 2% of applicants globally, to support BCG's executive committee on key strategic topics for 6 months
Graduating with a B.A. in History, I understand the challenges and hurdles that non-traditional candidates (specifically in the arts/social sciences) face. I will share practical tips and advice that helped me and others I have coached before

Especially for lateral hire Manager/Project Leader roles - I am able to give a perspective that few others can give, having gone through the role and having a deep understanding of the expectations of case leadership
