Hi all,

I will soon have an interview with Charles River Associates in the Munich office for an internship position, and there should be a case during the one-hour interview.

Does anyone know if there is anything special for the case interview specially of this company?

Thanks for the help!

Best, FM

Hi there,

In general, you're better off focusing on the fundamentals of casing; prepare more for ALL scenarios (i.e. learn how to think and respond to anything) rather than what a given company / interviewer might ask! Trying to plan for a specific company / interviewer is like trying to boil the ocean!

That being said, just a random guess that you might want to be familiar with / practice cases on the below topics ;)

Charles River Associates Industries

Charles River Associates Services
