Hi folks, I passed the 1st round of Capgemini (telephone interview) in Germany and will take the 2nd round in 10 days. The staff from Capgemini told me that the 2nd round will last 1 hour and will be similarly structured as the telephone interview. Can anybody give me any details about the 2nd round of Capgemini? Which case format (candidate-led?) will be used there? What typical case types will be asked if I applied for the corporate excellence & transformation? Which professional questions might be posed? Any comments or tips are highly appreciated! Thanks a lot!

Congrats for moving to final round!

As it has been outlined, its very similar, but :

  • Cases you can expect are more "free riding" - less organized than the ones your found in the 1st round or most prep pages
  • Stronger emphasis in the FIT part, as outlined before by other coaches.

If you are interested in deepening your knowledge and preparation on the FIT part, the "Integrated FIT guide for MBB" has been recently published in PrepLounge´s shop (

It provides an end-to-end preparation for all three MBB interviews, tackling each firms particularities and combining key concepts review and a hands-on methodology. Following the book, the candidate will prepare his/her stories by practicing with over 50 real questions and leveraging special frameworks and worksheets that guide step-by-step, developed by the author and her experience as a Master in Management professor and coach. Finally, as further guidance, the guide encompasses over 20 examples from real candidates.

Furthermore, you can find 3 free cases in the PrepL case regarding FIT preparation:

- Intro and CV questions >

- Motivational questions >

- Behavioural questions (ENTREPRENEURIAL DRIVE) >

Feel free to PM me for disccount codes for the Integrated FIT Guide, since we still have some left from the launch!

- for the inventory (saving time - you dont have to count every item)

- Also for check-out (supermarket trolley can be scanned at once - cashier does not have to scan eevry item and company can save money for equipment at check-out)

In my case: how can a retailer implement RFID?

Personal part: why did you do an internship at ...? What is your role in a team?
