I have been casing on and off but so far I am able to give good insights on charts, good at brainstorming and framework.
However, my major challenge is the analytics part. Majorly in setting up equations to arrive on an answer. I able to hit the math perfectly if guided . Also, I lack case leadership and sometimes freeze when an interviewer puts figures infront me and ask me determine the calculations I will do.
i am at a target school and we are recruiting. Round 1 interviews are here and i do not have much time. I have 2 weeks to get R1 ready.
i have been doing alot of math (fractions, decimals and percentages). I don’t know if I am really doing the right thing at this time and I need a remedial plan to pass R1 interviews.
I have access to case coach but i have been focused on casing and mental math for now.
where do I focus my energy on to get maximum result in 2 weeks
Thank you for the detailed response. Let me drill down on the specifics; 1. I don't ask the right questions, almost shooting aimlessly and hoping for the best. Asking the right questions is critical, which I am trying to build on. 2. When given a lot of data in front of me, I often get overwhelmed and would have to be guided to get to the answer 3. For case leadership, there is usually an awkward silence. For example, when I have done the framework, I don't know which bucket to look into as the next steps These are the challenges I need to fix. At this point, I want to be R1 ready to build the skills I need to ace the interview. I would appreciate any tips and guidance
Hi there, a few quick tips: (1). You can choose to ask questions after you took time in this case, so that you have time to think about good questions to ask. (2). I would recommend the same tips for graph analysis in this case, you can find them here: https://www.preplounge.com/en/consulting-forum/how-to-communicate-during-an-exhibit-question-15321. (3). You should ask questions related to the next step in your structure, if the structure is good, that should be relatively easy. The issue might be due to a not optimal structure but it is difficult to comment without more information. Hope this helps
