Hello friends! I have an upcoming interview at Capgemini for the role of a Business Consultant in their IT graduate programme. From what I understand, it is a paper-driven case where I am allowed to use my laptop to research. I have 1 hr preparation time, and another 1 hr presentation time. Does anyone have a guide on such case interviews? Most of the case interview structures I've read (especially from books) are more focused on Interviewer-led cases.
Any experience with Paper-driven IT Cases?
I really hope that by now Victor went through the process! But I think that the answer given will help other people going forward. As an additional help you can look here:
The basic steps are the following:
- You collect the information quickly (make sure you've bookmarked the valid statistical information sires)
- You make a structure. The classical structure is:
- 1st slide: context, objectives
- 2nd slide: key recommendations
- 3-x slides: Arguments with supporting analysis
- Final slide: next steps / roadmap, etc
Here I've uploaded some written case samples that may help
I also found useful the following sources:
- Written cases you'll be able to find in google or in case books. I've seen a couple in "Vault Guide to the Case Interview" and "Insead Business Admission Test"
- Harvard cases - either buy or try to find online. You can find a couple of MIT cases here for free: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/Pages/Case-Studies.aspx Unfortunately free cases don't have the prep questions.
