I’ve been invited to a BCG workshop prior to a first round interview (which is scheduled). Would you advice me to go?

Hi Anonymous,

so far that there are no time conflicts (the question is not 100% clear on that), you should definitely go. It’s a nice opportunity to know more about BCG, improve your preparation and network with people in the company (it’s always good to have internal contacts in MBB, even if you already have the interview scheduled - you never know when they could become useful).

Best,

Francesco

Hi,

I don't see any reasons why not.

You'll get a chance to:

  • Look how BCG approaches solving a case
  • Talk to BCG people and get some information for you FIT interview (why BCG reasons, topics for your questions to the interviewer, etc)
  • Meet with other candidates with whom you can practice the cases further

Best!

Hey,

I'm not sure I understood correctly, but assuming you're referring to having a potential workshop for BCG prep ahead of your actual BCG 1st round, that's definitely a Go!

(btw, if the interpretation is having a BCG workshop just before (if so, what's the time interval?) another company first round interview, than it would depend on the time interval and on how much do you value the other company)

Best

Absolutely, not only is a great opportunity to learn more about case interviews but also an occasion to get your name known across the office. That sometimes helps in event of first round borderline cases when people who interacted with you can take a small leap of faith and vouch for you being a good candidate because they assume you just had a "no" day.

Hope it helps,

Andrea
