Hi everyone!

I have an interview at EY. Due to online case interview the material required for the analysis will be provided 48 hours before. I have to develop a presentation for the interview with all the analysis and present it to the interviewer (mostly Manager) in 5 minutes. Total interview will be mix of case study + behavioural, so might be of total 60 min.

I would appreciate your help and suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

First, good luck!

This is very much a written case.

I recommend the following:

  1. Remember that most casing tips apply here (i.e. be very clear+focused on the objective, ruthlessly cut out information that doesn't help you meet this objective/question, make sure to thinking + communicate in a structured way, etc. etc.)
  2. Practice/simulate this as much as possible beforehand...getting a coach to help you run through scenarios + how to react in inevitably challenging moments will do a world of good.

I have a number of written case I'd be more than happy to share with you! What I generally do with my candidates is, give them a written case x hours before our scheduled session (adjust # of hours based on the specific interview they're going to have), and then review their work during the session (as well as talk through tips+tricks to get better).
