Hi everyone,

I am a life science PhD and have interviews with MBB. I am starting to prep for case interviews over the course of the next two month. I am looking for partners to do interviews with via skype or locally in Vienna in German or English.

If you are interested please let me know via j********@g****.com.

Best,

Hi Jan,

this is actually not the best section of PrepLounge to find a case partner.

By the way, especially for a profile like yours (PhD), I would suggest getting in touch with an expert (as I am) to tailor a customized preparation. Your peers won't be able to do so. Trust me. If the interviews turn to be successfull, the ROI is incredibly high.

Best of luck!
