Looking to practice TMT cases (primarily telecom)

Hello,

I am preparing for an interview with a ride-sharing company (like BlaBlaCar) and there will be a case on ride-sharing (or perhaps transportation in general).

Are you aware of any cases on ride-sharing? Or maybe some materials how to prepare for such a case?

I would appreciate enormously!

Cheers!

Hi Dan,

I've helped a few candidates interview for Uber, and have interviewed for Deliveroo and Doordash myself (not ride-sharing, but similar business models and cost/revenue structures).

More than happy to give you mocks to simulate this interview! Unfortunately, there isn't much written material on this. (Normally how I prepare candidates for niche topics like these is I create the case the day before and provide mostly verbal information + data. This is not unlike what you may experience during the interview day itself).

The closest existing case that I am aware of is Ice Cream Co in Columbia 2017 which is an Ice Cream store that uses ride sharing to deliver its ice cream.

For transport in general theres:

  • Airport Parking - Ross Casebook
  • Transportation Tech Co - Darden
  • PayCo - Columbia

Hey Dan,

feel free to reach out to me on anything related to mobility. I'm not aware of a case published here on preplounge that would fit your requirements perfectly, but I'm happy you help you prepare based on my experience.

There is a case from Deutsche Bahn on entering the long distance international bus market (it's in German, though).

Hope to hear from you, best regards

Torben
