Hello PreLounge-Community,

does any of you have experience with Deloitte's interview process in Zurich?

I will soon have a second interview (case interview) for the Risk Advisory department and I would be happy if you would share your experiences with me on the following topics:
- Experience with zoom
- Experience regarding case style / topics
- Preparation recommendation

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Two main things here:

  • Experience & prep for zoom meetings:
    • In terms of content, it is the same as in-person interviews, since the skillset that interviewers are looking for is exactly the same
    • What changes is only the format, with minor details and ensure looking at the camera constantly, having a professional background in the image, etc. Minor details as in the in-person interview there were too (e.g., clothing, way to sit down, etc.)
  • Experience with Deloitte (Financial Risk in particular):
    • Altought I don´t have experience with DRA in particular, most likely will have the classical:
      • FIT part -for sure!-
      • Business case, that won´t be different than the ones used for MBB -indeed, it can be the very same-.

Hope it helps!

Hi there,

In terms of what to expect versus strategy consulting interviews

You will still get a prompt, you will still need to read/interpret charts, you will still need to be hypothesis driven, create a solid framework, drive the case, communicate clearly, think in a structured manner, etc. etc.

Make sure you understand the major Financial Risk/Advisory themes and work through cases on these topics.

In terms of what to prepare for with a virtual interview

  • Make sure you have a strong internet connection
  • Make sure your sound+video work
  • Get multiple monitors so you can look at 3 things at once (1 screen makes thought linear which is tough),
  • Have a good desk space and keep using paper for solving the case,
  • Make sure you'll be in a quiet space with no distractions
  • Still dress for the occasion
