This is a key part of the interview! Please do not overlook it at all.

DO

Ask questions about one the below 3:

-consulting industry (how have clients need evolve?)
-case (did you wind up proposing this to the client? which were the roadblocks during the project?)
-himself (which step of the consulting career did you like best?)

AVOID

Ask stupid questions on:

-questions you can ask to HR (how long before I have an answer?)
-basic consuling career stuff (how often do you promote people?)

Hi,

This is a very important part of the interview. Interviewers typically ask this question during the last 5 minutes of the interviews. This is the moment where you can show that you have done your research, you can ask things around:

  • Office staffing structure - where do consultants typically work (office or client site, locally or internationally), do consultants have a say regarding staffing decisions (e.g., can they choose the type of topics to work on, client types, etc.)
  • What do the interviewers like the most about working in their office or practice. Ask them to provide an example of a project they worked on, people love to talk about their experiences!
  • Are there more strategy or implementation type of projects conducted in the office

As a last caveat, there are some awkward questions I was asked as an interviewer such as where do I see myself in 5 years or what are the things I don't like about the company, so try to avoid these questions.

Best,

Deniz

What is the workplace culture like? What was a challenge you faced as you started and how did you overcome it? Is there something you know now that you wish you would have known then?
