I have got an interview scheduled next week for the Executive (IT), Transaction Strategy & Execution (TSE) position at EY Parthenon.

The first round structure is CV-led, my past experiences, interest in TSE, and general competency-based questions. Could you guys please help with what kind of general competency questions can I expect and what's the best way to answer them?

Thanks in advance

So it´s going to be mostly a FIT interview, which if very common.

If you want to deep dive on the topic, the "Integrated FIT guide for MBB" has been recently published in PrepLounge´s shop (https://www.preplounge.com/en/shop/tests-2/integrated-fit-guide-for-mbb-34)

It provides an end-to-end preparation for all three MBB interviews, tackling each firms particularities and combining key concepts review and a hands-on methodology. Following the book, the candidate will prepare his/her stories by practicing with over 50 real questions and leveraging special frameworks and worksheets that guide step-by-step, developed by the author and her experience as a Master in Management professor and coach. Finally, as further guidance, the guide encompasses over 20 examples from real candidates.

Furthermore, you can find 3 free cases in the PrepL case regarding FIT preparation:

Feel free to PM me for disccount codes for the Integrated FIT Guide, since we still have some left from the launch!
