Dear all,

I am in the process for a job position at Deloitte Digital Luxembourg for digital transformation consultant.

I had my first round interview last wednesday:

- 1st hour with HR : 100% FIT interview - went very well

- 2nd hour with senior consultant : technical questions + 45min case (typical case profitability framework) - could answer perfectly all the technical questions but didn't performed well the case.

Despite the fact that I dindn't perform really well the case, things are going very fast and I will have on wednesday (May 15th) a 2 hours partner interview with 2 seniors managers from Deloitte Digital.

I would like to know how will it go, what kind of questions will I have and if I will have a case, if so will it be a case like I had during the first round interview?

Many thanks in advance,

Marie

Hi Marie,

first, congratulations on getting through to the Partner round!

While I don't know Deloitte Luxembourg, usually the following holds true:

  • When you made it to the final Partner round, you have almost always solved multiple cases, which went satisfyingly well. Hence, partners are more interested in things like your fit into the firm, your motivation , i.e. "soft factors". Now, I understand that you only solved one single case prior to the partner round. In this case, I would assume that you will be required to solve at least one other case.
  • Partners like to give cases that they have recently worked on, so they tend to be a bit more high-level/strategic since partners are oftentimes not as involved in the details as consultants on the ground - depending on the individual partner of course.

Hope that helps.

Best regards

Hello!

Congrats for moving to final round!

As it has been outlined, its very similar, but :

  • Cases you can expect are more "free riding" - less organized than the ones your found in the 1st round or most prep pages
  • Stronger emphasis in the FIT part, as outlined before by other coaches.

If you are interested in deepening your knowledge and preparation on the FIT part, 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:

- Intro and CV questions > https://www.preplounge.com/en/management-consulting-cases/fit-interview/intermediate/introduction-and-cv-questions-fit-interview-preparation-200

- Motivational questions > https://www.preplounge.com/en/management-consulting-cases/fit-interview/intermediate/motivational-questions-fit-interview-preparation-201

- Behavioural questions (ENTREPRENEURIAL DRIVE) >https://www.preplounge.com/en/management-consulting-cases/fit-interview/intermediate/behavioral-questions-entrepreneurial-drive-fit-interview-preparation-211

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

Dear A,

Congratulations to make it to the final round.

I would recommend you to be even better prepared for the FIT part, because partners will assess you motivation and valueintegratio to the company.

As for the case, of course it will be at more difficult level.

I would like to share with you the case https://www.preplounge.com/en/management-consulting-cases/candidate-led-usual-style/advanced/deep-water-rescue-206

This type of cases were very common in my practice, when I have been interviewing the candidates

If you need any further help or advice, feel free to reach out.

Best,
André
