Hello everybody,

I am going to apply in the month of September and currently preparing for case and fit interview.

Does anybody has gone through the recruitment process at MBB or tier-2 firms recently as I was wondering how companies are conducting case interviews online.

Hi there,

The process is exactly the same! In fact, even before covid, it wasn't uncommon for interviews to be conducted virtually.

Please remember a few important things:

1) Make sure you have a good + working headset

2) Make sure your camera works

3) Setup a space without distracting items/activity behind you

4) Make sure you have a good internet connection AND be prepared to hotspot with your phone

5) Test the videoconferencing platform/tool a day before (to make sure it's installed, compatible, etc.)

6) Login 10 minutes before to prevent any issues

Good luck!
