Dear Jakob, I only received an email for a phone call with an engagement manager. Nothing else was mentioned.

Ok, still, at least review current topics in the industry, namely machine learning. Also, consultants like to use Python. There are simple code snippets you can Google for to implement (simple) machine learning tasks. Good luck!

Hi there,

As it is a phone interview, I would recommend you to be read more for behavioral questions!

You can specifically focus on your stories with data analysis.
