Hi there,

  1. The the exhibit will be shared through the screen. If you need to remember anything, you should write it down! You can always ask them to go back, but start practicing how to write down important information
  2. It will be local currency or USD. Just pay attention to whichever it is to not get mixed up!

Some other tips for virtual interviews

  • Make sure you have a strong internet connection
  • Make sure your sound+video work
  • Get multiple monitors so you can look at 3 things at once (1 screen makes thought linear which is tough),
  • Have a good desk space and keep using paper for solving the case,
  • Make sure you'll be in a quiet space with no distractions
  • Still dress for the occasion

Hey there,

1. Yes, the exhibit(s) can be seen via screenshare. They do not send them out as they would instantly start to circulate around.The exhibits are used for

  • chart interpretation --> for this purpose it will be on screenshare
  • for the case math question (not always) --> the interviewer will keep sharing it in that case

2. The currency can be USD or any other currency for that matter, depending on the context of the case. A common trick is to have different values in different currencies or units. Always make sure to listen carefully and convert all values to the same unit.

Cheers,

Florian

Hi there,

  1. Most likely they will do screen sharing. You can ask to see the graph again if needed
  2. Depends on the case, you can always clarify it if it is not clear from the graph

Best,

Francesco

Hi,

  • Exhibit is typically shared via zoom (using the share screen feature). If you need to see the exhibit again you can always request it and they will bring it up. Typically an exhibit will not be required for multiple questions.
  • The case will usually be in the local currency but USD etc is also possible. This should never be an issue as the math for both is the same

Best,

Udayan

Interviewer will screen share and you can request to see the section/graph etc again. No need to memorise anything.

Currency should never be an issue in your calculations. It can be USD or whatever currency.

1. Exhibits are typically shared via Zoom. I guess there's nothing stopping you from print screen

2. Currency depends where some cases will be used globally and take a common currencies like USD

Hi, I confirm exhibits are showed via zoom screen sharing. The currency used is USD or the local currency of the office you are applying for
