I'm considering booking sessions for case prep and was wondering if a coaching service is worth the investment. I figure if it's very helpful, it might be worth the money now if I can get the offer later. Specifically, I was looking at caseinterview and mangement consulted. Anyone worked with either of them before and have any thoughts on what the process was like and whether it was worth it? Thanks!

Hi there,

thanks for asking your question on our Consulting Q&A!

To answer your first question:

Yes, case coaching is indeed very helpful and will definitely be worth your investment

If you fail your case interview, you will have to wait 1-2 years to be able to reapply for the position. So you shouldn't take any chances when it comes to your case prep! Experienced coaches usually know exactly what interviewers want and can turn you into the perfect candidate. Plus, after having landed the job, the amount you have spent on the coaching sessions won't seem like much to you anymore ;) 

To answer your second question on the various platforms:

Obviously, we believe that PrepLounge is the best choice for you. Let me explain why...

On PrepLounge, you have a transparent list of all experts. They have many years of experience at top consulting firms and have already helped thousands of candidates land their dream job offer. All expert profiles include:

  • Professional and educational background
  • Top Skills
  • Infos on their individual coaching approach
  • Number of conducted coachings
  • Reviews & recommendation rate
  • Price per session

This allows you to individually choose the perfect experts for your coaching sessions. For example, you can get insights from an expert who has worked at the exact same company you are applying to. Neither managementconsulted nor caseinterview offer transparency like we do

You can individually book the sessions directly with each expert or take advantage from our Prep4Success coaching package. This is a bundle of 3, 5 or 10 coaching sessions that gives you an overall discount and includes additional benefits like a one-year premium membership, an individually tailored training plan, a McKinsey Practice PST and all the prep material you need. 

If you have any further question, don't hesitate to contact us.

Hope this helps and best of luck for your case prep and upcoming case interviews!
