Managing multiple final rounds within a short time-frame

Anonymous A

Dear PrepLounge community,

I have 4 final rounds coming up within a 6-day period (22-27/11): one round each weekday with a weekend break in the middle. Due to strict recruitment timelines there was not much flexibility in scheduling hence this relatively tight set-up. I have two questions:

  • Does anyone have advice regarding my preparation in between rounds?
  • Should I mention to companies that I am also passing final rounds with other firms at all? And if so, how should I communicate that?

For context,

  • Interviews are with 2 Tier 2s (e.g. AT Kearney, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Strategy&, OC&C etc) and 2 boutique firms in London.
  • I am aware of the high competition in the London market hence my decision to accept interviews with all firms. I would be happy to work for any of them, but I do have a ranking of preferences.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi,

  • Does anyone have advice regarding my preparation in between rounds? - try to relax between the rounds. Interviews themselves are very energy draining. Also, try to get some feedback. Further actions will depend on the feedback
  • Should I mention to companies that I am also passing final rounds with other firms at all? And if so, how should I communicate that? - NO. All your companies are Tier 2 companies and it will not give you any benefits.
