Preparing for consulting job interviews

Hi, I also have an upcoming interview at BCG. So I am interested to find a partner to practice cases! German or english is fine for me :)

I've got my McKinsey interviews coming up in 9 days (eek!) and I desperately need someone to practice cases with! Preferably in German since I'll be doing the assessment centre in Munich - first German interviews I've ever done, so I'm nervous about that.

But English is just fine, so drop me an inbox. I'm flexible with times!

Hi! I'm not sure if you will check this, but I'm also a native English speaker looking to apply to consulting firms here in Germany. If you have any insight or advice I'd love the chance to ask you a question or two! — Anonymous on Jun 08, 2018
