Does interviewing with a partner on this website to assess where I am cost money? Is there a fee? I just want to find out before I reach out to my busy consultant friends at my target companies. I have done so many cases so far. I feel that at this point, I am helping so many people on this website by giving cases and sharing my feedback, but I am not getting the same quality of benefits from my case partners.
I already practiced enough cases and recently learned about this website. I recently exchanged cases with several partners whom I found on this PrepLounge website, and I have had some various partners. I have met partners
who claim to be a good case giver but tells me that the individual has not done many cases? ( In general, I'd like to think that the quality of case-giving is proportional to the quality of case-solving )
one who cancels at the last minute
one who books a sessioin with me and just forgets about it with no response whatsoever
one who gives me a case but is a horrible case giver (can't clearly present information or doesn't know how to leade the interviewer while approriately controlling the amount of information to share with interviewees)
one who is late for the session and demands that the individual stops giving me a case before I finish so that s/he can receive a case from me and stops giving before s/he finishes. What is the point of practicing a case if one doesn't get a chance to finsih the case?
On the other hand, I also met with case partners who were very well prepared, cordial and helpful, reaching out to be ahead of time and preparing for our scheduled session. In the end, they made me to want to work with them as my colleagues at whatever consulting companies we were going for.
I also would like to add that I am glad to have found this website, and this website was worth when I found good case partners. I'd like to find more of these respectful people without costing my time and energy for multiple cancellations, no shows and rude case giving.
