Points to highlight to a senior partner over a coffee!

Anonymous A asked on Aug 13, 2019 - 1 answer

I have secured a meeting with a senior partner at a Big Four to discuss if I can join for consultancy positions as experienced hire. Theoretically he will be the person who would have ultimately interviewed me had I gone through all stages. Appreciate any tips on how to handle 20 minutes, what I need to aks for and what to expect at the end of this meeting.

Hi,

This is a great opportunity to get the know the company better and show your interest. In addition, after this chat, you may be able to:

  • Secure his reference which will almost guarantee an invite for the interviews
  • Leave a good impression, which will increase your chances when you reach the final round and interview with him

During the chat, you can ask questions around:

  • The typical profile of the projects
  • The current growth strategy of the office overall (or the sector of your alignment)
  • The culture of the office
  • What he likes about the office/company
  • Any advise he can give you for the recruiting process, or consulting overall
  • Any other people he may put you in contact with to better understand the points above

Best,

Deniz

Thank you Deniz for these helpful tips. — Shawn on Aug 13, 2019
