Hi,

It may help in the following situations:

  1. Coming up with smart questions for the Q&A part of the interview
  2. Giving the right industry knowledge if you are interviewing for a research / experts role.

For the generalist role I recommend reading the annual reports for investors by the top players in each industry (Retail, Banking, etc)

Best!

They can help you if you are reading them for a specific goal. Some of these goals could be:

  • Gain some understanding of industries you have no experience (e.g. read up on trends in industries like banking, pharma, logistics..).
  • Practice interpretation of graphs. Review the figures and pretend it is a case, which insights would you draw from these figures?
  • Practice your hypothesis forming, by reading the introduction of these articles and thinking of the problems & possible solutions
