Absolutely new to the consulting world and only found out about case interviews a month ago. I have been studying but don't have much time because of my current job. (Which I really want to get out of asap)
I am looking to change jobs within the next 3 months, and know I have very low chances for MBB but still want to apply / give it a go anyway to see the process, tests and case interviews. Is this a bad idea? I don't plan to apply within the next 2-3 years.
How much will this effect my second try? For example, if I completely bomb the imbellus test.
My plan is to get into a lower tier consulting firm, probably one without case interviews, and gain experience through that, while hopefully brushing up my case interview skills in the next few years and trying again. Or, would it be a better idea to just hold off completely?
This is for the digital/tech consulting positions by the way.
