Hi everyone! I'm curious what the interview structure is for RB US - I heard there are written cases but I'm not sure how to go about preparing for them. If anyone knows any questions that they ask/any tips on the cases I would really appreciate it!

Hello!

Can you specify which role and seniority, so we can help you better?

Written case interviews are indeed becoming very fashionable nowadays as a way to interview!

Remember that the skillset tested is the same than in the "usual" cases, hence, all the practice you may have done totally plays in your favor. 

One important point to add is the need to be very 80-20, structured and to the point, since the prep time is very short, so we need discipline with the analysis to have enaugh time to prep the communication strategy. 

There are many many entries in thsi same Q&A regarding written cases, hence, I would recommend you to look with the keywords "written case"

Hope it helps!

Cheers, 

Clara

Hi there,

If it's anything like non-US RB offices you might expect the following for 1st round (all interviews with consultants of different seniority):

  • 2x case interviews (60min each) 
  • 1x fit interview (60min) 

However, don't take my word for it because I don't have US-specific knowledge!

As others suggest, best to be prepared for anything!

Best of luck!
