Hi, I have received the result that I have failed to get an offer from MBB today, and I am super down now...Would really appreciate hearing some honest and constructive feedback from you guys:
1.I have practised around 100 cases and interviewed with one firm (attended 3 case interviews). I am wondering is it because I am not smart and talented enough to crack the case interviews, or I might be preparing in the wrong way. In your experience, is a natural-born talent a prerequisite to succeed in the case interviews, or, if preparing hard enough and in the right way, there is a fairly high chance to succeed? I am not sure whether I should persist in this path now after failure...
2.Here's the feedbacks I got, would really appreciate to learn some preparation methods to strengthen the weakness points:
(1) Not enough drive. The interviewers had to give me hints.
(2) I performed okay, but there was not "shining points". And as I am applying for post-MBA level, they expected some shining points.
(3) The structure was general, and analysis is not deep enough.
(4) Not creative enough.
(5) There was one chart about 4 customer segmentations, and I was not able to propose a well-defined marketing strategy for each segment.
