Silly question

Anonymous A

Dear XYZ,

I am a part of the recruiting team at (one of the MBB). I understand that you are interested to explore a career opportunity with us.

To help us understand your background better, we would like to have a brief chat with you. Let us know what time works best for you this week and we can speak at a convenient slot.

Look forward to talking to you soon.

Above is the email I received yesterday. I have few questions regarding this
1) Will this phone call be evaluative in any sense? Will they ask FIT questions?
2) How quickly the entire process of recruitment takes. Should I delay the phone call in order to get some time to prepare for cases and FIT questions?

Hi,

It will help if you provide the name of the company.

In general, it is a 20-30 min call with:

  • Story about yourself
  • Why consulting, Why company X
  • Additional fit questions (PEI stories, failure, strengths&weaknesses, etc). Usually with no additional questions so it's much easier than on a real interview
  • Your questions to HR

Good luck,

Vlad
