I keep recieving conflicting messages from recruiters and fellow candidates on the way I structure my approaches.
Some state that you should go at least 3 levels, and know exactly and specifically what you are asking for. But on the other hand, in case those specific points were irrelevant, you'll lose the case !
Others state that you want to have high level buckets, and make it more of a natural discussion to reach to your questions about specific data points. Personally, I'm not sure if this sounds appealing to any recruiter.
Also, another point is how many buckets you might look into analyzing. Ideally, how many buckets should we have ? Because technically you can have 4-5 MECE buckets that ARE relevant to the case. Yet, the level of relevance varies. So should one include them all for safety ? or should someone only focus on the extremely relevant buckets.
How would you advise on finding the sweet spot between general vs detailed info, and whether to include multiple buckets, or stick to a max of 3 ?
