    Most recent answer on Dec 01, 2020
    <p>Hi everyone, </p> <p>I have a first-round McKinsey interview for London coming up for the business analyst position. Due to family reasons, I have not been able to prepare well. Will it look bad on my overall application if I ask to postpone my interview? Does anyone know if I would have to wait a year to do my interview or is there an off-cycle hire that they can fit me into? Will I risk losing the opportunity to be selected? </p> <p>Thank you in advance</p>

    Virtual First Round Interview Thoughts & Advice

    BCG firstround
    Most recent answer on Aug 15, 2020
    <p>Hi, </p> <p>I have a first round interview coming up with a BCG office and as I live far from there, they suggested that we do a virtual first round interview. I haven't been able to find a lot of information on virtual interivews. If anyone has any experience or advice in that front, please let me know. How should my case prep change now that I am aware of that fact? For instance, in a virtual interivew, how do you show the interviewer your structure/things you are writing on paper etc. </p> <p>I would appreciate any guidance. </p> <p>Best, </p>
