Experienced consultant in Tier 2 firm. Happy to help with cases from time to time, drop me a msg.

Hi everyone, just got an invite to Bain's one-way video interview and there doesn't seem to be much prior discussion / content on this - would anyone care to share their experience on this part of the process please?

Would be great to understand the focus of questions and hear any afterthoughts you have about the process.
