I have a case study with Deloitte on Wednesday 17th April for a job in M&A Operations (Operations Due Diligence, ODD, Synergies assessment, Carve out analysis).

The assessment is in-person online with the following format:

2 hours - review of the case information/excerpts, analysis and generation of hypothesis and discussion with interviewer

I am urgently looking for a coach that can assist me in preparation ahead of the interview. Is there anyone that can assist?

You will be tested on a written case. 

Basically, you'll be provided in advance with materials and then expected to do a presentation of your approach and answers. 

I work with candidates on this by sending them two cases in advance, they get to prepare the presentation, and during the session they get to present both of them, and I provide them with written and verbal feedback on content, structure and delivery, plus a step by step plan on how to close the gap to being interview ready. 

Drop me a line when you're ready to start.

If not, feel free to still reach out and I can share with you for free two cases with sample answers so you get to have some practice and be in a better shape for the interview.

Hi Cameron,

Q: I am urgently looking for a coach that can assist me in preparation ahead of the interview. 

To find a coach matching your needs, I would recommend the following:

  1. Go to the main page listing the coaches:
  2. Filter the coaches based on your criteria (eg budget, reviews)
  3. Read reviews/profiles – define a shortlist (eg 3-5 coaches)
  4. Send a message to the coaches with your questions and what you would like to work for the case study on to see if there is a match
  5. Select the coach that best suits your needs

For general tips for a written case, you can check the following:

For any questions please feel free to PM me.

Good luck!

I can help, and I believe other coaches here can help with that as well… you have to do a bit of search and “due diligence” on the coaches to find the right one.
