How you handle stress/challenge?

Well, I don't not had the following as my true answer.

I was a sales engineer in a start up company. And I had to cover all the channels in different cities (engineering offices, end clients etc..). The company was short in cash in period. And I still had to cover those visits cuz I wanted to contribute well on the company growth. So I had too sleep in the street and in my car for coupla months, until in successfully covered most of channels (for more than 180 leads)

Why you left you job?

I reached to a situration in the experience I could gain. And only little I would learn. So I decided to be leave

Is this something I could share with a senior consultant in one w if the big 4? Does it sound convincing?

Thanks a lot

Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

I think this experience is a good one (you slept in the streets? geeze!), but make sure you also address the actual question asked: How did you actually handle the stress/challenge? Be also ready to address some natural follow-ups, such as "What did you learn?" and "What would you do differently?"
