Hi,

It really depends on who you are interviewing with:

  • If you are interviewing with ex MBB (and Parthenon has many of them) - your interview will be very MBB-like
  • If you are interviewing with ex Big4, etc - the interview will not be structured that well. Interviewers will be less demanding and you will have very standard cases

Finally, regardless of who is the interviewer, you should prepare the fit part:

  • Tell me about yourself
  • Why consulting
  • Why Company
  • Stories (not that structured but I would prepare a standard package of stories like leadership, resolving a conflict, achievement, strengths & weaknesses, etc)
  • Your questions to the interviewer

Best

It depends on the interviewer's style. The most common cases are usually - in order - market sizings, profitability, investment and market entry.

Best,
