Hi there,

I'm happy to help you in your preparation. While there are a few different types of online cases, and we need to define which one it is (online test, written case, take-home case, etc) I've helped candidates with all of the above!

In regards to OC&C specifically, you may be hard pressed to find coaches who specifically specialize in OC&C interviews. However, the preparation across strategy companies that conduct fit+case style interviews is 95% the same!

You really don't have to worry too much about OC&C specifically as much as you may think. That being said, you will want to focus more on the areas the OC&C is known for (PE, M&A, CPG, TMT, Retail, etc)...any coach with sufficient time working in MBB would be comfortable with most any industry/service

Hi there!
Mostly case interviews are very similar in all companies so that you can choose any good expert and he will help you to prepare in an appropriate way, even if he doesn`t have any experience with OC&C.

Good luck!

Do you need any further help?

Hello!

Upfront: unfortunately I have never done them myself.

However, to be honest, I would not chooose a coach because of this reason.

Preparation and interviews themselves, particularly 1st round, are 90% similar across firms and geographies.

Pick whoever you think will help you most, or you have the better connection with.

Cheers!
