What is a mock interview?
In a mock interview, two candidates practice and simulate a consulting case interview online via video or audio call. In the first round, one case partner will take the role of the interviewer, whereas the other one will take the role of the candidate. A case usually takes 45 minutes and then roles are switched. A back-to-back meeting, therefore, lasts about 90 minutes. After the interview, candidates should give each other feedback, as this will help them learn and improve their performance.
How many cases can I practice as a Basic or Premium Member?
As a Basic Member, you can conduct six mock interviews in total (three back-to-back meetings which means that you will be the interviewer and interviewee three times each). With a Premium Membership, you can practice as many cases as you want in our interactive meeting room. Our experts recommend that you should solve at least 30 full cases with an experienced case partner in order to be ready for your real interview.
How quickly can I start practicing with other candidates?
You can start practicing right away and should be able to conduct your first meeting within a few hours, but sometimes even sooner. On average, you will find about 50 meeting proposals per day on our Meeting Board.
Which Premium Membership duration do you recommend?
The most popular option for a Premium Membership is 6 weeks. If you are able to dedicate time to your practice on a daily basis, this is the best option for you and should be sufficient for your practice. If you don't have the opportunity to practice daily but have a longer period of time available for your preparation, the 20-week membership should be the better choice for you. The one-week membership should only be an extension, as one week is rarely enough for your preparation.
Can I cancel my Premium Membership?
You will not have to cancel your Premium Membership because you will pay in advance for a specific time period (1, 6, or 20 weeks) and there is no subscription trap or automatic extension. Of course, you can still delete your account anytime you want via your account settings. However, you will not receive a refund of your membership fees if you decide to do so.
