I was an interviewer and I know the things we look at. I would be happy to help you take a crack at a real interview.
I want to share my approach, which helps you to prepare in 2-3 weeks based on your avaialble time I create a personal approach to every candidate. It not only consists of a case interview, but covers fit-part as well. Both parts are essential to get a desired offer.
I am looking forward to comitted and passionate students or professionals. My sessions are are not time-constrained. Welcome on board!
