WHO I AM?

My name is Serhat. I am a BCG consultant with 5+ years of consulting experience. I have worked in 30+ projects at 4 different continents and ~10 different countries. During my time at BCG, I was a member of BCG Recruiting Team. Currently, I am doing my MBA at Kellogg. I am 1Y Representative for Kellogg Consulting Club and mentoring Kellogg MBA students to succeed in consulting interviews. After my MBA, I will continue my career at BCG in the US. Until today, I mentored 350+ candidates  – many of them got multiple offers from top consulting companies.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHY SERHAT?

Top 10 main reasons to work with me

  • Best Results: 82% of people worked with me moved to the next round or got an offer. Message me for real references. 
  • Deep Knowledge of Consulting Companies: As a 1Y Class Representative for Kellogg Consulting Club, I worked with recruiting teams of MBB and other top companies very closely (incl. coffee chats, case workshops, networking events etc.) Therefore, I know what each of them is specifically looking for very well.
  • Tailored approach: There is no one size fits all solution when it comes to consulting interview. I will adjust your mock interview based on YOUR specific needs. You may need to focus more on conceptual, quant, communication, or unusual structures...
  • Holistic Approach: Your interview will not be simply 15 min fit + 45 min case. Your entire interview will be input for your fit assessment which is ignored by most of the candidates. As a result, many candidates who are best-in-class in case solving are failing due to poor communication. Therefore, I will also teach you how to communicate effectively.
  • I teach consultant way of thinking: My focus is not teaching you a bunch of frameworks and how to apply those in different situations. This is not what we do for our clients during real consulting projects. Instead, I will teach you how to think like a consultant. Otherwise, it is not possible to perform consistently well for 4+ consecutive interviews by simply applying common frameworks well known also by interviewers.
  • Comprehensive and direct feedback: Many of my clients tell me that they hear very valuable feedback which they even never thought about it before. I will let you know your improvement areas in all critical dimensions by leveraging my own assessment framework which I have built based on a combination of top consulting companies real interview assessment frameworks. You may think my style is sometimes very direct, but my target is not to make you feel good but to make sure you get your offer. Therefore, you will hear whatever you need to hear.
  • Successful Consultant: Beyond working at one of the TOP3 consulting companies, I am the one who performed very well and as a result promoted to consultant level.
  • Large network: Worked in 4 different continents and ~10 different countries, I have special access to a lot of top-class consultants from all around the world.
  • Up-to-date: As a current consultant, I provide you feedback based on the latest trends in the industry.
  • Guaranteed Service: Our session will not have a sharp one-hour time limit. It ends whenever we both believe that we created the highest level of value for YOU. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MY PHILOSOPHY

Preparing for a consulting interview is not so difficult, but it is difficult to keep things simple. I will teach you how to keep it simple which does not mean that you do not need to study a lot. At the end of our session, I do not want you to be dependent on me, but I want you to have a clear understanding of YOUR improvement areas and actionable roadmap to target them. This is something any good consultant would do for her client.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MY APPROACH

Our session will be 100% tailored for YOU. Therefore, we will start with a discussion on:

  • Your background
  • Companies you are applying
  • Your preparation history
  • Your self-assessment

Then I will design a custom interview based on your needs. Our session will include 3 steps:

  • Initial discussion – understanding your needs 
  • Full mock interview 
  • Comprehensive feedback, a roadmap for your next steps, and Q&A 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
