Contact me today to schedule a fit interview, mock case interview or to have me create a customized preparation program to help you significantly increase the chance of success. I have helped several people get offers from Bain, BCG, and McKinsey. I spent over three years screening and interviewing candidates at Bain & Company so I know exactly what your interviewer will be looking for.
--- WHY I AM BEST PLACED TO HELP YOU ---
I spent four years with Bain & Company as a consultant working in a wide variety of cases in Europe and the United States. I have conducted 75+ first and second round interviews while at Bain & Company and know exactly what your interviewer will be looking for and can tell you exactly how to stand out from the competition and get an offer. I really enjoy coaching people and giving back by helping aspiring consultants get into the industry.
I am happy to support you with my direct experience with the different firms/geographies/formats, including fresh graduates, experienced hires, and MBA hires.
---- THE VALUE I WILL PROVIDE IN OUR SESSIONS ----
My objective is to make sure you get an offer from your desired firm. Based on my extensive Bain experience will teach you exactly how to stand out from the competition, impress your interviewer, and avoid the mistakes that many candidates make. I will povide you with actionable feedback on how to improve and become a case interview rockstar!
(1) How to stand out from other candidates. While at Bain I have conducted 75+ actual case interviews and seen a wide variety of candidates with different backgrounds. Therefore I can provide you not only actionable feedback on your performance but I will also benchmark it against candidates that I have seen in live interviews. I can give you a good assessment of your chances of passing and the key areas you need to focus on. I will tell you the tips that will allow you to really impress your interviewer and stand out from the candidates you are competing against.
(2) Adjusted approach based on your target firm
I will teach you how to adjust your approach depending on the firm you are targeting both in terms of the behavioral part of the interview and the case study itself. The different firms have introduced new recruiting processes in recent years and I can help you tackle each in the best way. Through my network of consultant friends, I am well aware of how the different firms differ in approach.
(3) Tailored approach based on your background and needs. I will tailor our session depending on the level that you are at and which level you are looking to enter at (e.g. fresh graduate, experienced hire, MBA hire). We will agree before the session what you are looking to get out of it and adjust the contents of the session accordingly
(4) Working together will significantly increase your chance of success. It’s no secret - it takes a lot of practice to become very good. You might be already on the right track, but you might not have the luxury of time. We will see how to be efficient in your preparation by using the right resources, avoid the most common pitfalls and be focused on correcting the weak areas.
