Sessions I offer

***Please book at least 2 days in advance***(away from 17th Sep till 1st Nov, during which no coaching session is available)

- PEI/Behavioral interview coaching 

1 hour session, including:

1). Diagnosis on your prewritten PEI stories (up to 6 stories)

2). Step by step rewrite on how to tell a good PEI story based on 6 steps of good storytelling

- Case cracking skill diagnosis

1 hour session, include:

1). One diagnostic mock case interview

2). Step by step guide on how to do a case with the most effective and efficient method

2). Feedback on performance and areas of improvement

- Individualized case coaching (for candidates who have completed a diagnostic session with me)

1 hour session, focusing on your personal areas of improvement. Common areas that most candidates struggle are:

- How to structure not only in the beginning, but also with brainstorming, graph-reading and even math? 

- How to do “hypothesis driven” right?

- How to cope with that terrifying “what else”?

- How to deal with “brain freeze”? 

….and others.

- Individualized fix

This session is only for those who have a specific area of struggle which you‘re aware of, but find it difficult to resolve. Please send me a message describing your struggle so we can figure out a coaching plan together.

My approach is more about teaching you the principles and skills that can work for different cases, instead of how to solve 1 single super difficult cases. Many aspects of case cracking can be improved largely with the right method and in a short period of time. I believe if you're qualified enough to receive interview invites with MBB, you should be able to get the final offer!

For all my sessions, I offer the “No Questions Left” guarantee - i.e. I will not stop the session until all your questions are answered.

Let's get you that congratulations email!

Erica's Coaching Package
Quick Diagnostic Combo
Includes 3 sessions
Case skill diagnosis in detail
PEI stories diagnosis
Individualized fix

This package includes three coaching sessions. They are most suitable for candidates who:

1). Have already practiced at least 15 cases with basic understanding on the common cases types

2). Have at least 2 weeks until the interview

3). Interviewing with McKinsey

Detailed breakdown of content for each session:

1st coaching - step by step diagnosis on case skills

In this session I will diagnose your case skill with a full mock case interview, with difficulty of a MBB 1st round case, which should be finished within 20-25 min. I will do a step by step review afterward to identify any area of improvements you may have. 

After this session, you will have a very good idea on what good performance is like and how can you get there.

2nd coaching - PEI stories diagnosis

In this session you will tell me a brief version of all your pre-written PEI stories and I will help you diagnose whether each of them is a good story to tell for each of the specific dimension. I will also use 1-2 stories as example to demonstrate how to tell PEI stories in the most effective and efficient way.

After this session, you will know how should you improve and tell your PEI stories. You will be able to finalize all stories on your own. For most McKinsey candidates, this is the only PEI session you will need.

3rd coaching - Addressing key areas of improvement

After the case and PEI diagnosis sessions, you will have good idea on what good performance is like but many candidates still find struggles on 1-2 areas on achieving that “case master status”. This session provides highly individualized drill training on your areas of struggle. 

After this session, you should be able to get rid of any hindrance between you and the offer. To ensure your success, this session should not be taken in less than 1 week from your interview, as you will need some time and practice to fix whatever issues you may have.   
 

I offer 50% off on additional single coaching sessions for candidates who purchase this combo.
