WHO I AM

I am a BCG Project Leader with 5+ years of consulting experience, who has worked in the firm's Vienna, Melbourne and Singapore offices. During my time as with BCG I was part of the recruiting team and interviewed more than 150 candidates. 

Beyond my consulting day job, I am a passionate case coach and mentor who has successfully placed 30+ candidates with MBB and many more with other leading consulting firms (e.g. Kearney, Oliver Wyman, Strategy&, LEK and Roland Berger to name a few) in different regions. You can check my profile or message me for references.

As a seasoned recruiter who has been in your shoes a few years back, I know exactly what MBB firms look for and what it takes to master the rigorous recruiting process, step-by-step.

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

WHY ME

There are different reasons why I could be an ideal mentor for YOU:

  • First-hand experience: Over the years, I have interviewed more than 150 candidates for BCG and successfully coached dozens of candidates on how to break into consulting in my capacity as a case coach. Moreover, I interviewed with 6 consulting companies globally myself (including all MBB) and achieved a 100% offer rate. In short, I know exactly what MBB and other companies are looking for and what it takes to get in.
  • Personalized approach: We will spend some time before the session together, to better understand your objectives, background, application status, your key development areas, and strengths. We will agree on the the structure and approach of the sessions before we start to ensure they are fully tailored to your needs and our time together is well spent.
  • Real life case experience: We will work with cases I have created for and used in real-life MBB interviews, which are all based on actual projects I have worked on at BCG. Forget about invented MBA case books and generic standard frameworks… 
  • Network: Based on my global track record in consulting - I have done projects on 4 continents and was officially based in different 3 offices - I am very well connected with MBB, ATK and other consulting firms around the world. I am always willing to leverage my network to help my top mentees through the CV screening and provide them with real-life insights on what it is like to work at their office.
  • 90%+ success rate: I have a placement success rate (= offer received) beyond 90% with candidates who spent at least 3 sessions with me, 100% for candidates who did 5+ sessions. Over the years, I have placed more than 30 candidates with MBB firms and many more with other leading consulting companies. There are probably few people who have deeper insight into what it takes to land the job offer of your dreams. Please do reach out if you would like to check with some of my references.

MY APPROACH

Having interviewed 150+ real candidates for BCG and mentored 50+ candidates, I have fine-tuned my approach which will help maximize your chances to get a job offer from MBB. Whether you're just getting started, have some case experience or already perform on expert level, my approach will help you identify and improve your weaknesses and play on your strengths.

 

Think and act like a real consultant

During our sessions, we will learn how to think and act like a consultant. Cracking case interviews is about a clear, structured and replicable process much rather than about memorizing learning frameworks (that was 10 years ago..). In our session(s) we will focus on how you can tailor your case approach to the specific problem at hand and act like a top-performing entry level consultant. 

 

Nail all cases with a minimum number of frameworks

In the sessions we will learn how to apply a flexible approach that allows you to tackle the most common types of case studies by practicing the following:

  • Market sizing (for all types of for supply-side and demand-sided questions)
  • Profitability problems (incl. revenue growth, operational / cost excellence, turnaround cases)
  • Different business situations (e.g. product launch, market entry, competitive response, M&A, digital transformation etc)

If you are an advanced candidate, I will be more than happy to assess how you solve these types of cases and improve your thinking aligned with my recommended approach.

 

Show that you are a good fit to the company's culture

Many people neglect how important fit interviews are but first impressions are critical in a consulting interview. Conveying a mature and “consultant-ready” attitude and good personality fit with your firm of choice is a MUST HAVE for successful MBB candidates. 

In our sessions, I will give you the top tips on key questions you should be able to answer to convey that you have what it takes. To maximize your chances, I will make sure you get insights specific to the office you are applying to. For this, I will connect you to my network.
