FIT, a Key Dimension From Any Consulting Interview
MBB, boutiques, and overall consulting interviews usually consist of 3 parts: FIT, business case, and Q&A, organized in 2 rounds.
Although many candidates underestimate FIT and focus their preparation on business cases, FIT is as important to be prepared, and a usual cause for rejection.
FIT in MBB interviews is an in-depth assessment of your skillset, not a standard motivational interview. In fact, it´s not conducted by HR, but for the consultants themselves, usually before the business case.
In fact, FIT is not a complement to the business case, but a highly relevant part of the interview by itself. The reason why it´s deeply rooted in the value proposition a consultant brings to the table for his/her clients. The consultant skillset is not limited to analytical and problem-solving skills, but also encompasses team and client management abilities. This last two cannot be tested through business case, hence the importance of FIT.
