Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I only get 30 seconds to answer a question?

We cannot say it better than our coach Henning: Planning for 30 seconds as your initial statement is a good target when preparing for these questions. The interviewer might dig deeper and ask follow-up questions bringing up the total time spent on the question, but for practicing the first pitch this is a great tool.

What’s the best way to prepare for the personal fit interview?

Some people say, you cannot really prepare for the personal fit part, but you definitely can! Prepare your answers and their structure first by yourself and then with other case partners or coaches. Make sure that convey your personality, make you stand out and go into detail while staying structured.
