I am a 3rd-year undergraduate college student here in India. The idea of working in a management consulting firm really struck me. I’m writing you to ask for your help and advises how to prepare for case interviews.
I am new to the game and often find myself lost in the mist of complicated information flying around me. Your website is mentioned quite often by my school’s consulting club so I am trying my luck here…
How to prepare for a Case Interview from the get-go (a.k.a: my reply to him)
Thank you for your interest in our website. I totally understand your situation. Usually the beginning is the most difficult part and I personally feel bad for so many great people (who I think would have made really good consultants) drop out of “the game” just because of the unnecessarily confusing start.
This motivates me a lot in terms of developing easy-to-understand beginner materials available free on multiple channels.
One of our most recent efforts is the series of Youtube videos that explain case interview basics. Let’s check out the first installment:
After watching the video, you should have a good top-down view of various concepts of the game. You would know exactly what you would want to explore next. There are tons of good follow-up videos and materials that you can check out, such as case interview prep. I won’t bore you by listing them out in this reply, where you go next is up to you.
I hope this answers your question. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions about how to prepare for a case interview. I appreciate you seeking out for help rather than just dropping straight out of the game. Keep up the good determination… you will need a lot of it!
