Need your help 🐠 Have a case interview for a HF Ops/Strategy role, not sure where to start my prep. I haven’t done a single case interview before, have got some basic finance knowledge (asset classification, coverage, and so on). Where would you suggest I start? This would literally be my dream exit and I’m hoping I can fake it till I make it. Any advice appreciated!

Looking for some sincere advice. I absolutely bombed a case interview today. I’m defeated. I performed as well as someone with zero preparation after over a month of prep. I seem to always panic, I get disorganized, I’m flustered and lose sight of important relationships in cases. I feel like I need a complete overhaul. Any advice of what has worked to help you change your instincts? I care more about building up my skills and self improvement than I do about doing this for an interview. TIA
