Deloitte How brutal was the Case Study interview and are there any lessons learned you could offer? Anything you wished you’d done to prepare for the interview?

Adventures in Interviewing: Today we were wrapping up a pretty good interview with a strong potential candidate. When asked if they had any last questions, they said that they had an issue with our Work from Home policy (we’re 100% WFH right now, and will not consider a re-opening strategy until everyone is vaccinated). The candidate declared that they did not believe in vaccines, so we needed to allow her to be a permanent remote hire. I guess I’m glad about the dodged bullet, so there’s that.

Hi, I have a PE case study interview in the coming week and was wondering whether there's an accepted rule for modelling returns - should you use the FY21E figure (assuming some rationale to the run rate) or just use the most recent actual? Motivation for asking is partly as I know lots of deals are being traded off forward EBITDAs so thought maybe using the next year expected figure would be common? Thanks in advance!
