MIs interview process is identical to the generalist process. If you’re an MI consultant you’ll have the choice to work on the traditional strategy engagements as well as to stick around a bit longer to help coach the clients through it.

So should expect same case interview topics as the generalist. Having case on phone so just worried about the math question as I won't be able to see it and would have to rely on listening it from the interviewer. Makes a difference when you can see the figures vs hearing it.

Yes, expect the same. That is the main difference with the initial phone case, no exhibits. Just listen carefully, take your time, if in doubt with what you’ve heard - confirm with the interviewer. Good luck!

It’s identical to the generalist interview! And M1 is right that once you start full-time, you have your choice of strategy vs implementation engagements.

I had my choice of generalist-ops vs ops-implementation and I chose the former. Mostly bc I knew more people aligned to ops than MI. It ends up being similar now that I’m full-time. Mostly I’m just glad I’m not a generalist 😂

Had an initial phone screening/interview with my dream firm. I’m not sure how it went. There were some good, some bad (or at least I think) parts. I was referred by a partner and this is my first time phone screening and was expecting a lot more questions. I was asked a couple “tell me about” questions and then went into salary expectations and open to relocating. How much weight do they put into the phone screen and is it normal to wonder how they went?

To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀

I have a but of a situation. Just started a job as a Sr associate and found out a program manager was hired a month earlier who has equivalent exp/education as me. I like my job but feel that I shouldn’t be in a more junior role than this manager since we have very similar backgrounds. I interviewed for this role after they had already hired the program manager (I didn’t know at the time I was interviewing). Thoughts on what I can do?
