I am doing UXR interviews, and although I have read that a background in design is not required for UXR, I have been asked a few times now what my design experience is, and if I know how to use design apps. I have ample research experience and a solid understanding of product development cycles, which I think should be enough to land me a UXR role, but is it? I would love to hear from folk whether it’d be worth taking a few design courses!
Hi all! I have interviews at BCG coming soon and I need to get up to speed on case interview preparation. I’ve never had MBB case interviews before and I’ve just started my preparation on crafting cases. I’m hearing quite a lot that it is important to practice with other people to have an optimal preparation and was wondering how true it was? I have nobody to practice with at the moment and I honestly don’t realise how crucial it is… any thoughts ?
Had a successful screen call for Deloitte strategy consulting, and the recruiter promised to schedule follow up interviews within 2-3 days. I followed up after waiting for a week and was promised a response from another recruiter. It’s been another 3 business days. I hope your consulting teams are not as bad as your recruiters..😑
How can I get more interview responses?

Why are firms still so obsessed with geography? I applied to this firm’s Boston office because I loved the firm, culture, and practice, and half of my interview was about Boston. Sigh.
