MBB interviewers: “What’s your management style”, “What’s your communication preference”, ever hurt to provide a story to illustrate those traits? Or best spend that time elsewhere (“tell me about a time” questions, the case itself, etc). Ideally would do both, but only 30/45 mins here. TIA!
How do I get in contact with a headhunter? Or at least get on their radar.

The volume of stock photography using people staring at their phone with a huge smile on their face is driving me nuts. Is that the best we can do? Ads, emails, banners, etc., sea of sameness.
