Do any of the firms (Big 4/MBB) have a ban on charging strangers for mock case interviews? Heard of some people doing it as a side hustle, but sounds questionable

If you did, you probably could not use the name of the firm to credentialize yourself.

EY1, I don’t think that’s realistic. The firm name legitimizes the price being charged. Also, why would I pay someone to help me with mock case interviews if I don’t know that it worked for them? Firm credentials are necessary.

I'm pretty sure that EY has a policy on it.

We have a lot of restrictions about doing other income generating work so I imagine it would be disallowed under that

If anyone offers to give you a case and then charges you for it just don’t pay them.

How would you communicate the involuntary termination of a team member at a startup?
