Going into my first round of interviews with BCG a couple of weeks from now. Because of covid, the interviews (a fit and a case) will be over a video call. Any tip on how to handle the case interview on video rather in person?

Same process as in person. I've been looking and have had multiple case interviews over video at this point (Facebook not BCG).

Additional point - maintain some form of eye contact as you would in a face to face setup. Also, you may have to explain your case structure/logic a bit more clearly as the interviewer can’t see your rough sheet

I have an interview with BCG coming up as well. My understanding is that there is a standard behavior / fit over video and then the case is self-service online. You don’t have the online case?

I’ve already done the online case with the chatbot and was successful. Shout if you need more insights on this! My next round will then be a fit interview and then a case with a human haha

Make sure you have a good enough screen to see the case exhibits. I used an iPad for one round and had to keep pinch zooming 😄

Would you guys advise to also show your notes as you go through or just describe your thought process?

absolutely not! Communicate clearly with a top down structure. No one wants to see your notes.
