Has anyone who was headed for the Loop signed/paid a consultant to help in their preparation?

Was it essential, useful, or overkill (and why)?

any recommendations are welcome. am prepping for an L6 role

No, I didn't pay for prep, but I think the biggest thing to consider is, are you good at interviewing in general? If not, the preparation may be good to help you organize your thoughts and overcome any of your weaknesses. I prepared by writing out stories for each LP, mainly because I tend to overlook a lot of successes in my career and the brainstorming was needed. After, I focused on familiarizing myself with telling my stories via STAR method, which was the biggest hurdle for me. At the end of the day, you're telling them about what you did and you already know what you did. Be yourself and be concise. I received my offer last Friday (non-tech). Best of luck!

I did some interview coaching with former employees for a job at Google. It cost me 350$ for 4h of coaching. It helped me loads and I got an offer from them afterwards. But then Google announced a hiring freeze (unlucky) so I applied at Amazon. Got 2 offers from AMZ and accepted one last week. Didn’t have any coaching on the LP yet the coaching helped me gain confidence in my responses and I’ve learned a lot.

I used a platform called IGotAnOffer and bought a coaching pack for 4h. DM me if you’d like the name of the coaches I used (I used 4 different coaches - 1 per session)
