Have a first round strategy and planning associate interview tomorrow for ZS. I heard the case is pretty quantitative. Will the math mostly center around traditional casing frameworks like market sizing, revenue generation, NPV analysis or should I be prepared for more exotic calculations?

Traditional. It won’t get exotic (although you can if you want). Good luck!

Nothing too fancy! Just be clear on how you’re getting some figures and feel free to outline your math before executing! Best of luck :)

Why won’t more employers offer the opportunity for international students to join them? I just convinced my startup to sponsor me and I’ve been leading the process. All I had to do was register us on E-verify (FREE), and hired a law firm to help us with the H1B which will cost $7K. I still have two years of stem OPT on top of that. I thought the process was way more complicated. Not sure why some firms say they don’t accept international students when the process is so straight forward.

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
