The initial 15 minute interview is really just to check that you have a pulse, maybe just be prepared to answer the question ‘Why Consulting?’. For the rest of the interview process have like 3-5 stories that you can apply to different behavioral questions, remember to use the STAR method in your presentation.

Yah, just put in mind that they’re desperate for people right now and that they need you more than you need them. The initial 15 min interview is just to make sure that you’re a sane human being.

Be prepared to talk compensation. Have a range ready. Probably verify what you have on your resume to confirm you are eligible for the role

Don’t even sweat a 15 min call lol. At most you’ll have to give an elevator pitch about yourself.

Started a new job very recently. Like under a month. Interviewing (because i never turn down a convo) at another place that I’m fairly sure will offer me a job. Both these opportunities are good. The first offers a good brand building opp. The second offers a great new media opp. If these events coincided I would take the second. A bit torn on how to handle

Is it better to wait until promo before switching to other firms? Applying to MBB but worried that if I get the offer I’ll end up switching right before I get my promo from Deloitte. I would likely reset to entry level at MBB either way but the pay would be a substantial bump from my current pay (even after promo). I’m in my second year at Deloitte out of undergrad.
