(cont.) how to prep for the interviews and case assignment, and so much more. I feel so unprepared and I’m terrified. I want to finally become a normal professional and I want to do well. Any tips/advice?

Hi there, sounds like mostly normal jitters. I am from IO also, feel free to DM. Now is a good time to position yourself and apply. Look up how to form up your CV, ideally get a referral, youtube or ask about interview processes and practice. Also, have some ideas about what work experience you might be looking for.

I really appreciate it. Will reach out now :)
