Hi All - I have upcoming final rounds with Deloitte Strategy (Transformation Strategy & Design): 1 case, 2 behavioral. I feel a little under qualified. I’m coming from a non-Big 4 Advisory group.

Any tips or good vibes would be appreciated.

Confidence! You got this. The fact that you're aware of some areas for you to further grow shows that you have the ability to self reflect and identify steps to improve. That's huge. And, to be honest, so many people are faking it until they make it. Just prep for the interview and do the research, and I'm sure you'll do great.

Usually case interviews are scheduled for 30 mins like the other two rounds. What we look for @ Deloitte is candidate’s confidence and approach to the problem statement. We also like to help candidates get to the solution by working with you. What’s a strict no for me is candidate not listening to the full question and not clarifying their understanding, and jump directly to the approach. Be calm, carefully listen and think before specifying the approach.

Do some studying, rehearse your thoughts/responses, look for the most commonly asked questions, maintain a level of confidence and neutrality throughout the experience (don’t be a robot though). You wouldn’t have gotten the interview if your profile didn’t match some of the items they are looking for! Win or lose you’ll know you tried hard.

Deloitte’s strategy group is not what you highlighted above .. they had to be clubbed with analytics to survive in 2020.. ton more layoffs in this group happened than in sibling groups ..

Go on YouTube and look thru videos on casing. Go Thru a bunch and define the buckets/ structure and write them down. Also look at the basic formulas that might come up. Best of luck

Fwiw, I just came from a non consulting/non advisory firm (Maximus) to D on the S&A side as a SC. You’ll be okay, don’t over think it.

In terms of case prep I’ve been working through Taylor Warfield’s “Hacking the Case Interview” and “The Ultimate Case Interview Workbook”.

Don’t worry about legitimacy of your firm. Questions will be around the kind of work you have done and not about your firm. Don’t let jitters get to you :). Just be confident and articulate well. All the best!
