Hi All,
I wish to join one of the top consulting firms like McKinsey, BCG, B&C etc. I am currently working as a Business Analyst with a work ex of 3 years.
I have started exploring on my own and one thing that came out different were Case Studies interviews and I have started reading and preparing for them.
I will do MBA also post working in one of these firms.
I was hoping if anyone can help me to prepare better or suggest a plan to land a job for a role that aligns with my ambitions.
Thank You

MBB hire only from tier 1 UG colleges for their front end consulting roles (IITB/D, SRCC etc.) However, the knowledge/research or tech roles at their capability network are open to a broader set of candidates. You can do a bit of research on LinkedIn to see if you fit the bill and can take a call.
Regarding case interviews, you can refer to books like case interviews cracked or IIM A/B casebook. Will come handy if you land a call.

I have been reading case interview secrets by victor cheng for now, but will definitely try these books as well.
Thank you for the suggestions. Really appreciate it!

I don’t think I’m great at interviewing but overall (even outside of product) I’ve gotten offers with not that much work tbh. What’s your experience here?

The most frustrating thing about getting rejected for a job is the excuse they use which gives zero insight into what it really was.

During my interview for a Senior role they asked what I felt was important in my role as an assurance senior. One of the things I said is I felt coaching was an important part of my role and gave my reasons. Their excuse for not giving me the role was because the company wasn't big enough and they didn't have anyone for me to coach.
