Hi everyone. 30 min unstructured and 1 hour structured case at ZS associates for a associate consultant position. Can use all the advice/help I can get as I am 23 yo and have never done a case interview before. Thank you in advance!

Do as many practice case studies as possible online. When you get into the interview, document assumptions and explain how you’d solve the problem. You won’t have enough time to solve the whole case

lol what? R U serious?

I’m probably not going to get it anyways 🤣

Damn if you got an AC interview at ZS at 23 with 1 YOE at KPMG we really are desperate for resources 🤓 nothing personal, good luck though!

OP, did it work? I’m 22, 8 months experience. Associate role for SIPA. No case interview experience as well

How did it go?

I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?
