Hi fish there 🐠 What are the differences between the first round interviews and the second round? Id like to know where to focus on for the second round interviews preparation. How did your second round interviews go before? What kind of suggestions you would offer? Would really appreciate you sharing the experience 🙌🏼

Just did my BCG final, to me it was totally the same

First and second round are the same, it’s just APs and Partners doing the interviewing

e.g. I heard that at BCG there is also a personality test during the second round. Not really heard anything about it on the internet.

Happy Friday again Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral, there is a huge push for EHs right now. I’ve had several friends join who have been thrilled with the first few months, and several referrals currently in the interview process. I’m more than happy to help: - Connect you to friends who’ve come in as experienced hires from Various consulting firms (big 4, S&, ATK, etc.) - Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep - Share interview tips

I have an interview with a "biglaw" firm tomorrow afternoon-- any last minute tips or advice from those who work in big firms? I'm a 6th year associate and have never worked at a firm with more than 5 other attorneys. The interview is going to be with a panel of "at least" three partners and the pressure is on.

Never did a real interview in my life, and bad at interviewing. In this case would it be better to go through a recruiter over referral? Since they would help prep me more and tell me what to expect

Any MBB fish that went from T2 > industry > MBB? Why did you go back into consulting? I am in a pretty good role right now but besides industry circles, I have no branding. MBB has invited me for interviews. Should I even consider? TC is about the same and I have decent hours. Worth going back for the brand, network, flexibility in/possibility of better exit opps?

What does it mean when someone says that "we are a high leverage organization"? That phrase came up in an interview. I don't remember the full context, but it definitely wasn't in the context of debt - something about the organization's activities, how it makes an impact, hierarchal structure, or something else. It was an interview with a VC firm.
