LEK interviews are quite enjoyable. The quant case will likely be a market size and there’s a great video on the LEK YouTube channel to showcase their approach. Then for the strategy case, it won’t feel like the cases you’ve likely been doing (i.e., very answer and process driven) and will feel more like a flowing/qualitative conversation. Having a good structure is always important and other than that just make sure you are explaining your thought process to the interviewer, punting it back to them when you need a hand, and communicating clearly what’s on your scratch paper since I’m assuming you’ll be on video, not in person. Hope that eases some of your nerves! Good luck :)

Thank you! Definitely makes me feel more confident hearing they were good experiences. I’ll check out that video, too. Yes, it’ll be on video so hopefully the paper will come through clearly, but I appreciate the insight!

I’ve interviewed at so many companies in the last 6 months it’s hard to keep track but the LEK interviews were among my favorites. Interviewed last Friday still waiting to hear back though 🤞

That’s great to hear. Like I said I have not done a case interview yet, so a little nervous but glad to be hearing positive experiences. Mines coming up, but best of luck to you, sure you did great especially coming from ZS!
