i was told that they would ask “which industry would you be interested in?” during the interview...how do i go about this? probably can’t just say i’ll take whatever

Some people fall into it via people the like working with (most common). Others try lots of things proactively. While some have a genuine passion that draws them to a industry.

For example I fell into M&A and really enjoy looking at niche markets, and seeing what makes business models ‘successful’ in these markets.

My advice for interviews is just pick something which is a good bet for you or makes sense (I.e you like rapid changing customer preferences and technology accelerators = retail).

Then back yourself into that, doesn’t matter once you have the offer.
