I did, and it 100% did. The program itself was useless, but the 1-1 coaching and story prep got me through the interview.

Which company?

I used rocketblocks for drills and BCG gave me free access to CaseCoach, which is best for cases.

Both helped quite a bit for practice, but I would say craftingcases’ free course helped the most conceptually.

I didn't even have a partner to practice with.

I just drilled cases by myself.

Yeah I did case prep on my own, but PEI prep with a coach and it helped a lot

Yes

Made a big difference for me, but mainly the one on one case coaching.

Which programs did you'll use? Currently prepping and trying to see if itll be helpful

Random, but valid/persistent thought.

After 2 years of a pandemic and working independently for many years, I am not feeling interviews AT ALL. There are points in the interview where I want to just say "Look! Either hire me or don't".

How can I get over this feeling? I'm over the whole "stand in the line of fire to prove how good I am" bs. Any recommendations for getting over this or possible industries to pivot into to avoid bs interview processes and ghosting?

I just finished an interview and the hiring manager made some comments during the interview that I believe are 🚩🚩🚩. Among the comments were, “the person needs to help show Sr. Management the FP&A dept is important and brings value.” “I’m going to be honest, we have other candidates for this position, you need to bring your game to the second interview”. The rest of the interview was describing their problems as a dept and then proceeds to ask if I can handle it. How can I respectfully decline?
