How much weight do business cases have in an interview at a consulting firm? Can a candidate with a solid resume be rejected because he was too excited and didn't do the case at his best? Or do you prefer a candidate with a less good curriculum vitae but who manages to discreetly carry out the business case?

Seeing that the case seeks to replicate what you’ll see on the job it’s kinda important. I had interviews for 2 different companies for my current field and the case study was the primary reason I got one and not the other

Is it a bad idea to accept interview invites for roles I’m not super interested in while I’m progressing my first choice option?

Also kind of feel like I’m wasting the other person’s time

Hi All,

Has anyone ever had to do the second step of an interview over slack? It was a legitimate company not a scam. The person I would be working with said the second interview after an assignment was over slack. They asked me in the first interview about my writing skills. They said since it's a remote company most people I'd never speak with directly and everything would be asynchronous through slack. Is this typical?

Anyone have tips for proper slack etiquette or resources to share?
