I have wondered the same. But these recruiters are always calling. Someone is making lateral moves.

~4 months ago I had a corp strategy interview at Tmobile. The case question was “should we enter the video streaming market?” After going through the case I concluded that no they shouldn’t. At the end of the interview they let me know that they haven’t publicly announced it yet but they actually are entering the market (with Tvision). Lo and behold I didn’t get the next interview. Today they announced they’re shutting it down. 😂

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies.

How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?

My view: about 30%. That is still a great number, because it’s far higher than zero.
