Most fit interviews in consulting are the same - do some research (Google or some in the book case in point) on the potential questions and prepare your answers to give the qualities a consulting firm wants (collaborative, friendly / likable, high energy, handles stress / difficult people in a friendly way, etc.) When you prep your answers, just write a few bullets using the STAR approach, practice answering a few times and then in the interview don’t worry about saying exactly what you prepped - just speak naturally Fit interview is mostly about gauging whether you’re likable - just be high energy (not over the top), communicate clearly, calmly and smile (reasonably) when you answer
