I have a case interview coming up soon. I never thought about working with a case coach or study group that some websites offered but some people highly suggest them instead of working solo. What's your take on this? Should I really pay for some premium service even though I feel comfortable with case interviews?

Case coaches are really good from going 0-80 fast but won't speed up 80-90 very fast

If you feel comfortable with case interviews it might be worth to ask some friends if you have any in consulting, find people on here willing to run some, or the firm you’re recruiting with might have people to run some with you (McK recently did this with me). If you get good feedback from those then maybe not worth getting a professional but if from those you find out there’s an area where you need improvement then you could focus your attention on those!

Just ask your recruiter for a case buddy

I don’t recommend or recommend against paying for coach. However I would say that you need practice partners at least to simulate the real experience

My mentor suggested that I do a little more homework by using an org I am in to make sure the change will be an improvement and to know what to ask for in interviews if I decide to start looking around.

They gave me a range for the role so would I just go with that? It’s higher than average in the market and one I’d be happy with but I feel weird since I’m not actually mid level.

I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.
