I have a case interview scheduled for next week for a LinkedIn BizOps Senior Associate Role. I have 4.5 YOE in tech consulting but haven’t had to do a true case study since I was interviewing for consulting almost 5 years ago, but the thought of a case study stresses me out just as much (if not more) than it did back then. I normally do super well for behavioral interviews but historically freak myself out for cases. Any tips on what the case might be like or generally what to expect?

Thank you! Just messaged you

I went through the process, it’s mostly a real problem that they’ve solved in the past. They’ll ask you for your solution, and then will give you the solution they implemented and it’s sort of a discussion on pros and cons and impact. Def not a McKinsey level case study.

Wonderful feedback — cool if I send you a DM to get some more details (if you’re willing to share them that is)

Side note: For what it’s worth, I fully realize it’s not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, and yet here I am at 3am watching case study YouTube videos🤪

It's just a normal strategy case. Likely a project they actually did, not necessarily tech related

Any tips at landing an interview at LinkedIn? Yep have ~3.5 years of BO consulting/tech experience looking to make the jump

Scour LinkedIn itself to find a connection who can give you a referral and see if that person is willing to reach out to the recruiter and/or hiring manager after they submit the referral so your name is top of mind. That’s how I landed this interview and others coming up with tech companies. Kinda just have to get past the embarrassment and be unabashedly thirsty

How did it go? Any insights you can share from your interview?

Also, what kind of compensation and role can I expect once I join back considering I get a 16.5LPA+ Bonus here. Do you recommend going back to ZS or should I stay with EY India?
