Hi all! I have interviews at BCG coming soon and I need to get up to speed on case interview preparation. I’ve never had MBB case interviews before and I’ve just started my preparation on crafting cases. I’m hearing quite a lot that it is important to practice with other people to have an optimal preparation and was wondering how true it was? I have nobody to practice with at the moment and I honestly don’t realise how crucial it is… any thoughts ?Boston Consulting Group
I have a signed contact with a tier 2. I also have an intro into MBB. A (boomer) friend of my parents with years of experience in consulting told me consulting is a small world and it isn’t a good look to apply when you’ve signed an offer. Is that boomer energy? Is it ok to apply to MBB during my ‘gardening leave’?
All this talk about MBB and MBBD is nonsense. We all know who the king is. After all, we are a "category of one".

Anyone here on a sponsored worker visa? I am switching employers to Accenture. I am being told I cannot clear a right to work check until my BRP arrives. And because of this I will need to have my start date pushed by two weeks (start date is mid Jan right now, visa approved yesterday and they need the documents by end of week). Does this make sense? I'm trying to argue my case as I don't like the idea of losing two weeks, and I am approved. I cannot control the post delivery times...
Who’s got that A&M referral?! 👀
Looking to pivot to a financial analyst, but the company I really want to join see me as a better fit as an assistant controller. Should tell them I just want to the FA role or go for the accountant role because they are a top tier company? Will I be able to pivot later?

Has anyone else taken a hit to their work confidence during covid? I tell myself that just because I’m bad at WFH doesn’t mean I’m necessarily bad at this job. But I’m a junior, so I don’t even know if that’s true.
Does anyone else NOT like WFH? If I see another “omgggg I’m in like such a good place wfh I have more time with my cat and children and I do yoga 24/7” post I’m gonna lose it. I miss people and travel.
Possible to exit FDD to strategic finance? Also, can anyone explain what a career in strategic finance entails? From my understanding, you create analysis that people make strategic decisions based on. But not really M&A (that would be more like Corp dev)

What on earth are conservatives doing? They're encouraging Russia to invade another country. Why?
Why shouldn’t I buy leveraged S&P 500 ETFs as part of a buy-and-hold strategy if I’m in my 20s, don’t have immediate need for the cash I’m investing, and believe that stock picking / active management are basically bullshit, but like the idea of taking on more risk? Are there better ways to expose myself to higher risk while still tracking the broader economy? Don’t say crypto. I hate crypto. Fully serious question.
