Consulting Exit Opportunities

If my goal is to land in tech strategy should I prep for true strategy cases or more tech like cases? I plan to start over as a business analyst so not sure of the type of interview questions/cases.

My advice is just go for it now. Apply and knock out the interviews. It sounds like you know what path you want and that is more than most of us. Good luck!

@A1 is spot on. No case type questions in my interviews. If you are trying to interview at Google make sure you can adequately demonstrate comfortability with ambiguity and change

@A1 hopefully I won’t waste two months of prep. 😑

Tech Strategy cases are from technology perspective. Check Deloitte sample cases on there careers page. Don’t waste your time in Corporate Strategy cases, although knowing the structures help.

I feel that there's an inherent stereotype that Asians are to be a Designer or an Art Director. I'm an Asian copywriter, and I feel that people look at me as an oddity because of my race sometimes.
