Your career center should have a resume review service or you can ask your academic advisor to review it. They will have hundreds of examples of successful resumes. I’ve never paid for a resume review.

Just no… dude buck up write your own resume. Take it to your career center and have them review it.

Nope - ask alumni and upperclassmen you know well

No. Resume reviews and honestly even case coaches are only useful if you yourself cannot find people to help you. I found a solid group of fellow interviewees to work with, and while it was partially blind leading blind, we all ended up where we wanted to be (MBB, top-tier boutiques)

The caveat is if you would benefit from the structure of having someone set things up for you and hold you accountable

I did it. It helped me land interviews every where I applied. But it can be pricey.

KPMG reached out to me I never applied. So I did not overkill my resume to get in. I just gave them what I had.

My career center gave very bad advice, they told me my resume was perfect so I didn't make any changes until it got reviewed by consultants and I got told otherwise. But you guys give very good feedback I appreciate it

That's true, thanks D1. I'll probably stick to asking more people around

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today. It’s a small startup. HR interviewed me and asked all the hard hitting questions (how do you get design inspiration, how do you deal with design roadblocks, what sets you apart for this role?) which I thought was odd for a screening interview. They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO. Anyone else think this is odd?

Hi, I have a 1st round interview coming up for an associate position at L.E.K. Consulting and was wondering if anyone could give some insight into the interview?

Kind of nervous - never done a case interview and feel a little underprepared
