Incredibly creatively?

From my experience interviewing with them, you don’t have to spin anything. They have a very structured and methodical way of interviewing. It’s about how impactful you have been from behavioral perspective irrespective of strategy and your ability to handle a case in a structured, creative and analytical manner.

PwC1 is completely right

You were successful at implementation cause you understood it’s place in the clients strategic goals, rather than delivering off the shelf projects

You know how to call out “strategy” BS because you know what it takes to realistically implement their grandiose ideas. 😂

Implementation tied to digital reinvention. Ladder back. Don’t say you did something you didn’t but that you want to move in that direction.

OP did you apply online or get reached out to by a recruiter

How’d you land interview from implementation exp? That’s all I have to....

Eh very different things: I would say the plan and analysis or discovery phases were the strategy portion and then you worked on the implementation as well. Make it a full blown project

MBB is in the implementation phase so I would be so concerned tbh

Tell them you have a strategy for implementation

Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean? TIA.
