Hi fishes! Staring at an MBB soon! Understand this question has been raised before but I’d love to hear experiences people had with specific online courses for excel and PowerPoint and how relevant they turned out to be once you’ve started the job (eg Wall Street Prep / breaking into Wall Street has been brought up before but is it not “consulting” enough?) TIA!

I’ve interviewed at a few places to leave public and go into industry. Each place is similar in size and industry. Regarding busy season hours I’ve gotten three responses of: busy season for the month of January with 50’s, busy season for December- January with 40’s-50’s, and January-March with 50’s. I know hours and busy times differ with businesses, but I’d love some insight on what busy times and hours looks like for other people in industry?
