MBB interview tomorrow. I’ve been studying hard for the last two weeks. Do I go to my intramural b-ball game @ 9pm or study the rest of the night. Confidence level 50%

I would say study, but if your confidence is only at 50% after 2 weeks it may just be better to distract yourself and have some fun

First interview went really well I felt good about it and solved the case well. The woman was really sweet and we got along well! I answered the case correctly and felt good. Second interview he asked me one question (tell me about yourself). Then we got right into the case. It was a straightforward case on cost cutting. I didn’t know how to do a calculation and he basically told me they hire based on the case :(. Embarrassing because it was straightforward and I had all the right solutions on my paper I just didn’t do the right calculation

Doing my best!!!

I just went to mine. Have mine tomorrow as well. Best of luck OP! One night won’t make a difference.

I don’t really get it @mck 2

What role OP?

Mck2 is saying go study lol. Which one is the interview with?

Why don’t you get some exercise for 30 minutes to clear your head and study again.

Sorry Op, had the same happen to me :/

Yep same with me. I think they hold consultants to a higher quant level

Mine was a technical interview because the role was technical. The question was kinda hard. I don’t know how I did. Answered the question to my best possible ability, but don’t know if he was satisfied. He said to contact the recruiter and I should be hearing back soon. What does this mean? The anxiety is killing me!!!

Hey you never know! Keep us posted I feel invested in this now haha

Question for recent Deloitters and other consultants who work at consulting firms with job application forms like Taleo (a detailed form) Did anyone skip the non-required blanks and yet still get an interview/offer? For example, Deloitte application has non-required fields asking for supervisors from each job. I would like to put a note: “My supervisor does not know I am job searching; references available upon request should I be selected as a finalist candidate.” I worry that’ll look bad
