Second round at a boutique shop and it’s a case interview.. anyone heard of that for a director with 11 years consulting experience already?

And curious how long people normally spend preparing for one? I’ve got 1 week and have never looked at a case... got hired through a firm not requiring one then transferred to big four again w/o one. Don’t think I’ll have time to prep with all my projects going on..

I had a final round of interview yesterday. At the end of the interview, the interviewer said ' let's stay in touch'. A bad sign, right? Should I give up the hope?

Say that you live in country A. You apply to a job in company X in country B (connecting with a director through LinkedIn). 4/5 days after a recruiter talks to you for a position in company X but in country A. You strongly prefer country B over A, so you state clearly to HR that you're willing to be part of the process only if you can also interview in B. You do not bring this up again and are in last round for X in country A. You have not heard back yet from B but prefer it. WWYD?
