Target school MBA grad preparing for EY-Parthenon

Interview format (mentioned in the interview invite)
2 cases (directors)
1 behavioral (partner)

What cases to expect? I've read mostly market sizing, m&a

For behavioral, anything specific?

Shouldn’t your target school prepare you for this sort of thing

Aim higher than EYP. Also, all consulting will be mixed under the NewCo which will likely be called Parthenon.

Lol y’all wish

Been through process. One curveball behavioral they throw out to be prepared for is ‘Tell me about a time you were brave?’ - not an easy top of mind one to pull so prepare a compelling answer.

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if I wood chuck could chuck wood?

Well, a New York state wildlife expert, Richard Thomas, decided to answer that question some years back. He found that, while a woodchuck doesn't actually chuck wood, they do in fact chuck quite a bit of dirt when digging out a burrow. On a good day they can chuck around 35 cubic feet of dirt (or about 700 pounds).

Hi All,

Has anyone ever had to do the second step of an interview over slack? It was a legitimate company not a scam. The person I would be working with said the second interview after an assignment was over slack. They asked me in the first interview about my writing skills. They said since it's a remote company most people I'd never speak with directly and everything would be asynchronous through slack. Is this typical?

Anyone have tips for proper slack etiquette or resources to share?

What was the method you used to get your position at Google?
