Paper LBO theory is usually sufficient for places that routinely hire consultants. Have a good why finance story, make sure you're reasonably up to date on market news. Sign up for Dan Primack's daily email, maybe Fortune's Term Sheet as well

I heard I should focus more on fit but should I expect LBO q’s? Haven’t really done financial modeling in my projects...

What position are you interviewing for?

There's usually a separate LBO modeling exam from your fit interview

@BCG1, it’s for a “business analyst” position...job description makes it sound like a regular associate role though. 2-3 yrs IB/strategy consulting exp req. Doing market/industry research, financial modeling, due diligence

This is great thanks B2!

So I just finished an interview round for a startup, and despite my better judgement, I built a model for measuring success of a marketing campaign - part of their ‘case exercise’ to be completed at home. They just let me know that they’re going with ‘other candidates’ and I realized I built them a reusable framework for free. 🤡

A few months ago, I interviewed for a job I really wanted. They said it was between me and an internal candidate but that they were giving it to the internal candidate as a promotion. Just yesterday they reposted the role, so I reached back out to the recruiter. She said it is the same role, and they thought they had a decision but are starting the search over again. How do you interpret this? What could have happened? Should I try to reapply?
