A full LBO uses the 3 statements, so the latter is a pre-requisite to that, yes. Really just need to know how to do an LBO

LBO definitely. Some shops might have you do a basic 3 statement model or at least ask you technical questions about how the 3 statements interact with each other. Most firms place much higher emphasis on LBO than DCF modeling during the interview process from what I have experienced/heard from others. DCF is the easiest of the 3 IMO, so you shouldn’t have to spend too much time brushing up on it

Hi everyone, I kindly ask for suggestions here. I was been referred by my friend to financial service tax in EY.After a call with the MD, he said that my background doesn’t align with theirs because they usually hire Staff1 from campus recruiting, they don’t hire Staff2 and I’m not qualified for Senior1. I am a staff accountant in a local public accounting firm for two and a half years with CPA. Im having a interview with EY recruiter soon! Any suggestions on tax lines? Or tips for interview?

In the process of interviewing with EY and I got connected with the interviewers in LinkedIn. Would it be weird if I send request to connect with a partner in the group in interviewing for in my market? The interviewers I talked to were not in my market and this is a national group. Since I haven’t had an introduction or actual call with that person yet I’m hesitant (and probably shouldn’t) but would be interested in people’s thought. :)
