Hi,

My doubt is if they feel I am not completely fit for this position why they took the interview?

Has anyone ever (successfully) applied frameworks from other disciplines as opposed to the usual structures you see in case interview prep? I have some generalist MBB interviews coming up- My background is in health & life sciences not business- so applying things like logic models and theory of change models is much more natural for me rather than 3cs, etc. I feel they can be adapted for many case interview prompts, &I can apply them more confidently- but don’t want to be too out of the box.

Why does some interviewer goes all the way to humiliate the interviewee if he/she doesn’t know an answer of the question which they think everyone might know but it’s not the case.. just because they have faced that situation in their technical career doesn’t mean everyone has faced the same. I’m constantly giving interviews and gratefully I’ve bagged offers from 3 Fortune 500 firms and the firms who are not even under fortune 1000 are the ones who have this kind of attitude. What say?

Hi everyone. Hope all is well.

Recently took the McKinsey & Company game (not sure if I have an interview yet but preparing nonetheless). It’s an entry level business analyst position and an entry level digital position and was wondering if anyone wanted to case prep with me. I’m willing to work on anyones time zone. (I’m located in Sydney, Australia).

As my last agency was falling apart, I started looking for a new job, and per usual, it took a while to find the right fit. I hit the last interview for a job that sounded collaborative, accepted my skills, moved me to “Senior”. But they asked for my salary range and told me they had an interview w/someone else. I wanted the job so much that I think I lowballed at $75k. They immediately accepted. Am I underpaid because I was excited?? (Altho the job is awesome so far.)
