Ask them to send questions in advance so you can provide thoughtful replies. That will weed out the majority of them.

Tbh when they’re not interested I really want to ask them why they are even here wasting both our times 🤷‍♀️

I straight up ask why they contacted me and then give feedback based on their behavior. If they feel they have nothing to lose I lay it on them.

Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.
