Case Interview Prep

When doing profitability calculation or NPV, do interviewers usually ask candidates to come up with their own estimates/assumptions for costs, both one-time and recurring?

McKinsey Analytics and similar groups - do they travel as much as standard management consultants? If not how much do they travel? Specifically data scientist and data translator roles. Also, can anyone shed some light on the data translator role? Is there any modeling or analysis or is it a pure liaison role?

I’ve got a bachelor’s in Economics (4.0 bby) but I’ve been stuck in PMO roles the last few years. I feel like I was dumb for not doing something more STEM related like computer science during undergrad. Seems like there’s no Econ jobs that don’t also require comp sci knowledge. Maybe I just don’t know how to market myself with an Econ only degree? Feels like I need at least a masters to do anything with Econ without the comp sci part. Should I just learn a programming language lol

Why do industry jobs invite you for an interview when they know who they already want to give the job to? It's a waste of time, this has to stop.

If a small company I am eyeing is only hiring “Freelance” roles (posted jobs used to be full time before Covid), is that a bad sign for their balance sheet? And I should stay away?
