Mock Case Consulting Interviews – Spring 2019

Practice is the key to success in the consulting interview. Consulting interviews include fit/behavior questions, market sizing questions and the case interview. If you are recruiting this summer/fall for a consulting internship or full-time position for 2020, you need to practice and the mock interview is a great way to gain an understanding of your strengths and areas to improve. Members of the class of 2019 who have successfully interviewed and landed full-time positions at consulting firms will be hosting 1-hour mock interviews all day in the Loeb Center. Each interview will consist of a 45 minute interview covering fit/behavior, market sizing and case questions followed by a 15 minute feedback session. Interview slots are available every hour from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. (except 12-1).

Spaces are limited. RSVP on Handshake and complete the survey upon registration to indicate your preferred interview start time. You will receive a confirmation of your interview time by April 26. You should plan to participate as if this is a real interview (dress, preparation, resumes in hand, etc).

Practice! Practice! Practice!
For anyone preparing for summer/fall interviews in finance (Investment banking, sell-side sales and trading/research, buy-side opportunities or private equity), practice is essential. If you are a sophomore (class of 2021) or junior (class of 2020) now is the time to prepare and determine areas of strength and areas where you need to improve prior to going into those first finance interviews. Members of the class of 2019 who successfully interviewed last fall and will be starting full time positions in finance have agreed to host several mock interview sessions for sophomores and juniors. This is an essential step to help you prepare for first round interviews and Super Days.

Interviews are available from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in 1 hour increments. Interviews will take place at the Loeb Center and will consist of 30- 40 minutes of fit/behavior + technical finance questions followed by a feedback session.

Spaces are limited. RSVP on Handshake and complete the survey upon registration, which will ask you to pick a first and second time slot and the type of interview focus (investment banking or sales & trading/markets/buy side).

You will receive a confirmation for your time slot by April 26. You should plan to participate as if this is a real interview (dress, preparation, resumes in hand, arrive early etc).
