Our unique case interview preparation approach

Our unique case interview preparation approach Hey, it’s Kris Safarova. And this is Fridays with Firmsconsulting! In the previous episode we discussed 3 foundational skills you need before you should start learning full cases. If you missed it, go and check it out RIGHT NOW as you need those insights to fully benefit from this episode. In this episode we will explain the general case interview preparation sequence you need to follow AFTER you have mastered the 3 foundational skills. And this is based on the 509 clients we have placed into McKinsey, BCG and Bain, which is a 68.9% success rate, the highest in the industry.

By asking careful questions about every part of the resume, and we mean every part, not only can we write the resume to build the profile we want to create of the candidate, but we can also understand how the candidate thinks, explains business issues and sees herself/himself. This process allows us to truly understand the candidate versus the simplified, and usually poorly portrayed, information on an A4 sheet of paper. Resume rewriting takes a lot of time, at least 2 to 3 weeks. It is vital that all ambiguous, subjective, technical, jargon and/or industry driven terms are removed. We want English. Moreover, each bullet must be about a single accomplishment and additional data must reflect achievements as well. We will provide substantial edit requests in each session and it is up to the candidate to go back, remove the existing bullet and create a new bullet to address the concerns we have raised.
