FIRMSconsulting is unique because we are the only case interview preparation service worldwide to use ex-partners. Recruiters, business analysts, associates and engagement managers do not make the final hiring decision.
They only screen resumes and conduct early case interview rounds. We deliberately pick participants with tougher profiles: You can watch the video recordings and learn alongside them.
While we have the largest library of case interview videos and podcasts, we have even more training programs on strategy. Case interview preparation is like learning math.
One should start with the basics of case interviews before attempting the most difficult case interview problems. We find even very capable clients perform poorly when they start incorrectly.
We would recommend beginning your case interview preparation with the Experienced Hires Case Interview Preparation even if you are not an experienced hire. The program covers the basics very well and all clients report the best results when starting here.
We have trained more case interview participants than the list above and you should choose the additional episodes and solutions you would like to watch after you have completed the recommended seasons and participants above. Since everyone is starting their case interview preparation from a different base of knowledge and skills, you may need more customized preparation advice.
In that case, please read this detailed program guide we offer to help our clients prepare. We teach from first principles. We do not recommend memorizing frameworks and we teach all our clients the ability to develop bespoke frameworks for each case. Our goal is to help you not only receive an offer, but to be a successful consultant whom will go on to have a great career beyond McKinsey or BCG.View Notes - Case Chapter 5, McKinsey from ECON at Erusmus University Rotterdam.
