I've got a first round with RB - has any got any advice? I've got 6 years experience in Retail / FMCG industry-side strategy and marketing, looking to move into strategy consultancy.

Thanks.

Strat wannabe

I did the first round in London.

Read up on case studies and practice doing calculations in your head quickly. I did three completely different ones. One in overall strategy (increasing profits), a tricky market sizing, and one in operations.

Furthermore, make sure to ask the right questions (about company and office culture, projects and what your role would be on them etc.) - ask them even if you know the answer it shows that you think about these things. I had written some down in advance to show that I had actually thought about what it would be like working for them.

They are also looking a lot for personality so make sure you come by as the person they would like to get stuck in an airport with.

I flunked one of the cases and they said that was why I did not get through, they said the other stuff was fine so make sure to demonstrate business understanding. But with your back ground that should work-out ok.

Still the interviews were very down to earth, they are friendly people so relax and enjoy it.

Good luck.
