Interview technique

 
#1 Interview technique

Catriona Hamilton

I have a first interview coming up for a strategy consultancy. I have not interviewed for this sector before, but have been told they will be assessing cultural fit and basic skills. Make sense, but can anyone give me any pointers. I have looked at their website but don't know anyone currently working there. I don't have time for a trial run and don't want to balls this up.

info

It would be helpful if you could tell us which firm. First round interviews are mainly about being yourself and not making any silly mistakes - be confident but not over-confident, think before you speak but not for too long. If you look on the McKinsey/BCG/Bain type sites, there are several case practice scenarios online that you can work through - this will give you an idea of the kind of thing they ask. Typically you'd get half the interview talking about what's on your CV, the other half on a case study (e.g. a US airline wants to open some routes within Europe - where would you advise them to fly?) or a market sizing exercise (e.g. what's the size of the UK bottled water market?). There is no "right" answer - it's about showing logical thought processes and being able to 'sense-check' your answer, e.g. £150,000 for the second question is clearly wrong. Hope that helps.
