Embrace the Case Interview walks you through each step on the path to your dream consulting job as described by a former management consultant who conducted over 100 interviews for a top-tier firm. First, we cover how to get the interview including how to be memorable when speaking with firms prior to the interview and how to write a killer resume and cover letter. Second, we cover the behavioral part of the interview. Often overlooked, the behavioral part of the interview covers your personal experiences and is often just as valuable as the case interview. We discuss the traits interviewers are looking for and how to answer their questions in a structured way. Third, we take an in-depth look at the case interview itself. Unlike books that focus on segmenting cases and applying frameworks, you will learn a single, flexible structure that you will apply to any case with deadly effectiveness. In addition to structuring the case, you will learn approaches for the cases' other parts including qualitative questions, quantitative problems, exhibit analysis, and synthesis. Embrace the Case Interview places a strong emphasis on the quality of your learning rather than just doing hundreds of cases. As such, each example case contains an in-depth discussion of the text book answer to help you improve. For more information, please visit embracethecaseinterview.com. Enjoy the book and best of luck in your upcoming interviews!
