Consulting is a pretty rewarding profession, but it’s also not easy to get into at the top level. For all you future consultants out there, there is one critical question you have to decide on. What form of preparation for your case interview will you take? There is a big difference between doing the preparation all by yourself, and doing it with some help. And if you’re doing it with help, there’s the choice of partnering with a friend or an associate, or a hired professional. Then there’s the matter of organizing your approach to it, working on your case interview examples, as well as your fit interview questions and communication skills. All in all, preparation for the consulting business should be taken very seriously and systematically if you want to succeed in this branch.
