Consulting Interview Preparation
Written Case Interview
The written case interview is a natural extension of the traditional case interview, and several offices use it as part of the consultant and summer associate second-round process.
The written case interview will require you to develop a recommendation based on the challenge described. You will receive the key questions, facts about the case and some time to prepare before you meet with your interviewer.
Your job is to review your client's situation, present a persuasive recommendation that considers the trade-offs of each possible action or choice, and then participate in a rich discussion with your interviewer to determine how your client could best achieve results. It's important to remember that there may be more than one action the client could successfully take.
Many consultant applicants will have a written case interview, but please check the role and office page for more information.
