Case Interview Frameworks

Over the last ten years, the concept of a personal brand has become a part of career management vocabulary. This trend has coincided with the rise of social and web media - blogs, YouTube, Instagram, and the like.

Question: I'm really hoping you reply to this email if you get the time. I have final round interviews with Roland Berger on Saturday morning. I've done a couple of interviews so far and apparently they went well. I watched all your videos and they have been extremely helpful. I have a question though: when [...]

Question: I purchased LOMS about ten days ago and have listened to it twice so far. I am trying to go over the seven times mantra, hopefully before the first round. As far as identifying my weak spots, I feel it's with the "qualitative" cases, something that you mention is a common issue with people [...]

Question: Thank you for all the great material you provide. It really helps me understand what a case interview is and how to tackle a case. I am still far from mastering the frameworks, but I am getting more and more confident. I have specific questions that I found during the study process and look [...]

Question: Here's a question that may be on a lot of people's minds but which I haven't seen addressed on your site or in the daily e-mails: If you recognize a flaw or a gap in your approach or framework just after the case interview is over, is there any value in addressing this in [...]

Question: I have a question about working through case interview frameworks. In the Signs example case from the Look Over My Shoulder® recordings, I noticed that the first two candidates did not look at the cost side of the profit tree. When starting with a profit tree, should we examine both branches before moving to [...]
