In the inaugural episode of the CaseInterview.com Podcast, Victor responds to questions from a top 10 MBA student going through the consulting recruiting process. Questions that Victor answers in this episode:
Is it preferable to come up with a MECE issue tree that is as broad as possible, or more narrow?
When an interviewer hands me an exhibit, should I request up to a minute to structure my thoughts and then come up with the insights, or should I think out loud and start talking as soon as I look at the exhibit?
Other than the fact that McKinsey uses an interviewer-led interview (and the other firms do not), are there any other material differences between McKinsey, Bain, and BCG as far as the actual interview dynamics?
