Resume Shortlist Case Study Interview HR Interview FIT TEST
There are no tests for consultancies so make your resume very different and awesome.
Have a look at resumes of seniors who got shortlisted or placed in consultancies so as to get an idea of how to prepare your resumes.
Case Study Interview
There will be definitely one case study interview for a consultancy.
I would suggest start preparing from the start of the final year.Prepare in groups and practice regularly.I referred Victor Cheng's videos for studying case studies.
- Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
- Question 2: Tell me about your weaknesses.
- Question 3: Tell me about your strengths.
Only basic HR questions were asked.They just wanted to check if you are good fit for the company.
In tell me about yourself questions, you can tell about your other soft points which you couldn't mention in your resume.Go to company's website and see what type of consultants they are actually looking for and prepare your HR questions accordingly.Make sure you are not taking more than 2 minutes to answer!
They see if you can work long hours and travel on weekends.They also ask your future plans.All the questions are direct and the interview hardly takes 5 minutes.
Go through company's website and understand what they expect from you.
Prepare well in advance if you are targeting consultancies.
