                        Interview Experience
                        I just had 1 interview. The interviewer first asked me why consulting, which I was prepared for. Then, he gave me a simple case problem. I approached the case fairly well and proposed some solutions, but he was still looking expectantly at me as if I had missed something very obvious. Then, he told me that my analysis of the case was very interesting and he would like to keep me in the process for the time being.

                        But I wasn’t selected for the next round.
