BCG Interview Tips
Impress in your BCG interview by homing in on the 2 qualities that BCG most values: an ability to remain structured throughout the case, and excellent communication skills.
Prioritize your structuring and out-loud communication of your process throughout the case, the latter being especially important in virtual case interviews.
In addition, identify 1-2 gap areas (weaknesses), and make a plan to strengthen those areas.
