Readers will notice that the posting rate here at MC has slowed a bit recently. Have been working on several related projects (the Consulting Bible among them) and will be excited to share with everyone soon! Until then take a look at the case interview reads we’ve collected from the consulting blogosphere.
Later today, I’ll post about “How management consultants assess interviews”. For now, here are some quality reads/resources from the consulting blogosphere:
- Considering a career in consulting? Avoid these 5 stupid mistakes – from Ramit’s blog. A few factual errors but points well made
- Jack Bauer’s Guide to Investment Banking Success – from the Inquisitor’s blog, despite the title, much of the advice applies to consulting as well (especially #2, 3, 6, 7, and 9)
- Plane Etiquette Refresher – from the Crazy Consultant blog
- Booz & Co enters India – no surprise here. Even in times of overall hiring downturns, specific regions are expanding quickly, especially strategy consulting in India
Finally, I’ve been recommending this site to interview prep clients. It’s written by a former McKinsey consultant, with great FAQs and videos on how to approach and conquer case studies.
Thanks for reading! If you’re new, here are some recommended posts: The Consulting Industry 101; Investment Banking vs Management Consulting; Day in the life of a Management Consultant; Overview of the recruiting process.
