It was a hard video interview where you only had 2 minutes to come up with your conclusion for a case study. Without practice, it would be very hard to do this correctly.

I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Amsterdam)

Interview

First round consists of two consecutive interviews. The first with a more senior consultant, the second with a junior. The senior seemed interested in my experiences, which made for a nice conversation. The junior asked very standard questions and did not follow up on any of my answers, due to which it was very hard to have a conversation and get comfortable.

Interview Questions
  • Can you give an example of a situation in which you had to deal with ambiguity?
