What most excites you about your new job?

Working with a diverse group of driven and smart people.

Where were you previously?

Manager, Global Capital Markets at Wabtec.

What was your preparation strategy?

IGotAnOffer was a one stop shop that had all the resources that I needed for my prep. I did the "BCG and Bain Case Interview Training Programme" course and then did some mock interviews with coaches. The feedback I received from them, especially Tara, was phenomenal.

What was the hardest part of the whole interview process?

My biggest challenge was lack of time: I had a total of just 3 weeks to prepare.

What advice would you give to other candidates?

Quality of prep and materials is more important than quantity. Be consistent in your studying and once you find a system, stick to it.

What coaches would you recommend working with?
