Senior Consultant Interview

The process took a day - interviewed at FTI Consulting in January 2010.

I would have liked to have more time with the interviewees and would also have liked the opportunity to show my skills and how they would've crossed over. Interview was very imformal and I never knew where I stood or what I did wrong.
