    Interview Details

    I applied through the school's career service and got an on-campus first-round interview. Purely behavioral, pretty standard interview. Interview questions are like why consulting, why PwC, where do you see yourself in 5 years, and what specific consulting division you want to work in. So make sure that you research the company well and have a concrete career plan with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • What has been a time that you persuaded a group. What has been a time that you failed.   Answer Question
