Prima Intervista Attitudinale con un membro del team HR, poi 2 Business Cases con 2 partner differenti. I casi erano basati su clienti reali dell'azienda, o comunque erano approssimati, non erano scenari fantasiosi come in altre interviste di consulenza. Il mio colloquio era per l'ufficio di Milano.
