Management consulting manager interview questions shared by candidates
Questions asking me to relate my previous non-consulting work experience to the skills and experience that consultants require.
I think the key here is to get at the core skills sets and ignore the contextual differences. Consultants are analyzing data, solving problems and selling solutions to internal and external teams. There are a lot of jobs that require these skills so give examples of consultative sales, team leadership or other responsibilities you've had that developed these skills.
Do you know 'So-and-so' and 'Such-and-such'. One was a former co-worker that used to take credit for my work and the second was a former supervisor that gave me trouble for being gay (like sending me bible sermons on how to live properly and do chapter reports on christian self-help books).
There was a business case, but it was a breeze. Seemed like the interviewer saw the case the first time, as well. Later as I was working in the firm, I realized the interviews are additional chore for the Senior Managers and that is a time of the week that is the fun part. They have a packet to prepare, but most just fling it on the site
