Case Interview Prep Program

Once only used in interviews for consulting, internal change management and strategy roles, case interviewing is now being adopted for use by many large organizations (e.g. Telus, Best Buy, Amazon, City of Burnaby) as a part of their interview process for roles that involve analysis, problem identification and solution presentation.

Working through a case interview gives recruiters a chance to see your personality and problem-solving skills in action. A strong performance is critical to setting you apart from the competition!

The Case Interview Prep Program provides you with a framework and practical experience to effectively structure and communicate your thoughts during a case interview. You will learn how to approach different cases, learn different case structures.
