For Graduate Students, Workshop
2:00 PM 3:30 PM
Graduate Student Center, 211A West Cameron Ave

In recent years, consulting firms have begun to hire more and more advanced professional degree (or APD) candidates. Because of this, many PhD candidates in a variety of fields are becoming interested in this field. This seminar will dive deep into the concept of case interviews, an integral part of any consulting job interview. A thorough introduction to the world of consulting and case interviews will be followed by an integrated case workshop, in which attendees will be asked to put their logic and case-solving skills to the test. Please join us for an informative (and fun!) afternoon learning about consulting interviews. Register at http://tinyurl.com/hra2tnf
