Naveen Jindal School of Management (JSOM), Career Management Center - GEICO Rm 12.110
800 W. Campbell Road, Richardson, Texas 75080-3021

10AM: What is consulting and why should you be interested? We'll talk about different consulting careers, what the top firms look for in candidates, and tips on how to prepare your resume and cover letter for a consulting application. 1

1AM: In order to start a consulting career, you need to be great at Case Interviews. These are becoming a common way for companies to evaluate your ability to communicate, solve problems, and think critically. Even industries like Finance and Technology are starting to use these types of interviews in their hiring process. We will introduce the basics including frameworks, strategies, and resources!

12PM: Students will practice a real case interview scenario during this final part. This will be a highly interactive session with students working in a group(s) to review a case and make recommendations. Fundamental knowledge of the case interview process/strategies and frameworks is required to maximize your experience at the workshop.

In order to get the most out of this session, please bring a laptop, notebook, and pen/pencil for notes during the practice question.
