My first in-person interview! I had an invite pretty early on, but the interview itself took a few weeks to arrange.
Anyways, I met with a ‘0x alum, who joined MBB after graduation and recently left for another company. The meeting was held in a coffeshop downtown.
Alumna was very positive, nice and friendly. Really, my best interview, it was very informal, but I still was asked all the traditional questions:
- Walk me through your resume
- The most challenging project
- Why did you change the jobs
- Why MBA/Why Chicago/Why now
- What are my ST and LT plans (got into great details here)
- How will you contribute
Everything was very convesational, I made a point to show her that I’m very familiar with the school, professors, curriculum and overall reputation.
Actually when I was in Big4 and she in MBB, we worked for the same client, the one that she recently joined, so we shared some memories about some funny specifics working there. She shared her experience with the school, I asked a lot of questions and I think I really clicked with my interviewer. If that’s the type of people Chicago admits, then I’m sold.
Well, now we wait. Fingers crossed.
