    Have an upcoming interview?

    Interviewing advice:

    Devin McKinney

    Associate Consultant
    BA in English, Pre-med;
    Bowdoin College

    My best advice for a case interview would be to prep with a friend/classmate. Learning how a case works is rather simple; the most difficult piece is communicating your learnings/insights out loud. Get comfortable with imperfections and mistakes! Also, don’t neglect prep for the behavioral questions; make sure you have a few stories ready to showcase your skills in a team, addressing challenges, etc.

    Lucas Monserrat

    Associate Consultant
    BA in Economics and Mathematics;
    Bowdoin College

    Practice, practice, practice. Prior to any case or behavioral interview, make sure that you have gone through numerous live mock interviews. Reading case prep books and practicing cases on your own, can only get you so far. Going through mock cases and behavioral interviews live will help you build the confidence you will need to speak and think critically while under the pressure of a real interview.

“My advice to candidates would be to read the headlines, listen to podcasts, and keep up to date with the evolving news of pharma/biotech. The life sciences industry is one of the most dynamic (and interesting to follow). By tracking the latest news and technology developments, it will give you a great foundation and head start to our work.”
