In an earlier post we looked at how to find case study articles from a variety of resources. But did you know that case studies can also be used in job interviews?
Case interviews are employed as a technique for testing skills and abilities in certain situations that are pertinent to a particular job or career. They are most often used in consulting.
We have a number of texts available in MIRC which explain how these work and how best to prepare for them. The most popular of these are:
- Crack the Case System: Complete Case Interview Prep by Ohrvall
- Ace your Case: Consulting Interviews by Wetfeet
- Case in Point: Complete Case Interview Preparation by Cosentino
There are also guides to case interviews available via Vault Career Intelligence. See our post on Vault here for more information.
For expert advice on interview techniques, contact the Career Development Service. For further information on researching careers in MIRC, please see our earlier post, Researching Careers and Internships using MIRC resources.
