He begins, “About once a month I run across a person who radiates an inner light. These people can be in any walk of life. They seem deeply good. They listen well. They make you feel funny and valued. You often catch them looking …

While completing my MBA, I was recruited to work as a management consultant. I still remember two full days of grueling interviews, assessments, role plays and case studies. Do you have what it takes to be a consultant? Acing the case is the first step! Learn more about the consulting industry and understand why a case interview is an excellent barometer of whether this is the field for you. We are fortunate to have Alfonso Martinez, 2013 graduate and Business Analyst at Accenture sharing his inside tips and strategies for success. Not only did Alfonso ace the case when interviewing at Accenture, but he was also a member of an award winning Fed Challenge Case Competition team! Hope to see you Friday at 10am! http://careeredge.bentley.edu/events/2015/02/20/conquering-the-case-interview/
