Case interview

Stacking your skills up against a real business challenge

If you're a candidate for Deloitte Consulting LLP, you'll be asked to demonstrate your problem-solving skills, your analytical ability, as well as your strategic and logical thinking. These case interviews can also help us assess your common sense, creativity, and comfort with ambiguity. At the same time, you'll gain insight into our approach because these cases represent real client projects.

Why case interview?

Cases can help us assess a candidate across multiple dimensions, and your answers should project clear thinking, practical judgment, and a professional demeanor.

What we look for and how you should prepare?

Even if you could not provide the "right" answer, you should clearly convey your logic and thought process. Sample case interviews provide examples and mimic an actual case dialogue.

Here are a few pointers that you may find useful while working on the cases and talking about your findings:

  • Ask questions, and then try to connect the dots
  • Develop and articulate a framework and the initial hypothesis that you intend to explore
  • Structure your analysis into a clear, logical story before you start speaking
