What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
CVs should be laid out clearly. Go into detail on your work experience and extra-curriculars, pulling out any skills that you think are relevant to the job. Make sure you know about the company and the job you are applying for and tailor your application accordingly.
Do you have any interview tips?
Consulting interviews will always include a case-study element. Take your time at the start to structure your thoughts and make sure you understand what the question is asking and how you plan to get to the answer before you start writing - remember that interviewers are not trying to catch you out, so listen to what they are saying. It's worth practising these in advance and there are books and websites dedicated to them, as well as examples on the career sections of most company websites.
For CV chats again try to structure your answers and keep them to the point. Having a grasp of big news stories can also be helpful.
