Case Interview Workshop

Case interviewing is a critical component of any interview with a professional service firm, plus banks are also increasingly using this interview technique. It pays to practice and to be prepared. View the video of a workshop conducted by Ernst & Young representatives Keyuri Shah, Bea Smith ’09 (Dyson alum), and Aaron Feinberg ’08 (ILR alum).
