Having my first call with a consultant. What should I ask?
So I'm having my first call with a consultant tomorrow. He's a school alumni & works for ancompany. He made the meeting 30 minutes, so I don't think it's going to be appropriate to ask him to case with me. He also told me to send my CV so I got my ready and prepared for any questions based on the CV. So far, these are the questions I'm planning to ask:
Why this region (he works in the middle east) and not Europe (since he's European!)?
What would you do differently if you were recruiting all over again today?
Out of all industries you advised which you liked the best & why and which products/projects did you like working on most?
Is there a specific cases theme this office is focused on during interviews? What sections of the case book (the school book, he had told me to get it) is most important?
How many cases have you prepared before interviewing?
"I heard from one of your colleagues at a campus networking event that you enjoy 100% of your weekends. Describe a good weekend.." (<--- this is cheesy and kinda cringe but I wanna make the conversation "personal" and "fun" and this is the best I can come up with LOL.
I will end the conversation by hinting at talking again, maybe in a month, to do a case. So far these are the questions I have in mind. Any suggestions?
