Recruiting season for summer consulting positions is wrapping up soon, and I haven't had any luck yet. Had several first rounds and made it to 2nd round of an. I have another final round soon with a 2nd tier firm that I would still love to work for.
I'm trying to figure out how to approach the upcoming final round. Specifically, what's the best way to form a connection with the partners/managers I interview with even when you can tell it's going to take a ton to impress them? Is it better to be laid-back and more bro-ey or should I act more mature and serious? Obviously they're both crucial, but is the 2nd round more about fit or case performance?
