Case Interviews

Some employers, particularly those in the consulting industry, use a method of interviewing called "case interviewing." Case interviews are used to assess how well you can dissect a problem, utilize your relational skills, and apply your creativity. Your challenge is to strategize a solution to a problem. Your responses must display your listening skills, analytical skills, interpretive skills, ability to focus on actions and results, presentation and communication skills, and personal attributes.

As case interviewing is a unique style of interviewing that requires an understanding of the technique, many employers will let you know if they have a case-based interviewing process in advance of the interview.
