7:30 AM - 9:00 AM Mastering the Case Job Interview

Particularly popular in management consulting and investment banking, the case interview method has been adopted by other types of firms to assess a candidate “in action.”  You are introduced to a business dilemma facing a company. You are then asked to analyze the situation, identify key business issues, and discuss how you would address the problems involved.

Case interviews are designed to assess that are important to the workplace:  quantitative skills, analytical skills, problem-solving ability, communications skills, creativity, flexibility, the ability to think quickly under pressure, listening skills, business acumen, keen insight, interpersonal skills, the ability to synthesize findings, professional demeanor, and powers of persuasion.

 This workshop will introduce participants to the unique skills and approach required to be successful in case interviews.  Topics covered will include:

  • Why case interviews are used
  • Types of questions to expect
  • Role and responsibilities of the interviewee
  • Case interview in four distinct stages
  • Select frameworks for analysis (Profitability Framework, Business Analysis Framework)
  • Live case analysis
  • Resources and practice

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Identity Crisis
PAO's spring Pioneer Series Production occurs each year, and is aimed at identifying and addressing relevant social, cultural and societal issues in the current day.  This year's production, "Identity Crisis," is a devised piece that will focus on the important topics of race, ethnicity, gender, religion and sexuality.

The show will take a critical look at these topics and the systemic stereotypes and oppression that result in context.  We also hope to bring a bit of humor to the conversation and make it feel more approachable.  The show will prove to be an important look into the topics that sit at the forefront of today's news, culture, and priorities.

Tickets will be available the week before the production, and can be picked up in the PAO (D409) free of charge.  This show will be on February 18-19 & 20 at 7:30pm in the C. Walsh Theatre.
