By Martin Hartenstein, Fabian Billing, Christian Schawel, Michael Grein

Hat der Bewerber es erst durch die Selektion anhand des Lebenslaufes geschafft, so wird das Abschneiden in den oftmals gefürchteten fallstudienlastigen Bewerbungsgesprächen zum Hauptkriterium für den Vergleich und die Auswahl der Bewerber – vom Praktikanten über den Hochschulabsolventen bis hin zum Beratungseinsteiger mit Berufserfahrung.
