Came back just now from AT Kearney’s PPT and the informal chat with ATK employees after that. On the whole, it was a very useful session. The PPT was done very professionally and we had a fruitful interaction with two of their employees, one of whom was an ISB alum and the other one, an IIMB grad. Both of them provided important pointers w.r.t case interviews and on what ATK tries to look for in a candidate through his resume and from his interviews.
