I just got invited with less than 2 days notice to an interview at a small consultancy firm (they're not even on glassdoor or anything) for a 6 month internship.
I'm a bit stressed about it and not sure if I'm going to attend since I'm working full time and have a 3 hour round commute, as well as tutoring tomorrow evening and preparing for online tests and applications for much bigger consultancy firms. I know short notice is not unreasonable, but at least for bigger firms I have an idea of when their interviews will be, know it will be after the tests etc.
1) Do you think it's worth attending, even though I won't be able to prepare, and it might take time from my other applications (and I will also have to take time off work at late notice)?
2) The interview is said to be 'competency based' - does that mean I don't have to prepare with industry-specific research? I can handle this at least since I have prepared competencies for previous job applications.
The things encouraging me to attend are that I'll get interview experience, will have something after my next internship at least, I'm interested in their company, and it might turn into a job (?).
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
