McKinsey Interview Question: My question revolves around the differences between the two rounds in the McKinsey interview process.  I’ve heard mixed stories on this and am hoping for a clear answer.  My first rounds were very structured and the interviewer was primarily driving the case by asking a set of 5-6 specific questions per case.

Email: I have a McKinsey final round interview in a few days and apparently, in addition to partner cases, I’ll also have a “leadership case” to solve. Here is the description I received: “It is designed to give you a greater insight into the interpersonal aspects of our work, and to help us gain an [...]

McKinsey APD CV Question: I’ve struggled with how to edit my academic CV into a more digestible format. As you interviewed APD candidates, perhaps you have some guidance here. I’m of course interested in any rules of thumb on presenting the CV in general (i.e., do you recommend summary statement?). My Response: I did not [...]

My Response: Unfortunately, I was never really involved in [...]

But when I was a Business Analyst, while I was promoted to Associate, my colleagues went to the following places: 60% went to Harvard or Stanford for an [...]

Question: What is the McKinsey First Round Interview like? My Response: The purpose of the McKinsey first round is pretty simple. All we’re trying to do as an interviewer is answer two questions: 1) Do you think like a consultant? 2) Are you client safe? Let me start with one little pet peeve of mine. [...]

Question: [My Reply in Brackets Following Each Question] 1. Is it a plus to have a summer internship with another consulting firm at CV (level of ATK, Monitor, etc.) during full-time recruiting with McKinsey? Will it help an applicant to differentiate from other candidates? Will interviewer try to find out whether this internship resulted in [...]
