What We are Looking for
McKinsey consultants excel in four main areas. Candidates must demonstrate capability in the following areas:
Problem Solving: McKinsey consultants help clients solve tough problems in their businesses and implement the solutions. This not only requires outstanding intellectual abilities and rigor, but also a good, practical sense of what works and does not work in complex organizations.
Achieving: Our consultants constantly strive to deliver distinctive client service. To achieve this while handling multiple stakeholders and often tight deadlines requires outstanding energy, determination, and judgment.
Personal Impact: McKinsey consultants work with a wide range of individuals in their day-to-day jobs. Developing and implementing sound recommendations requires the involvement and support of these individuals. Skills in interacting with people in sometimes tough situations are critical to driving distinctive client impact.
Leadership: Leading people and fostering effective teamwork are key to success both within McKinsey and with our clients. McKinsey consultants need outstanding leadership skills in order drive positive change in complex organizations.
We are accomplished and well rounded, with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We’re also fun to work with. Our clients and colleagues value our unique mix of talent, skill, and character.
