Lots of people profess an interest in consulting but only a few actually spend meaningful time researching and preparing for consulting roles. It’s important to try and network with current and former consultants to see if consulting is a good fit for you. You can also easily find print and video interviews about people’s consulting experience to learn more about the nature of the work and how to prepare for consulting recruitment. This is an interview with a McKinsey business analyst that covered a number of important points that we thought could be helpful for those interested in pursuing consulting, especially at McKinsey & Company. Additionally, we’d like to point you to a good video resource to help explain the case interview process and how to prepare for case interviews.
