Having interviewed many candidates to McKinsey, for 1st or 2nd round, I am very aware of the interviewing process and can make you go through a “close to real” interview experience.
All cases that we will practice are real interview cases, based on my own case experience and tested in live interviews.
When you work with me, you will profit from my extensive experience in life interviews. Together, we will focus on 3 aspects:
- Learning the basics: I will teach you the critical skills you need to develop to crack any case effectively. This ranges from little hacks that make your life easier to the best strategy for combining off-the-shelf frameworks with your own intuition to develop even better-suited frameworks specifically for each case you are confronted with.
- Building on experience (yours and mine): Only with real practice will you develop the confidence that it takes to remain calm in a high-stress situation and solve the case. I will give you feedback based on an evaluation framework similar to the one used at McKinsey to give you a better understanding of what interviewers are looking for. I will be honest and straight forward in my feedback to give you the chance to identify development opportunities and work on them systematically.
- Preparing the most selective part of the interview, the fit: I will help you prepare for the fit part of the recruiting process. Although this seems to be more 'fluffy' than the case part it is usually the most important part and the one candidates are the least prepared for! There are important Do's and Don’ts that you need to be aware of.
