A framework I find that works well is the 'Situation, Complication and Resolution (SCR)' framework

Situation - explain what the context in one or two sentences

Complication - the part of the story that explains the issues you faced (or the reason you needed to do what you did)

Resolution - How did you act to resolve the issue and what was the end outcome

Hope this helps,

Hi,

Here are some structures:

Tell me about yourself / walk me through your resume

  1. Start with a 1 sentence summary of your background, why you are relevant for McKinsey and what's your unique selling point
  2. Talk about 3-4 of your roles (can be professional, education, extracurricular), 3 sentences each. The more experienced you are the more you should speak about professional roles. It can be also the distinct roles within the same organization. Typical structure: 1) What was the company 2) What you were responsible for 3) Greatest achievement in that role, that will stay in the memory of the interviewer (E.g. While working at Adidas supply chain I was personally responsible for the delivery of soccer balls to the Worldcup in Africa)
  3. The main reason why consulting (or McKinsey if you were a consultant before) is the next logical career step for you

Why consulting / company

  • Provide the three reason in a structured manner: First of all... Secondly... Finally...

Stories

  1. Start with a one-sentence summary of the story
  2. In Situation, you should briefly provide the context, usually in 1 or 2 sentences
  3. The problem usually includes 2 or 3 sentences describing the problem and your objective.
  4. Then you provide a list of specific actions you took to achieve the goal. It should take 1 or 2 sentences per action (Usually 3-4 actions). Note that the interviewer can stop you any minute and ask for more details.
  5. The results part should have 1 or 2 sentences describing the outcomes. This part is finalizing your story - make sure it can impress the interviewer and stay in the memory.

Best!
