Hi,

I am applying for entry positions in MBB for next fall. During the summer I am going to San Francicso to work for an early phase startup. Is this something that I should not be afraid of saying during the personal fit part of the interview, or could it end with them fearing that I am more interested in an entrepreneurship career?

Hi Anonymous,

it is totally fine to mention your summer internship in a startup; however, the interviewer may ask you the following questions:

  1. Why didn’t you apply for consulting for this summer?
  2. Why do you want to join consulting instead of continuing to work in a tech startup?

You should therefore prepare in advance for these questions, explaining in your answers that you are interested in aspects that only consulting could provide (for example, coverage of multiple sectors) and the reasons why you delayed your consulting application.

Hope this helps,

Francesco

McKinsey cases only

of course u should mention it! most consultants appreciate an entrepreneurial side!! you should incorporate the work you do there with the work MBBs do, especially when it comes to tackling revolutionary industries like big data in consulting

Besides being great at case cracking you also need to convince the interviewer that your personality fits into a case team or in the company as a whole
