I have a call scheduled with a Partner who is working in McKinsey for more than 11 years.
1) What should be my approach as I want him to refer me. Obviously, I will not directly ask for a referral. I will build a conversation around digital and analytics as he is specialised in that and then I will move forward to other topics. Could you please suggest me what questions should I ask or what should be my approach?
2) I do not want to work in the office in which he is working. I would like to apply in other locations such as UK, Canada, Singapore etc. Will he refer me knowing that I would like to apply in different location, if yes what impact does it have on the office I would like to join.
Looking forward to your advice.
