About me

  • 28 year-old Associate at McKinsey & Company
  • Insead MBA
  • 20+ real interviews with top-tier consulting firms

Case interview

The correct use of frameworks is only one of the key factors to be successful in a case interview. We will practice together through conventional and unconventional cases, also including real life examples from my experience at McKinsey. Key takeaways from our sessions will include:

  • Smart and customised use of frameworks
  • DOs and DON'Ts at each phase of the case (i.e., from opening to final recommendation)
  • Business essentials (both must-have and nice-to-have), especially useful for STEM students with little or no business background
  • Detailed and structured feedback, both during and at the end of the case study

Fit, behavioural and additional questions

In a typical real life interview, 50% of the time is spent on the business case. While this might not be of immediate understanding, the remaining 50% weights just as much for your overall evaluation. In this context, insecure and unstructured answers are primary reasons for rejection. The positive news? Things are much more predictable compared to the business case. We will work together to ensure optimum preparation for:

  • Self introduction
  • Fit questions, based on the specific firms you are applying to
  • Behavioural questions, based on a clear and smart mapping of your past experiences
  • Final questions for the interviewer

CV and cover letter

Consultants are naturally forced to be extremely meticulous about details, which makes them able spot even the slightest inconsistencies in your CV and cover letter in just a few seconds. On the other hand, perfectly written documentation can boost your chances of landing an offer, often times even "compensating" for mistakes you may do during the interview. We will conduct a word-by-word review of these documents together in order to ensure:

  • Clear structure and straight to the point messages
  • Smart selection of experiences that are most relevant to the eyes of a consultant
  • Overall consistence and use of most appropriate wording
