Hi there!

I am currently preparing for an interview for a recuriting-position (HR) at McKinsey. They told me that I have to solve some case studies related to recruiting-tasks/-topics. Has anyone done such cases before or knows where to find them? Thanks for any hints ;-)

Best regards, Nikola

Hi,

McKinsey people like to test problem-solving. You may have questions like:

  • If your time to fill a position is typically 75 days, and the hiring manager says they need it filled in 40 days, what would you do?
  • Discuss how you would handle finding a very difficult candidate

The main rule is to provide a structured approach to what you will do. It will be useful for you to go through prep lounge resources to get the basic understanding of structured problem-solving.
