Hi Anonymous!

A friend of mine was in a similar position some years ago, and what actually worked for him was quite easy at the end of the day.

He was networking heavily to get in touch with both former and active MBB consultants, and he managed that a McKinsey engagement manager internally forwarded his application to HR and he was invited for interviews (for him, this approach only worked for McKinsey, not for BCG or Bain; but I assume that this is just pure chance).

Even though he didn't have much interview experience either, he did get an offer finally.

Hope that helps - if so, please give it a thumbs-up with the upvote button!

Hello!

We would need a little more detail regarding your situation.

  • Are you a new grad or do you have experience?
  • If you do have experience, on what? And how long?
  • Are you targetting MBB in India or somewhere else?

Cheers,

Clara
