Looking for native/near-native English speakers for cases (got an offer from McK)

Anonymous A asked on Apr 11, 2019

Hey,

I am looking for native/near-native English speakers with whom I can do cases as an interviewer (I got an offer from McK and had done 50+ cases prior to the interview). English is my second language at around C1 level, but recently I haven't had many opportunities to use it at work/daily life. I can give you cases with comprehensive feedback or we can just talk about the preparation process, business-related topics, etc. I have a strong background in math/statistics/data analysis and would be more than happy to share some experiences.

Funny thing is that all the cases I was given during the interviews were in the local language, thus, except for PST, my English skills were not evaluated. I find it quite strange that a company known for a very difficult interview process with a strong focus on avoiding false positives would just overlook such a critical factor. It is even more strange as neither have I worked nor have I studied abroad, and it was specifically stated in my resume.

Hi! Preparing for McKinsey first round, have done 50+ cases to date and looking to do interviewer-led cases with solid partners :)

Hi,

Happy to do cases with you, especially since you're offering to be the interviewer. My entire education has been in English, so feel that I have quite a strong grasp of the language :)

Let me know!

Best,

Peter
