Basically, the goal when answering these questions is to show the interviewers your critical thinking and problem-solving skills and how suitable you are for the job.
Behavioral questions might be like:
• Why consulting? / Why company XX? / Why are you the perfect fit for this position?
• Describe a time when you disagreed with a team member
• Tell me about your biggest mistake at the workplace
• Name three improvements you made in your most recent position
• Entrepreneurial drive
You can find other questions online; just pick some of them and start answering them in a way that makes sense:
• Keep it short (1.5 minutes max)
• Use storytelling techniques (Structure your speech!)
• Try to get the interviewer to participate, e.g., while telling about your experience in place XX, ask them whether he has been there
The more questions you practice, the easier it becomes for you to come up with a friendly and suitable answer.
Hope it was helpful,
Hi Vlad -- thanks for that excellent answer. Quick question w.r.t. the three McKinsey-specific topics. Sometimes the 'Achievement' element is labelled as 'Drive' instead (c.f. the website). Is this to be understood as a question addressing your pursuit of a specific goal, incl. your motivation to act and the challenges you overcame in the process? Thank you for your help! Best, -L.
