Mckinsey junior research analyst

Anonymous A asked on Oct 04, 2017 - 3 answers

Goodmorning everyone,

I need your help!

I have a question regarding Mckinsey for everyone who applied as a junior research analyst. Apart from case interviews and PEI, did you have also some technical interviews? What were they about?

In particular given the JD mentioning an advanced use of M.Office , you have been asked questions about specific Excel/Power Point tools.

Thank you in advance for sharing your precious experience, that would be incredibly kind

Hi!

You will have 3-4 standard case interviews (expect cases in your industry as well) with FIT and some industry-specific questions. You should know:

  • Latest trends in your field
  • Key analytics instruments and examples of how you applied these tool in your past
  • Applicability to different industries

I think the best way to prepare is to find the relevant technical articles and knowledge nuggets on McKinsey official site - they have plenty of them.

Best!

in North America research analysts are Not given case interviews. Only industry specific interviews. At least this was in 2017 from talks with two friends who are now in the south offices.
