A week ago I was recruiting for the consultant role within McKinsey but was unsuccessful at the final round. The partner said I did not meet the problem solving requirements but I had the leadership and interpersonal skills, therefore he offered to refer me to any of the other divisions and do an extra interview there. He also said that moving among the different divisions is possible, however maybe he meant Finata to New ventures for example and not to consulting.
What would you advice me if my ultimate goal is to be a consultant? Is it realistic to try and transfer in an year?
