Hi Cloe,

The best way to prepare for McKinsey PEI is PARADE method. The best way I suggest my students is EOfit:

  1. Write down all the stories in a given format (link to format is below)
  2. Use your webcam to record yourself
  3. Watch your videos and find out the weakest parts of them/send them to friends
  4. Improve your stories/presentation based on the comments

NB: Your stories should be interesting and you should be full of enthusiasm while telling them.

I attach the link to a file:

All the best,

Hi Egor, thank you for sharing the resource. Could you maybe update the link? I think the file has been removed. Many thanks. Kind regards, Luisa

Indeed this is one of the risk of over-preparating, and it not only affects FIT but also the Business Case. People who over-prepare end up being rigid and not natural, and losing the "charm" and naturality that one should have in a conversation.

Think of the FIT part of the itnerview as if you were meeting your partner´s parents: you want to impress them, but also be nice, since you don´t want them to think of you as cocky or sharky. It´s the same thing!

Hope it helps!
