Hi Anonymous,

According to MBB internal rules, no interview coaching of candidates is allowed (both commercial and non-commercial activities), apart from the official mentoring scheme that firms provide.

However, you can try to develop your network and reach out to some consultants on an informal way - might not be allowed officially, but I know that some people do it nevertheless (definitely not recommended from consultant's side - rules are strict and enforced - but that's not of your primary concern at the moment).

Hope that helps - if so, please be so kind and give it a thumbs-up with the green upvote button below!

Hi there,

Unfortunately you cannot (or should not) find anyone currently working for MBB (or any other consulting firm).

This is against company practice.

I would also be wary of anyone promising you referrals/interviews to companies!

While you can reach out via your network, current employees at MBB are forbidden from coaching potential candidates

Hello,

You can not find them, at least not on webiste like preplounge, since it's forbidden to coach someone while you are a consultant.
I'm curious: why would you like to work with someone that is currently a consultant? Here is full of fresh former consultants that can give you the same insights.

Best,
Luca

Hello!

I would say almost impossible, since it would not be very compliant to be working in MBB and coaching at the same time.

However, if you want to connect with consultants who are also doing the interviews, that is easy: from Associate onwards, almsot all do.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara
