Women inside McKinsey

As an ex-McKinsey consultant and recently become women's coach, I can develop your case performance and impact stories specifically from a women's perspective. I was hired by McKinsey after having attended a women's only event with the firm and was a part of the internal informal female empowerment network, granting me access to specific training materials.

Throughout my interview preparation, you can expect detailed feedback on how you perform against what McKinsey is looking for when interviewing female applicants. My sprint program is 7 sessions long (1 women empowerment + 3 cases + 3 personal fit interviews) and has been designed applying principles from women empowerment coaching.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ADDITIONAL VALUE

  • Referrals. My network of current and former consultants worldwide to enable referrals and great networking opportunities.
  • Certified knowledge. Complete Q&A knowledge on consulting, 80+ upvotes on PrepLounge.
  • Company-specific insights. Information on interview processes of McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Simon-Kucher, to give you company-specific insights.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MY PROMISE

My goal is that you succeed, whatever your specific goal in consulting is. 

  • Our sessions will last until all your questions are answered.
  • For last-minute interview preparation request, I will free up some time for you. I will give you my personal number and will be available for you via WhatsApp.
  • I will provide some additional tips and material for you via email until you have actually achieved your goal.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SESSION 6: Women Empowerment Coaching (for women only, can be replaced)

My recruitment and work experience has shown that women very often have difficulties positioning themselves in the best possible way, even though they have an excellent profile.

Therefore, I will show you some simple techniques that you can use to feel better and safer before and during the interview, and on the other hand to be able to show your full potential.

As part of the internal informal McKinsey female empowerment network, I received access to specific training materials that I can share with you.

The last session will be a final round format - therefore with more pressure and time restrictions.

We will cover a full case putting into practice the knowledge of the previous 5 sessions. 

We will go through some of the main personal fit questions.

In the last session, I will give you very detailed feedback to make sure you will succeed.
