McKinsey Director

Many experienced-hires wrote to us about our recent piece on becoming a McKinsey Principal. While they may appear to be the same, becoming a McKinsey Director requires different skills from becoming a McKinsey Principal. This article will unpack those differences using the example below. Let's assume the regional CEO of a major auto company is being interviewed for the position of McKinsey Director in the Automotive & Manufacturing Practice. Auto CEO to McKinsey Director This regional CEO runs a region with an R&D center, manufacturing sites, and a large consumer market. In many countries, regional CEOs simply run a sales organization.

We will primarily focus on McKinsey networking but the information is also applicable to other consulting firms' networking events, like BCG, Bain, Deloitte, PwC, KPMG, etc. The group type of McKinsey networking is one of the most uncomfortable situations during the case interview recruitment process. The general etiquette is not really well known or easily found on the Internet since McKinsey, as well as BCG and other top firms, host and invite only a small number of people. Four types of McKinsey networking events (consulting) First, it's important that you understand what kinds of McKinsey group networking or other consulting firm (e.g. BCG, Bain, Deloitte, etc.) networking sessions you may be attending as part of the case interview recruitment process. There are 4 major types. The first two are where you will not receive a personal invite. Let's assume that you belong to a major university like the University of…
