Case interview coaching and training to break into McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, et al.

Case interview coaching and training to break into McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, et al.

Break into McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, et al. by using a structured case interview coaching and training process, learning from ex-partners, and working with ex-MBB coaches. We help aspiring graduates, young professionals, and experienced hires prepare for their job interviews with the world’s major consulting firms. We place a specific focus on preparing for case interviews with McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), and Bain & Company. However, if you are targeting a different firm, please raise it with your coach.

There are a number of very good firms that are, in some ways, better than MBB for their specialization. However, generally, if you are prepared for MBB, you are prepared for interviews with most consulting firms.

The case interview is the hardest interview you will do in your life. And there are a lot of things you don’t know that you don’t know.

The only way for you to know the things you don’t know is to have access to experienced case interview coaching, guidance, and training. It will help you:

– identify and fix your weaknesses
– highlight your strengths
– learn what to say and not to say
– learn what McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, et al. are looking for
– learn how to structure your FIT answers
– learn how to structure your case thinking and answers
– optimize your resume and cover letter
– guide you through the networking process
– guide you through how you should carry yourself at every interaction with your target firms

Within StrategyTraining.com, we have a group of world-class mentors, including some of the most eminent former McKinsey, BCG, Bain, et al. senior partners like Kevin P. Coyne (former McKinsey worldwide strategy practice co-leader) and Bill Matassoni (former McKinsey and BCG senior partner and former McKinsey’s worldwide head of marketing). No other company offers that level of mentorship.

As you may be aware, only ~3% of applicants to consulting firms end up with offers. For the last 12 years, our members and clients enjoyed a much higher chance of success. Up to 80% chance.

In fact, in The Consulting Offer, we record full case interview coaching and training process of taking candidates from being declined at McKinsey or BCG or from not being able to even get an interview invite, all the way to an offer from a candidate’s target firm (McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, et al.). StrategyTraining.com is the ONLY place in the world where you get to see ex-partners coaching real candidates to join McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, et al. Watch the video below to learn more about The Consulting Offer.

While The Consulting Offer and other programs on StrategyTraining.com were more than enough to help thousands of clients to get offers from McKinsey, BCG, Deloitte, Bain, Amazon, Apple, Google, PE firms, etc., some clients felt they needed coaching support as part of their preparation. Working directly with partners is out of the budget for most case interview candidates. Partners also prefer to work with executive coaching clients.

Michael, one of the ex-partners within our team, for example, does not take on new case interview coaching clients anymore to make sure he has time to work with some of our long-term executive-level clients who are way past trying to get into consulting. We were lucky he did case interview coaching for years so we were able to record our in-depth library of training on:

– what partners look for in candidates
– what immediately disqualifies candidates
– how partners view working for top firms after spending their entire career there (behind the scenes)
– how firms like McKinsey operate from inside (the pyramid and how it is supported)
– how partners train candidates to think about business problems and approach cases
– how partners train candidates to think about FIT answers and how to structure those answers
– how partners train candidates to network to get an interview invite

Many of Michael’s former case interview coaching clients leveraged their work with us to get into top firms like McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, Amazon, Google, Apple, major banks, et al. And continue working with us to accelerate their career progression. Here are some of the companies our clients and members joined and excelled at while working with us.

FIRMSconsulting.com and StrategyTraining.com have helped candidates land offers at 300+ organizations, including companies listed below:

Other companies where we helped place candidates include: US Presidents Office, Facebook, Tesla, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, DE Shaw, TPG, Blackstone, Blackrock, Silverlake, to name a few.

However, we are strong believers in creating a structured case interview coaching and training environment for our clients and some candidates do need coaching aspect. Therefore, we also introduced an opportunity to work with an ex-MBB coach.

Here is a profile of one of our coaches: McKinsey ex-engagement manager with 100+ interviews while at McKinsey under his belt. Recently left McKinsey and went into industry to take on a senior industry role. Passionate about helping young people break into consulting.

FAQ

Q: Can I ask someone for help to help select the best package for me?

A: Yes, please email [email protected].

Q: Why do you offer various options?

A: Each candidate has different needs, budgets, and ways they learn best. Therefore, options allow you to select the best-structured study process for you. If you need help with selecting, email [email protected], and we will be happy to assist.

Q: Will this training help me prepare for case interviews outside the U.S.?

A: Yes. In fact, as you will work through The Consulting Offer (TCO) you will notice that some candidates were located or interviewing outside the U.S. For example, Assel, whom we trained in TCO IV and who ended up joining McKinsey, was based in Eastern Europe. Felix (TCO I) was applying to Germany and got a McKinsey offer. Our case interview coach, an ex-McKinsey engagement manager, has extensive experience interviewing outside the U.S.

Q: Does FIRMSconsulting guarantee that I will get an offer from McKinsey or another top consulting firm?

A: Given how competitive this interview process is, no one can give you such a guarantee. We guarantee we’ll show up and do the work required to help you get into the best possible position to succeed in the consulting case interviews.

Q: What is the refund policy?

A: Case interview coaching and training are not refundable. However, there is a huge amount of free resources for you to test that FIRMSconsulting is the right fit. And in terms of your work with a coach, you can start with one session to see if there is a good fit.

Q: I am not a usual candidate. Can you help me maximize my chances of joining a top consulting firm?

A: In addition to typical candidates (MBA, undergraduate, etc.), we also help hundreds of non-traditional candidates (PhD, JD, Postdoc, MD, etc.) each year. This includes advanced degree candidates, experienced hires, and non-target school candidates. In fact, when you work through The Consulting Offer, you will notice us helping candidates get offers from McKinsey, BCG, and Bain that had a very small chance of succeeding. Here are two examples:

  • Alice in TCO II, an aspiring and very bright young lady who was previously declined by McKinsey and BCG, received offers from McKinsey and BCG.
  • Assel from TCO IV received an offer from McKinsey after 5 years maternity leave (and she never previously worked at McKinsey, BCG or Bain).

If you are still not sure if your timeline/personality/language proficiency/background is a good fit for consulting, email [email protected] describing details of your situation, and we will help guide you.
