The prospect of working outside the field you’ve prepared for can be unnerving. After all, you’ve invested a lot of time and thought in your career, and doing something else will change both your professional plans and your personal priorities.
As a McKinsey consultant, you will find new ways to use your expertise and problem-solving skills. We value your background and the diverse experiences you’ll bring to our firm.
At the same time, we’ll give you opportunities to learn about different fields, see the world, and advance more rapidly than is possible in many other professions. McKinsey opens doors to opportunities you may never have envisioned, both at the firm and elsewhere.
As you consider what it means to become a consultant, we invite you to explore the many resources available on this Web site. You’ll find a glimpse of life at McKinsey and answers to some of your questions from consultants with backgrounds similar to yours.
