The first step to a career at McKinsey Spain is to prepare your application. It should include a letter explaining why you are interested in consulting and McKinsey in particular, as well as your curriculum vitae and a copy of your academic records. Applications in both English and Spanish are welcome. Applicants for McKinsey Spain should be fluent in both English and Spanish.
Depending on the strength of your application, we may invite you to our assessment process. This starts with the McKinsey Problem-Solving Test, which assesses specific problem-solving skills that we consider key to a successful career. The test, which takes about 70 minutes, does not require a specific academic or professional background.
If you pass the test, you will be invited to participate in a series of individual interviews with consultants with diverse backgrounds. This process is organized in two rounds, each consisting of two or three interviews.
The goal of the interview process is twofold:
- McKinsey will learn more about your skills and experience, helping us assess your suitability for a career with us.
- You will gain a detailed picture of our values and way of working, allowing you to make an informed decision on whether to pursue a career with McKinsey.
We want to get to know you and learn about your accomplishments, so we will ask in-depth questions about your past experience in each of the interviews. We will also ask you to work on a case study, which will give us further insight into your problem-solving skills. At the end of each interview round, you will receive feedback from the interviewers and information on the next steps.
We have created a comprehensive set of materials to support you in your preparation, which are available on our global Careers site. You will find further detailed information on the “Interviewing” page, including a problem solving test, videos, and practice case studies.
