Consultants at McKinsey play an active role in many aspects of client engagements, including fact gathering, analysis, client communications, making recommendations, and implementation. Undergraduates typically join us as business analysts or fellows as an integral part of our client service teams.

Some stay for 2 or 3 years before attending graduate school or gaining further work experience, others stay on and move directly into a post-graduate school role. In the Business Analyst or Fellow role you will collaborate with senior consultants, client managers, and executives on every part of the consulting process, from brainstorming ideas to working side-by-side with clients to implement team recommendations.

You can join McKinsey with or without an alignment to a specific type of work. Generalists are not aligned to any specific function or industry and typically work on a variety of projects. Practice consultants join a functional group (such as digital, marketing and sales, operations, etc.) and dedicate most of their work to this focus.

In a tech role at McKinsey, including Software Engineers, Data Engineers and Data Scientists, you’ll be part of an agile, close-knit team dedicated to helping you and your team perform at your best.  Working with McKinsey’s clients -- some of the world’s most innovative and influential organizations -- you’ll develop our analytics, data, and management products, collaborating with consultants to apply them in our client work.

Affinity Recruiting Office Hours hosted by the McKinsey Black Network and the Hispanic & Latino Network

June 29 – September 21 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm ET
Affinity office hours are an informal opportunity for undergraduate students to ask questions related to McKinsey & Company (e.g., the recruiting process, application deadline, resume guidance, etc.). In addition, these special sessions will be focused on the McKinsey Black Network and the Hispanic & Latino Network. They provide undergraduate students a casual, non-evaluative opportunity to drop in and ask questions about our recruiting process. The chats will be with Erika Love who leads undergraduate recruiting for the McKinsey Black Network and the Hispanic & Latino Network. Attendees may also hear from consultants from our affinity groups. Students who identify as Black, Hispanic/LatinX, and/or Indigenous to the United States are encouraged to attend. Feel free to hop on for a couple minutes to ask a question or stay on for the entire time.
