How to Apply

We are searching for people who have an unusual blend of passion, dedication and energy, with high aspirations, driving to excel at McKinsey.

What we look for

We recruit exceptional people from all academic backgrounds and nationalities. We look for candidates with excellent academic records, strong analytical skills, and a keen interest in learning.

McKinsey consultants excel in four main areas:

Problem solving. We help leaders solve their toughest and most urgent problems. We have strong intellectual abilities and a practical sense of what works in complex organizations.

Achievement. We strive to make a distinctive and lasting impact for our clients. This requires tremendous energy, determination, and judgment, particularly when working with multiple stakeholders under tight deadlines.

Communication. We work closely with a wide range of people within the context of their daily jobs. This calls for strong communication skills—particularly when addressing conflicting points of view. We are adept at building trusting relationships with clients to enlist their participation and support.

Leadership. Leading people and fostering productive teamwork are critical to success here. Our leadership skills bring people together to drive positive change within organizations.

Step 1: Apply online

The first step to becoming a consultant at McKinsey Angola is to prepare your application. It should include the following:

  • A letter explaining why you are interested in consulting, and McKinsey Angola in particular
  • Your curriculum vitae, covering your academic career, internships, professional experience, stays abroad, extracurricular activities, and hobbies

We accept applications for consulting positions all year round.

Step 2: Problem-solving test

The documentation you send will allow us to decide how to go about your process. As a first step, you will be invited to take a test and to participate in a set of individual interviews with various consultants representing a broad and diversified experience.

The purpose of this test is to assess the specific problem-solving skills that we consider key to a successful career at McKinsey. The test, which takes about 75 minutes, does not require a specific academic or professional background. The use of calculators or computers during the test is not allowed.

Step 3: The interview process

The goal of the interviewing process, during which you will meet some of our consultants, is twofold:

  1. McKinsey will learn more about your skills and experiences, so we can identify the viability of pursuing a professional career with us.
  2. you will know exactly what we do and who we are, which will allow you to make an educated decision on whether to pursue a professional career with us.

In each interview, we will ask you to solve a case study. In the end of the interviewing process, you will receive feedback from the interviewers and information on the next steps.

Throughout the interviews, we will look forward to assessing the following skills:

  • Problem analysis and structuring
  • Number crunching
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Leadership
  • Team spirit
  • Proactive attitude and commitment
  • Communication
  • Creativity
