Connect with McKinsey 2023

At McKinsey, we tackle our clients’ hardest, most important challenges across diverse sectors and industries. To accomplish this, we need talented people like you to join us.

Our Connect with McKinsey program helps students across North America in undergraduate and non-MBA master’s programs create early connections with our colleagues and learn more about our recruiting process for full time and internship roles starting in 2023. Being part of Connect with McKinsey will allow us to better understand your background and the locations, practices, and type of work you are most interested in while you are still on campus.

Connect with McKinsey participants will receive invitations to information sessions and newsletters on topics such as what it’s like to join our firm, our commitment to work that matters, and how to prepare for interviews.

We are no longer accepting Connect with McKinsey submissions for this recruiting year, but please continue to use the resources on this page to learn more about McKinsey, prepare for interviews, and explore upcoming opportunities and deadlines.
