Read Stephania’s experience of being part of #explore before joining McKinsey

“#explore opened my eyes to McKinsey’s Operations Practice and the multitude of the sectors and topics it covered, ranging from global energy and materials, advanced industries, digital manufacturing, to product development and supply chain. It was a unique opportunity to attend inspiring webinars, get in contact with senior consultants, and be constantly updated on McKinsey events.”
