“The most meaningful thing for me during WomEngineering was meeting so many women who were inspiring, passionate, and fun. I’ve also kept in touch with many of the participants! The event is exciting and has a high-energy environment that really engages you. I recommend applying if you are undecided if the consulting life is for you. We gained insights into life at McKinsey from current consultants who were honest, approachable, and super nice. We kept in touch and one of the consultants is now my coach within the firm!”

Former intern and future Junior Specialist in McKinsey’s Operations Excellence Program, Hamburg

“Before I joined WomEngineering, I was unsure if I could become passionate about being a consultant; consultancy sounded somewhat impractical to me. Especially since I studied engineering, I never thought that McKinsey would suit me better than a manufacturing firm. WomEngineering cleared up any misconceptions. It had a very casual atmosphere, and I learned that McKinsey has so much more to offer than I thought: getting insights into so many different industries, working on challenging projects, and always having the big picture in mind. All the talented women inspired me to attend a three-month internship in the Operations Practice. I worked hand in hand with our client and got to know what life is really like as a consultant, which is way more hands-on than I expected. When I received a full-time contract, I was so excited to rejoin McKinsey after my studies to develop my talents and to grow further by tackling challenging tasks.”
