The #aplaceforyou event in Thun was a great opportunity to connect with consultants and participants on a very personal level. Besides learning about McKinsey’s work, we had great conversations about countless non-business-related topics in a relaxed atmosphere. The workshop gave me the courage and confidence that I needed to pursue a career at McKinsey. I can’t wait to start my internship and join the team in Zurich!

Participating in one of the case studies at the #aplaceforyou event, allowed me to learn more about the fascinating work that awaits me as an Associate at McKinsey. It also gave me the opportunity to engage with many highly motivated women from diverse backgrounds.
