How to Apply

Interviewing with McKinsey is not just about us getting to know you. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and meet our people.

What we need from you

The first step toward a career at McKinsey Denmark is to prepare your written application. Visit our global Careers site to search and apply for a position. Your application should contain the following attachments:

  • A short cover letter in English that provides us with a clear first impression of who you are, including:
    • your background and what makes you stand out from the crowd
    • your achievement in your studies, working life, and spare time
    • what interests you most about a career in consulting, and where you see the fit between yourself and what we look for in our consultants
  • Your CV
  • Copies of your original grades transcripts from high school onward
  • If possible, one or more references from persons qualified to tell us about your academic performance and your intellectual and personal qualities

As you complete our online application, you will be asked to fill in a few biographical core fields and attach your files. Please collect your documents in no more than two attachments because the online application system allows you to upload only two files.

When to apply

Deadline for submitting your application is the last weekday in every month. You can expect to receive a decision within 2 weeks. We accept applications all year round and many of our applicants send their application 6 to 12 months before they plan to start.

On submission of your application, you will receive an automated acknowledgment e-mail within 48 hours.

If your application is unsuccessful, please note that we will not accept a new application from you, to any office, within a 12-month period.

Application deadline for internships in 2021 is September 27, 2020. Apply here.

What happens next?

Our assessment process consists of a variety of techniques designed to give you a better understanding of our values, culture, and work, such as written tests, case interviews and discussions around your accomplishments. You will receive further details on the process and plenty of tips and materials to help you prepare.
