“I didn’t know that McKinsey did operations until I learned about this event. I applied to find out what McKinsey’s Operations Practice really was about.

The event exceeded all my expectation - from the friendly consultants, interesting workshops, challenging racing and all the incredible participants.

I left the event with the feeling that this is exactly the kind of work I want to do and the people I want to work with.”

"I often meet very young and talented professionals who are passionate about creating impact, but only very few know the opportunities McKinsey’s Operations Practice offers. The Tune your Career event is a fantastic chance to discover what we actually do in the Operations Practice and how we turbocharge the effectiveness of our clients."
