Junior Specialist in the Operations Excellence Program in Munich (participated in "Tune your Career 2017")

“I have always been interested in consulting, however, as an engineer I felt a bit skeptical about entering the consultancy cosmos. Then curiosity won out and I applied for Tune your Career and never regretted it since. The people that attended the event were amazing – the consultants representing McKinsey as well as the attendees, with many of whom I'm still in contact.”

"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."
