Junior Specialist in the Operations Excellence Program
(participated in WomEngineering 2017)

Attending the WomEngineering event was not only a great experience but also a significant step in my career, as I joined the company only seven months later.

I was surprised and impressed to learn about the variety and depth of topics for engineers in McKinsey’s Operations Practice. The weekend offered the opportunity to talk to female consultants at different stages in their careers in an informal setting. Getting to know the faces behind consulting was very valuable to me as it gave an outlook on possible development paths for “womengineers” within McKinsey.

After the event, I felt very excited about joining the company and started preparing for the application process with the other participants, resulting in an offer to join the Operations Excellence Program, a very attractive program for young professional engineers.

Senior Associate in McKinsey's Operations Practice
(member of the event team at WomEngineering
2017 and 2018)

What I enjoy most about being faculty at the WomEngineering event is meeting outstanding ladies from all over Europe and sharing with them my experience at McKinsey’s Operations Practice. I strongly believe that the right fit is key to any success and that it is all about the people.

WomEngineering is perfect in helping the participants find out whether McKinsey could be right for them – because it is a very personal event and we as faculty always try to give a realistic perspective of what it is like to be a McKinsey consultant. Therefore, besides the more professional program, we have planned a lot of time for questions and individual discussions. I’m always very happy and proud if one of the participants gets the offer and decides to join our firm!

Junior Specialist in the Operations Excellence Program
(participated in WomEngineering 2017)

I was thinking about a career change when the opportunity to join the WomEngineering 2017 event in Kitzbühel came up. Over two days, I learned both what it means to be a McKinsey consultant and what McKinsey’s Operations Excellence Program is about. Everything was discussed in a very open and friendly environment – including the recruitment process, the training program, the projects, and career progression. We also had fun sledging and being treated to delicious meals.

I had a fantastic time and came home very excited about the idea of working for McKinsey. I have since joined the Operations Practice as a Junior Specialist in the London office and have been surrounded by familiar faces from day one.
