McKinsey’s commitment to impact aligns with my personal mission to leave meaningful legacies.
What I do
As a digital consultant at McKinsey, I help clients make their key business enabler digital.
My path to McKinsey
I started my career working at product-development companies. Prior to joining McKinsey, I worked on a team that developed a cloud-based mining software to improve operations.
I wanted to work at McKinsey ever since participating in Young Leaders for Indonesia (YLI). McKinsey serves as a knowledge partner on YLI. I quickly realized that McKinsey is not only a place to work, but it is an incubator for social impact. McKinsey’s commitment to impact aligns with my personal mission to leave meaningful legacies.
When I told a senior leader that I wanted to learn more about cutting-edge technology, he connected me with the Digital Labs team, found a project with the exposure I sought, and eventually helped me get certified in this technology. McKinsey has also helped me in unexpected ways. I have improved my written and oral communication skills here. The firm has transformed me from a quiet coder to a more articulate software architect.
A truly global firm
I worked on a project with colleagues representing ten different nationalities from seven McKinsey offices. Our diversity was a clear strength—it drove our team thinking to the next level.
The people at McKinsey
I describe my colleagues as smart and humble. I work with an inspiring tech leader who has spoken at several world-class conferences. Despite his accomplishments and high profile, he is so humble and he always offers his time to help me solve problems.
Advice for applying to McKinsey
