In this capacity, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to top-tier teams, assisting premier organizations across private, public, and social sectors in tackling their most complex challenges.

You’ll collaborate with a multitude of experts, spanning from data scientists and researchers to software and app designers.

Should you express interest in a specific practice, kindly specify your preference in the office/practice selection (combinations are permissible).

To gain deeper insights into our client solutions and your potential role, we encourage you to explore our careers platform.


As a member of our team, you’ll operate within cohorts typically consisting of 3 to 5 consultants, actively participating in all facets of client interactions.

This entails gathering and scrutinizing data, formulating and validating hypotheses, and crafting and delivering recommendations. Furthermore, you’ll have opportunities to present findings to client leadership and collaborate with client team members in implementing recommendations.

Junior Associates receive comprehensive training and ongoing coaching from colleagues, including guidance from a Partner assigned to your local office or practice.

In your initial years, you’ll benefit from up to five weeks of structured training. Additionally, your local office or practice will support you in selecting client projects, aiding in your skill development and network expansion.

While specialization evolves over time at McKinsey, most consultants begin with a broad focus, thus prior industry or functional expertise is not a prerequisite for success. For experienced professionals joining McKinsey, this may entail building upon existing knowledge or delving into entirely new areas of expertise.
