Former Summer Business Analyst at McKinsey & Company
almost 2 years ago
I had always been interested in business in high school and college. As I was studying pre-med, I realized I loved the problem solving aspects of my courses and craved for critical thinking-type projects and assignments. As I was helping a friend run through a case interview, I realized consulting might be a good fit since I loved the aspects of what went into problem solving to work through a case. I think if you're interested in the role, try out "cases" and see how you like them. That type of thinking is a large part of the job, and in my experience, how much you enjoy them can be reflective of how you'll like the typical thinking a consultant does.
