What are consulting firms looking for in fit interviews?


“Someone who I want to work with from 8am to 8pm” is how one McKinsey interviewer explained it to me. That means you are:

  • A good communicator
  • An effective hard-worker (note this means you not only put in the sweat, you do it in the right way)
  • A positive, generally likeable person

Fit questions measure where you fall in those 3 areas.
