What do a killer networking email, punchy elevator pitch, and great questions have in common?
In short: you just got yourself a referral to an interview.
The knight tells Indiana Jones in The Last Crusade, “choose wisely.” Every applicant can choose – apply for consulting/strategy/analytics roles via a blind online application, or apply through networking. Which will you choose?
Top applicants – or more accurately, applicants who are perceived as being top applicants – apply via personal connections they have or build. In our Networking Intensive, we’ll walk you through 3 facets to secure a referral: a catchy networking email, structured informational interview plan, and compelling elevator pitch.
Opportunities are everywhere – let’s go!
If you can’t get the interview, what is the point of focusing on interview prep, salary negotiation, or anything else? Over 3 hours in 1 power-packed day, join our expert team for a deep-dive into the 3 areas that make a difference in your job search.
In just 1 day, you’ll walk away with tangible assets to transform your recruiting experience: a ready-to-go networking email, and dialed-in elevator pitch. A recording is available if you can’t join us live.
Your instructors are Stephanie Knight (ex-McKinsey Engagement Manager) and Namaan Mian (Management Consulted COO). Combined, the MC Team has decades of experience helping thousands of candidates land interviews – and jobs – at firms including McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Goldman Sachs, and more.
I watched several videos regarding networking and learned a ton. In fact, I talked to a partner at ZS associate yesterday and applied the stuff I learned from those videos. The next thing I know my resume was forwarded to ZS's head of recruiting for the east coast and I was recommended for an interview!
Don't have the right network? Not chummy with a partner at a top firm? That's no excuse. Together, we'll craft a cold networking email you can use to reach out to the right people at the right level inside of your target organizations.
Once we craft the email together, our team will review your individual email to ensure your email highlights your individual strengths. When our clients send the email we help them write, they have a 70%+ response rate.
If you send the networking email we build, people will write you back! The next step is a phone call - an informational interview. This conversation gives you an insider's look at the company, and drives to a referral. We'll build a call agenda and suggest right questions to ask. This isn't the first of many conversations - you get one chance to make a first impression.
During this module, you'll prepare 3 questions that are PSP (positive, specific, and personal).
How do you make a good first impression in the informational interview? If you're thinking Elevator Pitch - you're right. Together, we'll build a 60-second Elevator Pitch that contains the 4 pieces of information your contact needs to know.
Get this 60-seconds right with both content and delivery, and you set the rest of your informational interview up for success. Get it wrong, and well - do we really have to say?
This has by far been the clearest and most informative collection of instructions on the whole ‘getting into consulting’ process. Thanks so much for all the great work you guys are doing!
