What do a clear resume, killer 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 4 facets to secure a referral: a killer resume, 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 4 sessions in 1 power-packed week, join our expert team for a deep-dive into the 4 areas that make a difference in your job search.
After 1 week, you’ll walk away with tangible assets to transform your recruiting experience: an updated resume, ready-to-go networking email, and dialed-in elevator pitch. Recordings are available if you can’t join all calls live.
Your instructor is Jenny Rae Le Roux, former Bain consultant and MC Managing Director. 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.
Every time you talk about almost anything I learn something! I think there are so many nuggets, and I was only on one call thus far! So good.
A resume should display transferable skills with the Context of problems you solved, specific Actions you took, and corresponding Results. Session 1 focuses on revamping your resume to be results-focused. After we demonstrate a live resume edit in Session 1, our team will review your resume to ensure your story is told in a clear and compelling way.
Students and mid-career switchers alike - make sure you are outlining your unique value proposition.
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 in Session 2, 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.
After Session 3, our team will review 3 questions you've prepared to ensure your questions 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?
I have applied one of your networking email techniques, and for the first time, I was able to secure a call with a someone senior at MBB.
