In The Consulting Offer watch former McKinsey et al senior partners mentor real candidates into the most elite consulting firms. Across 4 seasons, the program has never failed to place a participant.
Samantha is a 32 year old Yale post-doctoral fellow, originally from China, and an experienced hire. She is determined, hard working and graduated near the top of her class in just about every exam she ever wrote. She had one of the highest technical scores in the screening interviews for this program. Samantha was targeting the North-Eastern USA which was a stretch region for her, but not impossible. Our largest challenge would be to help Samantha with communication problems and her ability to use the feedback.
Samantha had very specific development areas. Her preparation and communication could have been better. Business judgement was also open to strong development. Samantha could have been much better at following feedback. Samantha’s ranking does not reflect her level of effort given that she, along with Felix, was one of the hardest working candidates in the program. She gave it her all.
Advantages: Enormous heart, drive and passion; One of the hardest working candidates in the program. Samantha is eager to learn.
Opportunities: Internalizing and acting on feedback
