Felix is a 27 year old Yale doctoral candidate in the sciences and originally from China. We were very impressed with her communication skills and believed she had a very compelling resume for her age. Felix was selected due to the triad of obstacles she was facing in pursuing a consulting career and was the “impossible candidate” to place. She was targeting the German offices and did not speak the local language, she had no significant past working experience and did not understand any of the major sectors in Germany. All of this, just at the time the German offices had prioritized applicants who were fluent in German!
To see what “good” looks like, Felix is the candidate to watch. Her learning rate, attitude, business judgement, humility and likability factors are all high. Her communication is strong and she even develops new/better ways to solve some cases. Felix would pass a McKinsey or BCG final round case.
Advantages: Enormous work ethic. Pleasant personality. Exceptional business judgement. Quick to understand and use feedback. Takes advice and acts on it quickly.
Opportunities: Chasing a tough office. Lots of “balls in the air” w.r.t to personal, academic and working activities. Should always remember how good a profile she has.
Opportunities: Internalizing and acting on feedback
WHAT IS IT: The Consulting Offer is a groundbreaking case interview training program using REAL participants. All training is done by ex-McKinsey, BCG et al partners using the techniques we developed in our 1-on-1 coaching programs where we have an 80% placement rate. Subscribers can watch video recordings of the candidates being trained for McKinsey, BCG and Bain case interviews. The show is now in its 6th season with all seasons available for streaming.
There is NO other program in the world with real candidates being trained in real time with the results made public. Everything on StrategyTV.com along with our most advanced strategy programs can be found on StrategyTraining.com.
WHAT WE DID: Across 6 seasons, 7 years and counting, we brought together 16 candidates from 12 schools and 8 countries (USA, Morocco, Russia, France, Armenia, China, Canada and India) to train them primarily for US offices. The TCO program runs every year with new participants.

HOW SUCCESSFUL IS TCO: TCO alumni are very successful. In every season we have placed participants in McKinsey, Bain or BCG and we have placed all participants in management consulting when other good firms like Deloitte S&O are included. All MBB-placed TCO participants are still with the firms, and one is a principal having joined as a consultant. Only one participant has left McKinsey to join another firm where she is on a partnership track.
