I can only speak from personal experience but if a recruiter has already reached out for a call, it will mostly be a conversational interview focused on your past experiences, how you personally made an impact in the scenarios you discuss, and other general fit questions.

like

- your career story (what you’ve done, what you hope to accomplish) - why McKinsey - questions for the recruiter How did you get the call? Would you mind sharing your background?

Tips 🙄

Yeah, the bar is pretty low here for this call in my experience. If they’re interested, it’s because you bring something to the table. Tell your story in a coherent fashion that makes your interest in McK clear, and reiterate the skills and accomplishments that have already gotten you here. Good luck!
