I am looking to hire a mid level associate for my team. How can I conduct an effective interview to find someone who be committed to our work? Interviews are so superficial.

The best feedback is connections within the firm that the associate is applying from. This is obviously super tricky with confidentiality issues all around, but if you can get that information, it’s golden. Or connections with a recent prior employer.

Use a recruiter? Ask your current team if they know anyone looking.

Effective interview was what you asked about. For litigation, I always want writing samples before the interview. I ask them about that matter the writing sample was for. For example, I ask them about the arguments they made and why.

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
