Suis-je fais pour le conseil ?
En quoi consiste le métier de consultant ?
Quels sont les différents types de conseil ?

On behalf of McKinsey&Company we invite to apply for the Next Generation Women Leaders Award 2017.
They are looking for women who who enjoy problem solving and creative thinking, who thrive when working with other people and who actively seek ways to maximize their own potential. If you think that defines you just apply for this fantastic opportunity!
Winners will be awarded:
2,000 Euros (or equivalent in local currency)
Individual mentorship from McKinsey consultants
Guaranteed invite to selected McKinsey events
One of our members, Erica Pezzica, won the award last year and now is a business analyst at Mckinsey in Milan. From TheConsultingSociety we contacted her to encourage our female members to apply:
When I first heard about the Next Generation Women Leaders Award I was attending a workshop organized by TheConsultingSociety@EPFL. I decided to apply more to challenge myself than to actually get it, as I was initially thinking of McKinsey as something far from my engineering world.
I ended up not only winning the Award but I also was invited to attend the interview process and eventually received an offer to join the firm as Business Analyst. I would like to encourage all the engineering girls to apply, as participating might be a turnaround point of life and the chance of discovering that women can thrive in the consulting world.
So now it's your turn: you already have talent, logics and numerics by your side... will you take the challenge?
Application deadline: March 6, 2017.
