It was with my customary, perfectly dreadful attitude toward the majority of employers that I happened upon the pages that McKinsey & Company use to support those who are considering applying there. Do take a look.
McKinsey seems to know what they want in their consultants, they believe they know how to find out whether applicants have what they need, and they can even tell applicants how to prepare so that both sides are able to judge one another effectively. Now, obviously few companies can afford to go to these lengths but considering that personnel represent one of the most important, and most problematic aspects, of any enterprise I wonder that employers seem to give so little attention (care?) to recruiting.
