Think today for a better tomorrow
Are you a born leader? Could your ideas help power the world? We’re looking for dynamic, passionate people to develop solutions to the world’s most complex challenges. Join us and make the future your project.
Work with us
We’re looking for bright, curious professionals to strategically lead us into a new era of digitalization. If you’re open to new ideas, and you’re a great team player with an impressive record of academic achievement, we want to hear from you.
Set your future on the right track
Are you entrepreneurial, ambitious and analytical? Do you thrive on challenging the status quo and creating sustainable value? Then you’re the person we’re looking for.
The first step is to tell us about your skills, hobbies and interests, and why you think you’d be a good fit for our team. If your application’s successful, you’ll be invited to an interview where we’ll get to know more about you, and have a lively discussion about life and work at SMC. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply your business and analytical skills within realistic business cases, and to show us your personality.
After each round of interviews, we’ll give you detailed feedback and let you know if you’ve been successful. If you get through to the next stage, you’ll be invited to an introduction day when you’ll connect with other experts in your field, and experience our work and culture firsthand.
Our selection process varies depending on the location and position you’re interested in, but as a general rule, we encourage you to apply four to six months before your preferred start date – or earlier, if you’d like.
If you’re a deep thinker with a great personality and good business sense, join us and transform your future, today.
Preparing for your interview
We’re looking for talented individuals with an outstanding record of academic achievement to help us think today for a better tomorrow. You should thrive on teamwork, view constructive criticism as an opportunity to grow professionally, and have confidence in your skills and strengths. If this sounds like you, we look forward to meeting you.
To help you prepare for your interview, please spend some time familiarizing yourself with our work. We’ve also gathered together some useful SMC interview tips from across our network of Consultants.
“For the interviews, it’s important to be up-to-date on SMC’s latest challenges. So I would suggest you practice case studies and familiarize yourself with SMC, Siemens and the way strategy consulting operates.”
“Case studies not only enable you to brush up on business fundamentals and important management concepts, they also give you the opportunity to practice before interviews.”
“Be well prepared. Case studies are something you can practice in advance with your fellow students, and there’s plenty of material on the market. It also won’t harm you to brush up on your knowledge of SMC, Siemens and the industry, and to practice some mental arithmetic.”
“Be yourself, have fun and get to know the people you want to work with. It’s all about the team.”
“Take your time to think about what you want to say, and show that you’re able to focus even in a stressful situation.”
A world of opportunities
With offices in Germany, China, India and the US and a global client base, SMC offers opportunities to tackle projects in almost every country in the world. You’ll be placed within interdisciplinary teams, working flexibly to create international solutions to some of today’s most complex challenges.
