Our application process

What to expect when applying for SMC

Our recruiting for summer associates starts in late Feb or early March. Once you’ve applied, we’ll get back to you no later than two weeks after we receive your application. If you are successful, we will invite you to a pre-talk, a short discussion with our consultants to get to know you and learn more about your motivation. Once you pass the pre-talk, we’ll invite you to our first round, a face-to-face interview with one of our consultants. If we think you’re a good fit personally and professionally, you’ll be invited to an interview day with two interviews.


The main focus is to see how you interact with our consultants, and to give us an insight into your career choices. On the day, you’ll work through case-studies, tackling real problems from past SMC consulting projects.


You’ll be given detailed feedback after your interviews, and if you’re well suited, we’ll offer you an internship.
