Experience level: Consultant

60+ people coached for Management Consulting

Manali has helped clients get into these companies:

I was in a pool of 300+ applicants for consulting while in business school and successfully advanced to final-round interviews for Bain, BCG, and McKinsey, eventually joining McKinsey's Denver office. At McKinsey, I participated on the recruiting committee, screening resumes, coordinating recruiting events, and serving as a buddy for new hires. I have helped 30+ candidates, providing personalized coaching on content, mock interviews, detailed feedback, and ongoing support. What makes me different: I have a rigorous, structured approach to preparing for consulting interviews. I have a full set of custom frameworks, tools, trackers, and content I can share to support your ongoing preparation. I provide detailed, in-line comments and line-by-line edits for your resume and/or cover letter, and I make sure you start with a robust understanding of the interview process and insights into different expectations across MBB firms.

About Manali

I was the first person in my family to attend college, and I graduated from the University of Notre Dame. After college, I was a college admissions mentor for first-generation students in San Francisco. This is where I discovered my passion for personal storytelling, coaching, and leadership development. Despite an average GPA and GMAT scores for M7 schools, I interviewed for 3 programs and was accepted to Chicago Booth as a Round 3 Admit. At Booth, I served as an interviewer for the admissions committee. I successfully advanced to final-round interviews for Bain, BCG, and McKinsey, eventually joining McKinsey's Denver office. At McKinsey, I participated on the recruiting committee, screening resumes, coordinating recruiting events, and serving as a buddy for new hires. Today, I'm a B2B marketplace and SaaS veteran and have served as a strategic leader, building high-performance teams and implementing data-driven strategies that consistently deliver financial outcomes. Given my unique personal story and broad professional experience across large corporations and startups, I excel at helping non-traditional candidates. I specialize in supporting candidates articulate their unique value propositions, beyond GPA and GMAT scores, emphasizing how their perspectives can enrich classroom discussions or consulting team rooms. I live in Denver with my husband and two young kids. I enjoy reading, cooking, and anything outdoors.

Why do I coach?

As the first person in my family to attend college and often an "only" in the room, coaches and mentors have played an important role in my career. I believe that education continues to be the key to opportunity, and it is important to me to pay-it-forward. I especially take a lot of pride in championing women to embrace leadership roles.
