top new grad employers

Many entry-level undergrads start at McKinsey as business analysts or fellows on client services teams, where they're expected to immediately and fully participate and engage with clients. "There's no waiting to contribute, so it's a great environment for recent grads to learn and have an impact," says Brian Rolfes, partner and director of Global Recruiting.

After two years, BAs who want to continue with McKinsey have several options, including a year-long rotation through various locations around the globe, returning to school with financial support from the firm, or an externship with a client.

With more than 100 offices in over 60 countries and a strong emphasis on team-based work, McKinsey has gained a reputation as a great place to build and grow a network across industries and around the globe. "A McKinsey network can be the best career tool around," Rolfe says. --B.B.
