McKinsey off-cycle [#permalink] New post 03 Nov 2011, 18:46
I just applied online for a full-time associate position at McKinsey. I know I'm applying off-cycle and that it's an uphill battle. I'm a current student at a top business school - don't ask me why I didn't apply sooner. How long should I wait to hear back before concluding that it's a ding? Thank you.

The deadlines differ from country to country. Try to reach out to the HR at McKinsey. They are very friendly. Alternatively, if you know anyone at McKinsey, it might be better to contact them and help you in getting an interview. Have you written the test?

1. When you say "top", how Top is that? Trust me this question is very relevant.
2. Off cycle hiring? You are better off networking your way in than waiting for a response in that case. So if you are in a top business school, then am sure you wouldn't have a problem finding classmates employed there.

Yeah, I agree. the best way would be to actually get in touch with people who currently work their, including consultants and HR. I would also think about a story to tell why you didn't apply earlier. Did you change you industry preference? Why did you decide that consulting is a right thing for you now, given you didn't apply several weeks/months ago.
