What is a TS SCI Full Scope Poly professional? Just apply online. Lots of people here did. Our recruiters are pretty good. A general referral will get you nothing - they’ll just send the resume to recruiting. So same as applying online. Though if you know someone who does similar work that will at least get the resume to the right recruiter.

I heard that McKinsey is tapping a lot into the defense and security government space especially during COVID19. I saw that they are looking for people with a TS/SCI w/ polygraph clearance. But thank you for the advice! Good to know applying online actually works! Lol

Yeah, just cold applied online

I had an interview with 2 senior managers last week for an industry position and it went super well. All behavioral questions.

Don’t have any background on what the interview will be like and I really want the job! Any advice would be great.

Is this fair and normal or is this a sign I need to look for a new job and resign? I feel like I’m being punished for being on maternity leave.
