How does MBB select resume reviewers for applications? Do they source from client staff globally, regionally?

It depends. If it’s a target school there is a target school recruiting team with lots of consultants almost always from that school. They’ll do the reviews for that particular target school.

Basically same process for Bain for targets and semi-targets (for North America undergrad), although the alumni team gets the full list to process (not a shorter list created by recruiting). Then there’s a non-core team made up of folks from a variety of schools to handle non-core applications, as well as for schools in North America Core (elite schools) recruiting in offices without a ton of local alums (someone from Harvard recruiting for Texas, for instance). Experienced hiring (sans MBA) is relatively rare at Bain, but it runs through the school team associated with the candidate’s undergrad.

This is a thing? I thought HR reviewed everything

Was never the type to care so much about feeling out of place but the last few months since I joined MBB i've been finding more and more how the firm is full of rich kids with similar experiences and a shared network. It shouldn't matter, we're here to work, but I'm bothered anyway. Idk where I stand here -- cant blame them for having overlaps w each other -- but I feel very much excluded to say the least. Can't relate. Feels like it makes a steep slope to succeeding in consulting even steeper.
