I applied to L.E.K. Consulting for their internship programs and haven't heard back. I have a good profile and was able to get interviews from more reputed firms. I'm wondering if referral is a preferred way for LEK to reach out to potential employees or is the firm not actively hiring? Can someone help me in this?

We’re actively hiring and have interviewed plenty of cold resumes :) but if you’re interviewing w more reputed firms then there is nothing to worry about :)

I'm a PhD student (public health & eng). Applied to the Link to LEK PhD/MD Program. Any LEK folks willing to give me a referral?

That “more reputed firms” comment tells me all I need to know about your profile.

No haha the only reason I mentioned that was because I was hoping to atleast get picked up for a screening round by LEK but I've heard nothing for a few months which is weird

Interviews at one firm != interviews at another. Sound like you have a good profile for some “more reputed” firms, but not a good profile for LEK.

Are you a student? Not sure if a referral would be helpful in this context

Had an interview with FB this week. Recruiter said they were going to schedule time with me to prep for the next round (which involved a case interview with a team member). Had the recruiter interview Monday morning and still haven't received any follow up. Is this normal considering recruiter told me on the call that I'd made it to the next round? What is the best way to respond? I was thinking about calling to leave a follow up message. Is this too much?
