Is there a specific way to approach recruiters from Bain, BCG and McK? I'm trying to apply for roles at Senior Associate level across these organizations, but am unable to elicit a response from any of the recruiters/talent acquisition folks here. A rejection is also fine, it just feels like my words falling on deaf ears and blind eyes as of now while I follow up. Is there someone who can help out with a referral?

Internal Associates looking for a change - >Director or Partner Level Referrals - >Other Referrals - >People applied through Careers Portal This is how applications are prioritised mostly. And for MBB, exceptional academic qualifications and relevant work experience is a must. Sometimes, even with PPO, not everyone gets shortlisted for final interviews during their PGP2 in top IIMs. So, unless you are from Target B-School or coming with highly relevant Consulting Experience, it is difficult to land a front end consulting job at MBB. There are other CoEs & verticals that are easier to get into at MBB. So, don't focus too much on not receiving a response. I applied to McK in early Feb and received rejection mail in late May🤷(by then, forgot that I applied😅)

Thank you, this really helps. Actually I've been trying to target MBB since my PGD days (From a target campus) however had hard luck getting a shortlist (Fresher B.Tech (NIT) (9,9,8) profile). With 3 years of experience in a boutique consulting firm, I thought I'll try again. Btw, how did you apply to McK? Portal?

1. Most hiring is done through campus hiring from target schools. Lateral hires are very rare at Associate levels, although you can ask for referrals. 2. Getting shortlisted is difficult, unless you have a stellar profile 3. Senior Associate at BCG =/= Senior Associate at McK. At BCG, it is an entry level designation post MBA while at McKinsey it’s 3-4 years post MBA and for this you’d need atleast 5-7 years of consulting experience to even be considered

Thank you for responding. I'd applied for these from my campus as well, had a hard luck getting any shortlist. So ideally, the only slim chance of even getting a response would be either through a credible source of referral or a highly stellar profile, right? Also, do these orgs. have target organizations for experienced professionals? E.g. they don't hire from Indian conglomerates, etc??
