McKinsey & Company I had a 30 minute screen with a recruiter for a role in Risk. They said they’ll get back to me after speaking with the team. I was then invited to a phone case screen. Does the team you’re being recruited into actually screen your resume and make a “yes/no” decision?

Answer is “it depends”. In the case of Risk I understand they do this a lot especially because of the type of hiring they do. It’s not like generalista of bigger practices hiring out of top schools through campus recruiting. In a lot of cases the needs are more specific and the candidates’ profiles are less straightforward to asses fit. All in all, I’m not at all surprised that the Risk recruiter had run your resume by folks and leadership in the practice.
