Probably both. My referral to EY got lost in the mix and look at me now (still here at Booz Allen...)


I think best bet is to have your friend figure out the right recruiter and follow up


That they would pass my information on to the right recruiting team. It's been over a week and I'm concerned my referral got lost in the mix. Should I reach out to the first recruiter again to follow up? Or should I reach out to my friend who can put me in touch with the correct recruiter? I'm not sure if it's normal for the process to take this long, and don't want to look like a jackass for trying to go around their recruiting process

My experience is you get dumped in the referral pool and anyone can find and contact you. Unless the Principal sends you directly to their recruiter.

Agree with M1. Best of luck!

I had a weirdo recruiter from EY's Federal practice contact me once even though I made it clear I was commercial only. Definitely made me reconsider my interest.

I have an interview with a COO(Chief Operating Officer) tomorrow for software developer position in McKinsey. This is my 4th Round, what should I expect ? How far I am from my selection? The recruiter mentioned that the round is going to be a technical one, she also said that there will be another round after this.

Hi fishes.

I have an offer from Oracle. The designation mentioned in offer letter is "Member Technical Staff." In the email it was also mentioned as "Senior Software Developer". But I interviewed for Senior Automation QA. Does my job role match my designation?

I asked the recruiter and he said Senior Automation QA and Senior Software Developer are given the same designation. I'm worried if my work will be different from what I am experienced in due to the designation. Can anyone clarify?
