McKinsey’s social media policy mandates first person. I’ve continued to follow that even after leaving McKinsey

When I review candidates I find third person to be narcissistic, especially as 99.9% of all people including partners write their own profile.

Is this “mass resignation” real. After almost 100 applications I mostly get auto rejections. I had referrals from all levels and it seems like they want cheaper or more knowledge even though they said I was good for the role. Maybe they are doing this to say they can’t find qualified people?
