Or there was some numerical filter like GPA or another test score that they set a minimum for and everyone under it is automatically rejected. Unless overridden by a Rec from a senior professional (i.e. a Partner).

Yeah-this is just a goofy ass system or human error. Don't take it personal. Also good idea to network with some real people at that company . Then they can "shepherd" your information through the system. A lot of the applicant systems are crap in my opinion and do nothing for the candidate or the company

Ouch. Did you go through the experienced recruiting team?

EY1/PWC1 thank u for providing constructive insights

I can't possibly see this happening by design. Even if they wanted to reject you, I seriously doubt they intended to inform you within 3 hours (or several days really).

you guys are great, each and every one of u. you're making me feel better already :)

One of my best friends is a recruiter at Deloitte, she says it happens all the time. I'm still sour our recruiting team didn't give her an offer after I referred her 😩

I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well. On top of that I have 16 months of experience in my B4/T2 consulting firm, and I have a ton of other experience on top of that interning at banks and startups. TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?
