Don’t use a recruiter, split a referral fee with someone that works there. Timeline is much more condensed in this market. I imagine if you are qualified and looking at a group that’s busy, you could apply and have an offer in a few days to a week. For example, it took me 3 days from application to offer at one of the firms I applied to, and that was even before this current market frenzy really grew legs.

Yes, that does work. If you don’t use a recruiter, they have more money to pay you a signing bonus, etc. Recruiters just extract value from folks that are otherwise hireable without their “help”. It also doesn’t matter if you don’t know anyone in a particular city. Do you know anyone at all? It’s okay to get the referral from someone in an entirely different state, etc.

I recently interviewed for a client-side marketing manager role with a global company. I’ve been engaged with the company for over a year and built a network of internal advocates.

After five interviews I was not selected although I met all of requirements and more. I’ve yet to from her as to why. Would you fight this?

Hey all, I know MBB sponsor international candidates but at what stage they look at your visa situation. Do they take into consideration initially before sending you any online assessment test and while reviewing your CV or they look for it after you go through interviews. I had a chat with previous McKinsey consultant and he was like you automatically get cut off from the system if you select 'require visa sponsorship'. Not sure if it is true or not?
