10% of first round interviewees get offers.. according to igotanoffer’s blog

For mck ops in 2020 it was closer to 25-30% chance if you got a first round. The main hurdle was even getting the phone screen. Only about 3% of total applicants got to that stage.

Were the Bain/BCG cold applications or through a referral? Main way to have a high likelihood of the resume being reviewed would be through a referral, but for me it even took talking to a partner (connected through a former boss) to get to the phone screen. I applied when there was uncertainty about the direction covid would go so that probably played a part as well. Phone screen is a conversation about your background with a little PEI built in to see if you fit the bill for the role you are applying for. Definitely be ready with a couple of examples that resonate with the McK values.

I have heard ~10%

Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with.

Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.
