Interesting question. I don’t think anyone has a number-based answer on this.
However, I would expect online tests and additional future automation in the recruiting funnel may remove some constraints in terms of the number of candidates to invite for tests.
While before MBB could invite a fixed number of people as tests were performed in the office, that constraint is not present anymore now with online tests.
This doesn’t really change how you should approach the application process. Your best bet is still to work hard on 3 things:
- Landing a referral
- Have a great CV
- Have a great Cover (not always required for all offices and companies)
