Hi,

The problem is that, I submitted an application to a full-time McKinsey role in a different country through the web 3 months ago and never got a response. Now it is the time for campus recruitment and I've got the materials ready for the application to the local office, can I just withdraw the old one and then submit a new one?

I know this question is quite silly, but I just want to make sure that my new application won't be influenced.

Thanks a lot!

Hello Eli,

If you didn't receive any answer, you can definetely apply again in the new office. If there is a campus recruitment, it will be also a good opportunity to meet HR staff in person and start building a network that could speed up your application timeline.

Best,
Luca

You can't withdraw but definitely talk to the local recruiter and they'll work something out (offices can "trade" interviewees)

Hello Elie,

Honestly I am unsure about wheter it will have any impact to withdraw it or not. If you have the chance of on-campus recruitment, I would reach out to the recruiter and ask directly.

Cheers,

Clara

Hi,

No, you can't withdraw the application. But you can:

  1. Reach out to on-campus recrutier
  2. Ask your classmates (ex MBBs) to refer you to on-campus recruiter
