Hello Preplounge community,

About 5 weeks ago I was referred to Deloitte for a Senior Consultant - Experienced hire position. I still did not hear back from Deloitte. Should I reach out to the HR services in the office I applied for an update or wait until I receive an answer? (my contact is not located in the same office).

Please note that I submitted an application for another position 2 weeks later (no referral), and received a negative answer already.

Thanks,

Chris

Dear Chris,

I would strongly recommend you to follow up with your contact and ask him/her to check the state of your application within HR and get back to you. If that doesn't work, feel free to reach out to HR afterwards directly.

If you need any help with other firms, drop me in PM.

Best,


André
