Deloitte online submission + referral

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

Hi Chris,
I recommend to call/write HR without worrying about bothering them: they are there to help.

Deloitte Consulting case: Footloose

Solved 59.9k times
Deloitte Consulting case: Footloose Duraflex is a German footwear company with annual men’s footwear sales of approximately €1 b. They have always relied on the boot market for the majority of their volume. In this market they compete with three other major competitors. In the fall of 2019, Badger – one of Duraflex’s competitiors – launched a new line of aggressively priced work boots. The strong success of this line has caused Duraflex’s management to re-evaluate their position in work boots. With limited additional resources, the management must now decide if they should focus their efforts on competing with Badger in the work boot sector, or allocate their resources on further strengthening their position with casual boots. The management team approached you and asked for your advice. In order to advise them on their future work boot strategy please prepare first some insights regarding market size and competitive landscape.
