Book a coaching
MBB

Do Consultants at Bain also get and review candidates all academic and professional certificates (such as transcript of records, employment certificates etc.) or do they only get a CV and Cover Letter from the HR while interviewing?

Hi,

Consultants only get your CV.

Everything else they do after the interview:

  1. HR will check your transcripts after you get the offer
  2. Security service will check your background, if you have equities in other companies, employment records, etc. They may call prior employers undercover to check some info, but they will be just checking the details of your employment, not your performance.

Best,

Hi Anonymous,

consultants don’t check transcripts or supporting documents, that’s done by HR as screening after an offer is extended.

During interview interviewers get only the resume. All the background checks on transcripts, work experience etc is done through external firms in US.

hope it helps,
