Hi all, I just got an email from McKinsey recruiting team after I took the digital assessment a few days ago, asking for 'additional information' which includes my personal detail including address and official name. Fyi, I only submitted resume without official online application thus those information may need to be verified.

Does this mean I will be considered as a candidate for the next round? Or is it simply an automated reply? This is important for me since the position I applied for is an expert-path, while I am preparing for generalist consultant position for other firms as well, so I need to allocate preparation time efficiently.

I applied 5 days ago, took digital assessment 3 days ago, and just got this email today.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

You should better check what's the e-mail address and who sent it. It's easy to spot an automated e-mail

I think it's an automated one seeing the address. Thanks.
