Michael asked on Feb 25, 2020

Hi All,

I would like to ask if anyone is willing to provide constructive feedback on my CV and CL please?

Recently I was unlucky with several applications (including McKinsey) at CV/CL stage and would like to understand why. Two reasons that come to mind are:

  1. My CV and CL not good enough in terms of formatting, grammar, style etc.
  2. My experience, the academic record is not sufficient for MBB and other top companies?

I would hate to be missing on opportunities because of the first one. However, if it is the second one I can understand it and will put my focus on gaining better quality experience before applying again.

Currently, I am working on an application to Bain and would appreciate genuine feedback, please.
