How do I reach HR or the recruiting team in a specific Mckinsey office (Abu Dhabi)? I would like to ask a few questions about the application before submitting it. I've been calling the number on the website for a few days and no one picks up (perhaps because I am calling from abroad). Any advice?

Hello!

Usually you can find the information online, since this is the people that organise the events, calls, etc.

In normal times I would advise you literally to show up in the office and tlak to recruiting -since they sit here-. You can try with a call for sure!

Best of luck!

Cheers,

Clara

Unfortunatley I don't know the specific situation for the Abu Dhabi office but my guess would be that recruiting is covered by the team in Dubai. I would look up individuals on Linkedin and email them. The McKinsey email ID is First name_Last n***@m*******.com. I personally would avoid calling as recruiters - imagine being in their shoes and having candidates cold calling spontaneously...

Hello there!

Have you tried to contact them via the Contact Us section on their website? You could specify your question concerning Abu Dhabi office or connect with McKinsey Middle East here by filling out the form
https://www.mckinsey.com/middle-east/contact-us

This process may take some time, so you could just use LinkedIn to contact consultants from there. Plus, it's a good way to find a referral.

Going through the official channels on their website or through a connection of yours are typically the best choices. I would not try to email people directly that you haven't met, just by guessing their email adresses.

Hi,

Have you tried sending an e-mail? In some countries McKinsey recruiting also has social networks

Maybe because of Covid no one is in the office

Hi,

I woul suggest try the Recruiting email box or try to identify the person in LinkedIn and send a message.

HR usually quite responsive in LinkedIn.

Best,
Iman
