I applied to Oliver Wyman but the video interview invitation comes from Mercer?

Uzo asked on Jan 19, 2019 - 2 answers

I am aware that Mercer and Oliver Wyman are both subsidiaries of Marsh&McLennan. The application on my Oliver Wyman account is called 'London - Intern - Core Consultant Group'.

But HireVue's video interview invitation calls it the 'Mercer Internship'. Is there something I am missing?

Hi Uzo,

that may just be a typo, or there could have been a mistake in your application screening; I would contact HR to clarify whether they received correctly your application for OW.

Hope this helps,

Pick up the phone, call HR and just ask.
