What if the Engagement Manager told me that he will send an email to HR first about me? Is this still considered a Referral?

Hi there,

Assuming he will attach your CV and details - yes. I got referred at McKinsey exactly in the same way. I did not have to apply online – the consultant simply forwarded my CV to HR.

Best,

Francesco
