I have just applied to McKinsey Middle East (Riyadh office) a few days ago. I have completed the Game (solve) and I do believe that I did very well [living ecosystem in 20 minutes and redrock study was completed on time]. I have three main questions:
1) How do you usually reach out to HR/recruiting team? I only receive generic emails from a non-monitored email to complete the assessment.
2) I have a non-MBA masters and 3-4 years of experience. My referral talked with HR and told her that I can apply to the Associate role and might be readjusted to Junior Associate based on my performance. Would I receive a rejection just because I applied to Associate rather than Junior Associate?
3) I have not received any email directly after completing the game confirming my submission/completion of the game. Is this normal?
4) I know that strategy consulting in the middle east is slowing down recruitment. Will my application be automatically considered for a different rate (for example, early 2024 start date)?
Thank you so much!
