I applied for the Associate position at McKinsey this summer. However, after a bit more than one month, I haven't received any reponse from the recruiting team. Is it appropriate to contact the recruiter regarding the application status?

Hi,

Absolutely! For some reason, people are afraid of contacting the recruiter, but they don't realize that the recruiters are there to help you

Best!

Hi Anonymous,

Yes, absolutely - there is nothing against politely asking your HR contact about the current status of your application!
