I was referred by a Project Leader and a Consultant (2yr) at BCG for an experienced hire role.
Last Monday, the Project Leader mentioned I should follow up with him within a week if I hadn't heard back from recruitment. While chatting to a Consultant he introduced me to on Thursday, I discovered that the Project Leader's wife just gave birth and that he would be MIA for a month.
I'm wondering if I should follow up with the consultant instead?
The problem is that we just finished a 3-day weekend so I'm not sure if HR is just slow this week. I'm also not sure if going back to the consultant so quickly after meeting him would be seen as pushy.
Should I just pull the trigger?
Appreciate any advice!
