I had applied via portal last year (September) and got rejected at the CV screening stage. However, I was networking heavily at that point in time and a couple of days ago I received a reply from a partner and asked me to schedule a call.
1 - Should I tell me that I got rejected last year in the month of September?
2 - I know Mckinsey has a 12-24 months cool-off period. If a partner is ready to refer me, will they review my application, or do I still have to wait for 12-24 months.
I got rejected by the London office. I am interested in Dubai, London, and the India offices.
3 - If he is happy to refer me which office should I ask him to refer me to? Can I ask him to refer me to the London office given the fact that I already got rejected by them 7 months ago or should I go safe and tell him to refer me to India or Dubai office?
