Hello, I would like to ask questions on referral (MBB & Big 4).
My question is:
1. If I get referred, do I need to still apply on the website (official channel)? I'm confused because I don't know whether I should apply on the website before getting referrals. I was thinking that maybe I can apply first, and try to find referrals at the same time.
2. Also, if I have already applied on website before the referral, does it mean the referral will not work and they can't get the referral bonus?
3. Does consulting firm usually require referral on system? Or, simply "forwarding the email to HR" would also do? Currently, my referrals at MBB mentioned they will forward my CV, but none mentioned about endorsing me through the system.
