I was referred to Mckinsey by an Associate Partner and have just received a link to apply. I have three questions concerning this:
1) I am required to upload a resume on the portal as part of the application. Can I upload a slightly modified one as compared to the version I sent to the Associate Partner. No severe changes, just some stronger bullet points that describe the same achievements.
2) The Partner told me to not send them a cover letter because Mckinsey "doesn't bother with those". I don't currently have a cover letter written. Should I delay the application a few days until I write one or do I go by their word and not bother either.
3) I have 1.5 years of experience in engineering consulting and a Master of Science. The Associate Partner reffered me to a Junior Associate role and indeed the link I received was for that. I am worried that I will be automatically rejected by the recruiting team because I don't have the necessary experience. Any insight on that? How would I be able to reach out to the recruiting team to discuss this?
I truly appreciate any help on this.
