A friend of mine at BCG asked me to email him my resume to refer me. Before sending him, I want to make sure my resume is fit for consulting and it is ready to be submitted in a portal. I was wondering if anyone is willing to quickly review my resume.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Luca, I haven't worked on cover letter yet. My friend said it's not very important at this stage. However, I believe cover letter is important. What would you suggest?

Luca on Dec 18, 2019

I agree that is not the most important thing in the process, sometimes they even don't read it. Anyway not writing a cover letter is a bad signal for the HR staff, because you give the idea of not being so motivated or precise. I would recommend to write a cover letter without spending too much time on it.
