Hi, at most consulting firms, the CV screening is done by the consulting staff and not the human resource department. I was wondering which level employees (Associate, Team Leader, Manager, Pricinpal, Partner) do the initial screening at Bain.

I have not worked at Bain or interviewed there so this more of a general answer. I have worked at McKinsey and Deloitte. Did a ton of recruiting at Deloitte. This is how it used to be done

Who does resume screening depends on level.

  • For Analyst level, an Analyst volunteer team used to do it and help HR
  • For Associate level, then Assoicates volunteer used to do it
  • For Experienced hires, HR does screening with guidance from consultants who volunteer their time to help. usually at the level or above what the applicant applies

Hi,

In general, at Bain the CV screening is done by the recruiting office, which is part of the HR dept, but it can vary from office to office.

Best regards,

I recently completed a CV and CV course. I realized that I made fatal errors when writing these forms. You must understand exactly why you need it and indicate all your motivations. I am grateful to this resource https://craftresumes.com/resume-review/ that provided me with a ready template. Now I work in the field of education
