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.
Resume 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
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.
in Mck from Busyness Analyst to Enagement Manager, I never did CV screening. It's part of HR process
In McKinsey, CV screening is done by the recruitment team, who then share it relevant office partners to start Organising interviews.
A more apt question would be - Who would review the CV for the following levels?
1. Associate Consultant
3. Case Team Leader
I have a friend at Bain London who is an Associate consultant, he told me recently that they do the first round of screening for CVs.
