Hello all,

I applied for an entry-level position at McK a few minutes before the deadline.

I later received an email stating: "For a thorough review, we would need more information about your background. If you haven't done it yet, please provide us copies of university transcripts and high school transcripts. "

Will adding the required documents make me "late" (as if I applied after the deadline)?

Thanks!

Hello!

Don´t worry, seems that the application went in on time -if not, you would not have got that message, but one rejecting you-.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

Hey there,

No. Also, if you are already being requested to send it there is no way around it. If you don't send it your application will likely not be considered at all.

Fingers crossed for your application!

Cheers,

Florian

Hello,

It's not a problem if you have submitted the application within the deadline, it's just additional documentation required.

Best,

You definitely won't be late but I would try and send it asap!

PS: I'm a little suprised that McK is asking for transcripts at the application stage (especially high school)... which office have you applied to?

Hello, it's the Zurich office. Is this unusual? Thanks!

Although it's not common in other office, having checked with a friend at McK Zurich, it seems like this is part of their selection process. Good luck!
