What personal data do they save at recruiting events?

Does anyone know what kind of personal data consultancies save at recruiting events? Do they also save comments regarding one's performance or things like that?

In US at recruiting events consulting staff is asked to write impressions about candidates they interacted with during the event itself. Main categories feedback is collected around are:

  • Executive presence
  • Verbal communication skills
  • Interest in consulting
  • Interest in firm (cross offers, cross processes, etc)
  • Fit with company
  • Fit with office
  • Preparedness

All personal data is collected through the application/registration/resume you send/give the company.

Treat recruiting events as real pre-screens that can help you get an interview or can lower your probabilities to get one.

Hope it helps,

Andrea

Hi,

In McKinsey it really depends. In the events in Eastern Europe, UK and US I have attended the recruiters only collected the informal Feedback about the candidates - i.e. whom should we have for an interview. It may be different for case competitions, but again, not necessarily

Bain collects a lot of information during the events and you can even skip the first step of the interview (test) if you are outstanding on these events.

B-school events are a bit different. You should write a Thank You note after the event and make a good rapport. Chances are high that the consultants will remember you and give some informal feedback.
