Hello everybody,

I have applied for the entry level position with Oliver Wyman (10 days ago) and Junior consultant position with Roland Berger (Today). Both London office.

Does anybody have any idea when should I expect a reply from them?

Hi there,

Usually it takes 2-4 weeks.

When I applied to OW, after 4 weeks of silence I called the office. The HR person looked at my CV during the call, found it interesting and invited me for interviews on the spot. So it pays to be proactive if you don’t hear back ;)

Best,
Francesco

Hi there,

It can take weeks, sometimes months.

Do you have a relationship with anyone in the firm? (ideally you do). If so, you can reach out in 3-4 weeks to follow-up on the application.

Hello!

Within a month everything is normal and you should wait.

Longer, contact HR.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

This of course depends on many different factors, especially now that COVID is disrupting many processes. If you have received a confirmation receipt, I would expect a response within 2-4 weeks.

Hi A,

It depends. I would expect to get a reply within 3-4 weeks.

If you still have no news after a month of waiting contact HR for an update.

Best,

André

Hi,

You can expect them to reply even in 1 month time. Though the median reply is usually 1 week.

I suggest that you should find recruiters on LinkedIn and ask them directly.

Good luck!

Hi there,

A response can be sent up to one month. I recommend you contact HR if almost a month has passed.

Have you got any response from HR already?

All the best,
