E&Y Online Application

Q: Should applicants expect to be notified by E&Y if unsuccessful when applying online or they will only contact successful applicants for interviews?

Thanks

Who knows. Sometimes submitting things online (on websites generally, I'm not talking about EY here) feels like sending it to the Recycle Bin. Give them a call?

Assuming you applied through their Taleo system (their online application portal) you'll get an email telling you that you are unsuccessful.

I believe all (not speaking about EY here) consulting firms 'try' to notify applicants whether they are succesful or not. I think it's probably more the quality of the individual recruiter than the whole firm.

Not that this in anyway answers your question.

It is always the completely unsuitable applicants who take offence when they dont get immediate responses. I have no idea why.

And they are also the ones who demand to know why they were 'rejected'

Candidate - "Why am I not suitable?"

Recruiter - "Well sir, We recruit for Management Consultants in the Strategy space. From reviewing your CV/experience as a Bus Driver, the only 'Strategic' work I can see is when you made reference to a road closure and your ability to make a strategic decision on the most suitable alternative route".

marsday,

What would be a better channel for application (if one can't apply via employee referrals) ? Would you say linkedIn (if not redirecting to Taleo) is a better option ?

Edit: My question is not specific to E&Y. Just general question for companies using Taleo.

Thanks !

Seeker is a firm is using a talent management portal (be it Taleo, Brassring or whatever else) then ultimately your application will wind up there, regardless of how you approach the firm.

I would usually recommend a dual approach - assuming you have contacts in your target firms. Reaching out to people within the organisation is useful, and for those with a less than impeccable profile can be productive, but is often mishandled (i.e. people put themselves forward as candidates rather than using it as a networking/information gathering exercise with a potential internal referral off the back of that).

Best approach for an advertised role - apply through the route they ask you to use (website, email the internal or whatever it is) and back that up with a note to x contact at the firm, making them aware of your application, asking for any guidance they can give on who you could talk to to add a little weight to your application. Dont ask them to do the work for you (MCs can be political places, and unless they know you very well indeed may be reluctant to out their own name to someone they cannot be absolutely confident will get an offer).

Linkedin is a great tool, but its not really one for applying for jobs through individuals - that is effectively using LI as a sales channel, and that doesnt work well. It is email after all and you cannot sell over email. Use LI as a networking tool to support and inform applications but not the main route.
