I have a first round interview with BCG Dubai in 2 weeks (asked them to delay it as I have my finals now) for associate position. I have finance MSc plus CFA level 2. I'm more inclined into finance specialties but I'm not too sure about joining a bank now, though I had the opportunity to, just because I still want to get the best of all worlds, hence why consulting. I don't want to corner myself narrowly now. However, I'm really interested in the PIPE practice at BCG, especially in the middle east. I feel like it's the best utilisation of my skills & experience. Question is - is it a good idea to tell the interviewer I'm interested in this practice? And generally, how do they staff their recent joiners? Does preference play a role?
I indicated my interest in PIPE in my cover letter, needless to say.
Appreciate any help!
