I recently applied for BCG at both London (primary location) and Seoul (secondary) but to be honest was looking for a job at London. I recently received an invite for interview at Seoul, and the email said I should assume that London had rejected me. Would it look bad if I withdraw the application?
I know about the unique hierarchical culture of Korea, and obscenely long hours worked, so was pretty put off the prospect of ending up there. I'm thinking of reapplying next year/year after to London/US offices but was wondering if withdrawing my application to Seoul would be detrimental to my chances of getting in the next year?
EDIT - I also want to ask to recruiters, in the case I do land a job at Seoul, what would the chances be of me deferring the offer by a year let’s say, then getting into London with my initial offer?
Many thanks for answering this in advance
