Hi there,

I believe there is no real differences between offices - a reasonable time frame is 18-24 months for McKinsey.

Since there was a relevant reason why you got rejected previously, it just takes some time to improve on those areas, which is realistically possible within that time frame of 18-24 months. In case you feel you brushed up your skills earlier (and can demonstrate that based on solid facts) you may want to get in touch with HR and discuss your individual situation, to try speeding up the process!

Hope that helps!

Robert

Hi A,

That's a good question. It depedns on a stage, where you failed. In general I agree with Robert: it may take from 18 to 24 months.
However, it depends on personal development needs. It may be shortened to 12 months.
The best course of action for you if you failed in a case-interview is to talk to a local HR. She will help you to understand the development areas and will tell you whether you were lucky enough to get 12 months ban.

All the best,

Egor

Hi,

Agree with the guys - 18-24 months. You should check with the HR what is your ban period exactly.

The standard rule is 18-24 months, though they make exceptions in some cases - e.g. if you were very close in the previous round, or if you have significantly improved your CV (e.g. undertaken a major internships, started a competitive masters programme).

Good luck!
