Hey everyone,

I want to apply for an internship in Germany. How far in advance should I apply for RB and McKinsey? Are two months sufficient?

All the best.

Hi Sona,

You should check their official website or contact recruitment.

Hi Lenny,

quoting a previous answer, that depends on the country you are applying to. In Italy for example there is rolling admission, while in UK as you mentioned you have specific deadlines, normally concentrated in the period September – December.

For new graduates, usual starting dates in Europe/US are September and January. Statistically, many interviews take place in September-November (January intake) and January-March (September intake). The best period to apply as a new graduate is the first month of the period when interviews take place, since the process just reopened and you will have less competition. Thus, that would be September for the January intake, and January for the September intake. Having said that, you should check for the specific deadlines of the programme you are interested in, as they may vary by country. The best period may also depend on on-campus recruiting, which for undergrads is usually in September-October and for MBA in January-February.

Hi Lenny,

Not sure if you're coming from a specific program/university that may have specific deadlines, but as a good rule of thumb (especially for McKinsey) you should apply as soon as possible, as applications are reviewed in a rolling basis, and some offices tend to have limited capability in the number of internships they can offer

I dont know if two months are sufficient or not.

In Indonesia, as far as I know, McK is open all year round for recruitment and internship.
