Anonymous A asked on Jun 01, 2021

Hello,

I applied online on Bain's website for an associate position (although I have industry background in Oil& Gas), but received a rejection email today

Can I ask for a referral or I need to wait for the ban to be lifted? And how long is the ban in this case?

Hi there,

Sorry to hear. You will likely have to wait between 12 and 24 months before applying again (depends on the office/situation).

In the future, do as much as you can to network and get put in touch with HR/referred to maximize your odds!

Hi, I confirm that you should wait at least 12 months to apply again. Then a referral would be great to accelerate the process and maximize the chances to get an invitation

Best,

Antonello

Hey there,

Unfortunately, this means you cannot re-apply right away.

You can shorten the time to re-apply in 2 ways:

  1. Network and receive multiple referrals
  2. Work on your resume and show significant development in 2 of 3 areas (education, work experience, extracurricular activities, and initiatives)

All the best!
