I'd like to know if it is possible for a first-year Associate Consultant to transfer office at Bain before starting. If possible, who should I talk to?
Here is my background information in case it helps:
I'm an undergraduate student in the top 30 U.S. university. I joined the Bain Greater China office as an Associate Consultant Intern this summer and received a full-time offer after completing the internship program. I like Bain's culture a lot and Bain's expertise in Consumer Goods and Private Equity fits my future career path.
I have signed the full-time offer from the Greater China office, but now is considering transferring to North America for several reasons:
- First, my girlfriend will be completing her Master's degree in North America in the next 2 years, so we don't want to do long-distance relationship.
- Second, I applied for the Greater China office for ACI last year because I wanted to work in my home country. However, there are a lot of things going on in China right now with the Zero-Covid policy, so I changed my mind, and I'm now looking for opportunities in NA.
I would appreciate any advice on this issue! Thank you in advance!
