BCG Reapplication Timeline

Someone asked on Mar 25, 2019 - 3 answers

Hello there,

Can anyone confirm the BCG reapplication timeline? Do I have to wait a year before turning in another application? Or is it 6 months?

It will vary based on your profile and what they told you, but in general the timeline is more like 2 years, unless (a) you've been encouraged to reapply earlier, or (b) your profile changes significantly in the interim.

You may want to reach out to recruiting and ask them if unsure

It's at least a year (2 years in most of the cases)

You can e-mail / call the HR to check

Hi Anonymous,

I agree with Guennael, the standard period to reapply is 2 years. In certain situations, it is possible to apply again in a 1-year or 6-month period. Usually you receive feedback on the waiting period if it is not the standard one, you can also contact HR for clarifications.

Hope this helps,
