so I see online that many firms leave applications open all year. I’ve also spoken to a recruiter from BCG who confirmed that applications are welcome at all times.
Is there a best time to apply? I know that firms have Assoicate campaigns and this is the suggested time but is there much difference ?
Lets consider person Joe Blogg.
Joe is in his final year of studies. Joe has the option to apply for the associate or analyst campaign in Feb/March, however Joe could also stall and apply in June after he is more prepared and performs better in interviews. let’s assume his case prep would increase from 30-60.
Joe has come to you as a consultant to find out what he should do to maximise his recruitment chances.
