I have a tough decision to make and would like to learn from your opinion. Last year I went to the final round of a MBB firm. They told me the ban period is at leat 1 year, and they would reconsider my application if they can see some clear changes on my CV. Also, they suggest me to reapply "when I am prepared".
It has already been 1 year since I previously applied to the firm, and I expect to get a promotion in 2 months. I am considering reapplying this year probably in the fourth quarter. But due to my jumpy work experience (I've changed jobs a few times and each job ranges from 1~2 years), I'm thinking whether I should apply next year instead just to "stabilize" my CV and make my current job look longer? The point is, I will be turning 34 next year, and I don't feel there's much growth opportunities in my current firm. I would strongly prefer starting a career at MBB sooner than later.
Please share some of your thoughts. Thanks a lot!
