Can I submit an application for an entry level position outside my home-country?

Anonymous A asked on Sep 17, 2018 - 1 answer


I am EU, but I want to work in Middle East, can I apply straightforwardly -even without connections? I come from a top-tier EU university and have quite an extensive international experience and couple of language I master (on top of English).


How long does it take to go through the interview process from the moment I submitted my application (let's pretend i will do it tomorrow and would like to start to work by the beginning of 2019)? Could I start only after a month or less from having received a job offer?

Thank you in advance

a) Absolutely, you can also apply for a position abroad. Please go to our website join.rolandberger, select the country where you want to work and send your application directly to the office you have in mind. You do not need any connections, I only recommend you to explain why you want to work at RB in the Middle East and not in your home-country.

b) At RB, we have a fair and objective application process. We want to find out exactly why you're the right fit for us - and vice versa. After you submitted your application (please use our online tool), you will receive an answer within the next 2-3 weeks. If the feedback is positive, you will have several interviews (depending on your entry-level). Since we have numerous applications and give everyone the same chances, you should apply at least 6 months before your ideal start date.
