Dear PrepLounge community,
Couple days ago, I visited a small conference in a town where I leave. One of the speakers was a current partner at BCG for that area. The conference had nothing to do with consulting and I was one of the rare people who approached the parter to have a short conversation with him.
I asked him what does he love to see in candidates and how to stand out. After that we talked for a couple more minutes about him, BCG and me. He was very open and helpful. He said that I should feel free to contact him if I have any questions or if I need anything. I added him on LinkedIn and he even viewed my profile.
I plan to apply in 2 months for BCG and I don't know if I should contact him - should it be now, when I apply or never? I am afraid he might forget who I am in two months, but I don't know what to ask him now. I don't know if I should contact him at all, maybe he was just being polite.
Any advice is appreaciated :)
