The situation now is that market is still sleeping in the summer low season. The recruiting activities and most of the firms McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Roland Kearney, Strategy&, Kearney and other firms will strongly resume in September, after most people get back from their vacations.
In general there will be reduced intake this year, since also many people starts later this year, but the market is still prospective. So to be specific BCG would resume hiring strongle. Now their hiring is not that strong, Startegy& will also recover after August, Roland Berger is already actively looking and doing recruiting events online, especially also for American University of Beirut and other Business Schools, Oliver Wyman and Kearney have been more active recently.

Things are starting to kick back up! Exact timelines (including start dates, in-cycle vs out of cycle, etc.) do vary, but in general we're seeing momentum here.
I highly recommend you actually reach out to any companies you're interested in to find out - it's an excellent excuse to flag your interest + name.
