I have a question regarding the application for consulting in Germany exclusively.
I polished up my CV with a lot of tips I found in the forum as well as specific sites, like "igotanoffer.com" and so on. I am quite satisfied with the result and also received a good amount of invitations for interviews from 2 MBBs, some Tier 2s, and others.
However, two Big4s and some consultancies I was really interested in gave me an instant rejection.
So I am wondering, do you think it might be a problem that my CV and cover letter are in English although I am applying in Germany?
I am German and would have no problem with writing a cover letter/ Anschreiben in German, but I just really like an English CV so much better than the classic German CV, which is my I write my cover letter in English also for consistency.
Any thoughts or experiences? Would you recommend sticking always with the German language when the job description is in German?
