BCG | 100% personal interview success rate (8/8) and 95% candidate success rate | Personalized interview prep

I have a guess as to who this is :)

Just for other candidate's reference, my advice is the following: Network!

Networking has a 2 birds 1 stone effect. Not only are you maximing your chances of getting an interview (by aiming to get a referral or get put in touch with HR), but during these calls/chats you can get an idea of which offices are hiring and when.

Lots of moving pieces to this as hiring situations change monthly. So, the best way is to just send those LinkedIn messages, pick up the phone, and get talking to people in those offices.

Good luck :)

P.S. For reference,For NYC/Bay Area/Boston specifically I am currently coaching candidates who are interviewing at BCG NYC + Boston and Deloitte NYC

Hey there,

when in doubt you can always use the LinkedIn Jobs option. Most firms (including MBB and Big 4) post their positions on LinkedIn. So you'll see something like "Consultant, Boston Area, McKinsey".

Hope this helps.

Hello,

I am quite sure that every consulting firm is hiring in this period of the year. Looking for some posts on linkedn or website could be a good idea but sometimes recruiting is still active even if you don't find anything.

Best,
Luca

Hey there,

Considering it is the start of the 2021 recruiting season, every firm should be recruiting now.

Easiest is to check their websites and call HR if you have specific questions.

Cheers,

Pretty much all firms. The business model is based on constant hiring and the COVID dent is behind us.
