Do you know whether it is possible to apply for a full-time consultany role (at MBB and Tier2) shortly (<12months) after a rejection of an internship application? Assume situation for Germany.
I am considering applying for an internship at MBB now (internship in fall/winter) even though my main goal is to apply for full-time positions by end of year. I do not want to risk being rejected when applying for full-time due to a lack of work experience - but on the other hand I do not want to risk being banned from applying for full-time positions by end of 2019 if my internship application was unsuccessful.
My Situation: I will graduate (PhD) by end of year and would like to apply for full time positions then. I am unsure if I might need to do another internship before as I firstly do not have much work experience in absolute terms (only 1 internship in DAX30 strategy, 1 internship in unknown startup, 1 working student position at DAX30 M&A project, student consulting club projects) and secondly have an ample academic background (several BSc+MSc degrees) making my work experience appear even less. When speaking with recruiters of consulting firms I was told I needed to do at least one more internship at DAX30 strategy or just that I was lacking work experience (both this feedback was before the DAX30 strategy internship). I do not want to do another DAX30 strategy internship, only a consulting internship, if additional internship is needed.
Your advice on this subject will be highly appreciated :)
