I am currently working at a Tier-2 consulting company. I already have an MBA. Tried to get to MBB but wasn't successful passing the screening (mainly because I applied off-cycle and without any referral whatsoever).
My question is, how much time should I wait to reapply to MBB coming from a tier 2?
Note that I applied to MBB more than a year ago so the freezing period is not a factor in this situation. It is more of when is a good time to make the switch from a tier 2 to MBB and what is the best strategy to do so? (networking, after promotion, practice growth, …)
NB: I'm based in the Middle East and these are the MBB offices I am targeting.
