Dear Ahmed,

At the moment the 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.

In order to give you mre insight from the market, reach out to me.

Best,

André

Hi Ahmed,

This is good practice for your casing.

You need to be structured in your thinking, be objective/hypothesis-driven, and be clear in your communication.

We have no idea what you mean by your question...it is too broad, not structured, and it's not clear what you want/need!
