So I never thought Roland Berger will contact me for an interview. The personality interview went well but the specific questions (including Case-study) went bad because I did have difficulties to understand the meaning of the words. Can I still re-apply in a few months? (And I will work on my German)

Hi,

I agree with Vlad here. You would require time to reapply (~12 months) and it is not always straightforward to improve the language capabilities in a short time frame (even within ~12 months).

If language is the main issue, then you may want to consider applying to companies outside Germany/Austria.

Regards,

Deniz

Hi,

First of all - you can't reapply earlier than in 1 year.

Secondly - I doubt that you can improve your German in a couple of months

I would take the time, work somewhere else and reapply later.

Best!
