I would like work as a MBB consultant with office in Germany.
Would applying for an internship first and hoping to get an offer right after help maximizing the probability getting the job?
I understand that this heavily depends on my current profile and how I would perform during the internship. I think the original question can be split into:
1) how do the requirements for an internship compare to those for a nomal
entry level position?
1.2) on interview days
2) What are the offer rates after internships? I assume it strongly depends
on office location and read it can be as low as 40% in the case of Germany.
Has somebody done an intership and can share how tough it is to get an offer this way?
A few more infos:
- I've done an internship as a consultant at a bigger consultancy before (not management consulting but daily close interaction with the client's team) and I'm confident that I will enjoy the work.
- I think I do quite well in most required categories except for convincing proof of leadership
Which way would you choose?
