Internship question

Anonymous A asked on Oct 13, 2019 - 4 answers

Hello,
I have a brief question. Is it possible to apply for both an internship and a direct full-time position at the same time at an MBB firm?
Thank you in advance!

A,

I would suggest you to apply for one position at a time, even if the system would allow you to apply to more than one. Go for the one where you think you have the highest chance of getting an invite for.

Best, Aws

Thank you for the reply. Could you think of a situation where one is more likely to be accepted for a full-time position rather than an internship? Would this not imply everyone should apply for an internship - it being easier to get an offer. — Anonymous A on Oct 13, 2019

Hi Anonymous,

I would recommend to consider a single option, as mentioned by Vlad after an internship application you can reapply for full time after a certain period of time.

Best,

Hi,

Not at the same time. However if you get rejected as an intern, you can apply for a full time role closer to finishing your undergrad (Ask on-campus recruiters for better timelines)

Best!

Hi,

The short answer is that it is not possible, as even if the online application system allows for this (if you create two different applications with two email addresses), your profile will be reviewed by the same people, thus application in two roles will be perceived negatively.

Best,
