Would appreciate any information on whether firms like MBB have an official recruiting timeline/timeframe for hiring experienced professionals? If anyone has context on US-based recruiting, that would be much appreciated!

From my own personal experience, there is none.

That being said, since there is a timeline for other aspects of a recruiter's job, they may be occupied for periods here and there. Also, if you have a level of experience that actually puts you pretty close to one of the undergraduate / graduate classes, you could be asked to adhere to that timeline (recruiting in early fall, start dates in summer or early fall).

Hope this helps,

@Allen, thank you for you helpful response! Would there be a formal process for those with 1 year of experience in the consulting industry?

Hi there,

The US is currently booming - if I were you I would look to start networking + applying immediatedly.

That said, in general, experienced hiring, while commencing across cohorts, is generally done on a rolling basis.

The best way to get insight into specific offices/companies is to network with people who work there (incl HR).

Good luck, and don't forget to start your case prepare while you also network + apply!
