I've recently applied to this programme and got rejected. Not the first time I got rejected for a McK event (in fact I have never ever attended a McK event, webinar, you name it) and it started to frustrate me because I do not know why.
I would like to know if someone could give some details regarding this event or shed some advice on similar events in the future.
The way I see it, the likely reason is language, but why you ever require a language requirement for a virtual event if its a bunch of people from all over Europe (like this one which was apparently made for non business students and PhDs all over Europe) is beyond me.
Anyways, to elaborate further - I can't apply to local events because I do not speak the local language so I'm automatically disqualified, this particular time I applied for the virtual academy programme for one of the german offices even though my german level is not fluent yet so maybe that is the reason I got rejected (and to be honest I wasn't even expecting to submit an office preference for a virtual event...)
Do you think I should have applied to Nordics/London instead? anyways I'm sure my CV should be strong enough for an event....regardless of that if I can't attend events I can't network - I've already tried to do it via LinkedIn for instance for BCG/Bain and I get ignored or what happened recently my invitation request was accepted (after attending one of their events but then when I had sent a normal message for a virtual coffee again ignore mode) Don't know what to do anymore as it feels like I am just shooting bullets in the dark and thankfully a rejection from an event does not prevent me from applying but if I get rejected for events then I'll surely get rejected when I apply. Yes I don't have fancy schools on my resume but my academic records and internship are pretty good so I don't see the problem.
many thanks in advance for your kind advice.
