Hi all,

anyone willing to provide an update on the recruitment situation for graduates in the ME? Specially tier 1 and tier 2 (OW, Strategy&, Mckinsey, Bain). Is recruitment likely to restart September/October ?

As I just saw a post regarding MBA recruitment but unsure if it also applies for graduate hire.

Thank you

Hi,

Graduate hires typically compete with MBA hires for the same roles. But to be safe, you should check the company website and/or reach out to HR to understand the latest.

Best,

Hi there,

Yes the MBA post does apply to other graduates as well!

I also highly recommend to reach out to HR to get more insight into any specific office/company you're targeting
