I just got rejected by BCG, did not go through CV round. However, I managed to arrange a call with a BCG principal next week. In our first email exchange, I told him I was applying and asked for his advice.
The expected outcome is an opportunity for a referral (It is too late to overturn the situation now). I have some questions here:
1. How can I put it nicely about the fact that I got rejected?
2. How should I mention to ask for his help, maybe one year later (given I will work full time in a Big 4’s Strategy practice)?
3. Should I just ask for general advice how to have a good start in my future job?
Thank you for time.
