Hi, I would like to hear some advice on office location choice & application strategy. (Selecting the office in my country vs. selecting other offices where I want to go)
I am considering applying to MBB's "Greater China Offices" - Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei. I am strugglying to make the decision of choosing my home office. As I am currently based in Taipei, I think I would have a higher chance to get an offer if I apply to the Taipei office (given my cultural understanding and professional experience). However, due to family reason and sector choice, I am more pressured/interested to apply to Hong Kong or Shanghai office. Would it be possible if I apply to one of these two offices, but still have the interviews in Taipei? Currently it is not possbile to attend interviews overseas.
Also, is the recruitment on a regional basis (if recieved an offer, candidate can pick a preferred office location), or it is more office-specific? I've heard that for McKinsey, all the recruitments in Greater China region is handled by the regional office.
Thanks a lot for the advice!
