I just graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering in North America. Last October, I received an offer, which I signed, from Kearney for a Business Analyst position in Dubai with my starting date in September 2020.
Today, I received a call from HR explaining they were pushing my strating date to January 2021. A decision that I fully understand given the current Covid context and the shrunk pipeline of projects.
1) Does anyone know what's happening in the other Top tier firms in the Middle East region? For exemple, I heard Oliver Wyman did the same thing as Kearney.
2) What to do during the 4 month of September to December? Try to grab a nice internship in a domain I wanna explore to fill the gap on my Resume? Focus on my GMAT/GRE test and ace it for potential MBA? Or/and get a online certifcate in a domain I like and in which I could deepen my skills, like Data science. (ex. MITx MicroMasters, HBS Online... worth it though?)
