So I was refrerred by a consultant in BCG who i practiced a few cases with to the Dubai office , my case performance was "very good" and that's how they agreed to refer me. Unfortunately the recruitment specialist came back a with a nicely worded apology of how my resume is strong but that my qualifications "do not match their current needs". Prior to applying, I had passed my resume/ cover letter by a couple of recruiters in other offices as well as a CV coach just to make sure i had the right story.
Moving forwards, I would appreciate an expert's opinion on two things: 1) how soon could i reapply? 2) Could a referral by a principal/ partner help?
Hello Deniz, Thanks for your answer!
I was told that the reason for rejection is that i have an Executive MBA and that doesn't count as a masters degree in the BCG middle east office (a unique rule to them apparently), have you heard of this rule before?
I'm a little shocked that BCG would discount a candidate for having an executive MBA!
