Should I really Wait 12 months after rejection based on application (No interview)

Hello -

Does it hurt to not wait 18-24 months as they recommend in the rejection email? I managed to get referred by an MBB manager/project leader this time, Can I re-apply within 3-6 months?

Hi Kay,

we don't know why you were rejected, which makes an assessment very difficult.

Nevertheless, why not just try again with the referal? You still have the documents, so that the application is little additional effort.

Hi Kay,

francly speaking, I doubt that it will work out this time (especially given the short notice since the last rejection).

Bear in mind that most recruiters put your profile in the data base and store your data, so they can track it for years in the past. If you've got rejected once, your profile will be frozen in the system for at least 12-18 months.

The idea behind it is that you could enrich you profile in the meantime through additional qualification (i.e. a new degree or practical experience).

My advice would be to gather some more experience, i.e. apply with another firm.

Good luck,

André

Indeed, it did not work. Maybe it is best to wait 12 months and apply next year. I am an advanced degree (PhD) with 5 years of experience from a fortune 500 global company. Not sure what I else I am supposed to add ! GPA 3.9 ! I — Kay on Sep 23, 2019

Hi,

If your resume was rejected, I doubt that the Manager's recommendation will help you. I recommend you ask the manager to talk to the recruiter and check the situation. Depending on the situation he might be able to persuade her.

Best!
