I’m preparing the cover letters for MBB. I did connect with current employees at each firm, and for each firm had connections with different offices.
I have clear in mind my preferred location, however I’m not sure if I should already state that I want to go to a specific office in the cover letter. Let’s say I prefer office X and shape the cover letter on the specificities of that office (project pipeline, working environment, growth opportunities, etc.). In the case I won’t get an offer from office X but I still do good across the recruitment, having such a specific cover letter will prevent me to be redirected to my other office preferences? If yes, should I mention then also “why office Y” (the 2nd option) or instead stay at a more general level?
