I'm in a conflicting position with a banking offer I have currently and the BCG Associate interview process. I am excited to have recieved the BCG interview and intend on going through with the process regardless of what happens. However, my first round with BCG is not for another couple of weeks. I attempted to extend the decision deadline for my banking role, and they agreed but it is still not enough time.
I don't want to decline the banking offer, since BCG's interviews are obviously difficult and I am not guaranteed an offer there. The banking gig is great and would add a lot of skills and value to my career. My question then is, IF given an offer- would I be able to defer the offer for a year or more? I would not feel comfortable reneging on my current offer so I would rather defer and commit to starting at a later date. Is this something BCG would do? Perhaps adding a years' worth of banking experience under my belt would help my case as well.
