Any tips on networking into BCG? Tried LinkedIn cold messaging, emailing from my grad school’s alumni database and had no luck. I don’t want to apply without a referral. Thanks!

Hello! BCGer here. To be honest I wouldn’t refer you if I didn’t truly know you and your capabilities (risk on my judgement). That said, happy to answer any questions you have.

A cold application, if strong, will definitely be effective. Sometimes a referral helps if your story is strong but your application is weak. I say that’s only the case if you really know someone. You couldn’t convince me of your story over the phone

Agree with P1, BCG1.

I did off-cycle recruiting and was referred. Cold calling is definitely doable but you have to be careful about it. That said, I won’t accept every cold email (I get about 10 a week), but I will help someone I like and feel might be a fit.

Do you want me to send some your way? I am very very happy to do so. I am also sure candidates will appreciate a lot more given you are senior than I am.

Agre with P1, lots of people reach out to me on LinkedIn, sometimes I take some calls but I don’t refer anyone I don’t know or if I haven’t worked with them in the past. I wouldn’t even refer a friend if I believe they’re not a strong match, why would I refer someone I don’t know?

What’s your current company, level, and schooling? From that we can be honest with a guesstimate of how likely you are to get an interview

Hackett Group. Entry level consultant. 1 year of finance experience before my MS in data science from a top 10.

FWIW I applied without a referral, so it’s not absolutely necessary. It definitely helps though
