Applied 3 mos ago to Bain and 2 mos ago to BCG, both with referral.

No interview invite or rejection, what gives?

If NA, we would’ve wrapped up FT hiring in November and then are busy with SA hiring. In all likelihood, recruiting may not have even looked at your app - we usually reassess capacity needs around March/April. Also, it depends on how strong your referral is and your referrer’s connection with recruiting - i.e., whether they’d push recruiting to look and make a decision.

Anyone know if it’s worth making the change?
