Also was in a similar situation to you last March, I was referred last year, recruiter reached out and sent me an application link which was rejected soon after. But I reapplied a few months later in June later through the online portal without an referral and was invited to the next stage (testing, then round 1). I held off my round 2 because of personal reasons but I am still in the pipeline.

Have you talked to any other lateral hires into BCG? Would HIGHLY recommend that you do, so you come in with eyes wide open. The experience of lateral hires at BCG is markedly different than that of campus hires, and for most laterals it is very negative and disappointing, and they end up leaving (voluntarily and involuntarily) very quickly.

Odd they did that. Mine just told me to hold off because of the freeze and things or back quicker than their hold time

It was pretty odd. The person who referred checked with recruiter and they said they had resumed recruiting. Even got an unique link to apply, but I think there was changes to headcount at the office that I applied to. I was rejected pretty soon following my application.

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?
