Hey all, looking for some advice. I tried for MBB during MBA and I wasn’t able to progress beyond the first round. I ended up at Deloitte and currently have 1 yr of work experience. My performance feedback was very good for this year. Do you think I can try again for MBB now as an experienced hire with 1yr of work experience or is it too soon? I’m interested in east coast North American offices. Any help/feedback would be super appreciated!

OP, it’s definitely doable - speaking from personal experience. B1 is right though, timing is tricky given the current scenario. Especially with joining dates being pushed out, etc.

Probably too soon and inopportune timing due to Covid, especially if you didn’t make it past first round and aren’t necessarily more attractive than a new hire. No harm in applying but not sure what your chances are, realistically - so would advise crushing it in your current role and see how things look next year!

Probably best to wait, get promoted and then try again when we’re back to normal roaring growth which hopefully is next year (but who knows this is a pretty crazy time)
