Hey BCG 🐠, undergrad here. Would anyone be willing to provide a referral for Associate Consultant Intern position?

I’d talk to your schools alumni leads, or consultants coming to your recruiting events. Those people have leverage in deciding interviews. If BCG isn’t coming to your campus, chances in landing interview are rare for intern, unless from a senior leader (ex: Partner)

Don't get paid above market rate and work only 40 hours a week and not 40 hours on initiatives alone. Okay sure 🤷‍♂️

Hello baby fishy :) FYI entry level role @ BCG is associate. Associate consultant is the role at Bain - watch out, mixing it up might annoy someone!!!

Oh crap. That’s definitely my fault. Thank you for pointing it out. I will be sure to keep that in mind next time! 🙏🏻

I disagree on the if BCG isn’t coming to your campus statement - if BCG is not on campus you need to find someone in the office you are interested in to refer you (and need to build some kind of personal connection - so that they advocate for you to be interviewed)

Entering the last round for a strategy role at a small healthcare company, pay would be $90k base from discussions with the recruiter. Just got bumped to $69k (LCOL City) as of today in my current role in Tech but passed over for promo (Analyst with 2 YOE: 1 Banking, 1 consulting, both tech). I’m a non-technical person looking to get an MBA within the next 3 years and want to be in strategy focused positions. Would this hurt MBA apps and would it be a good jump to make?

In-House legal/talent recruiters completely ghosting during the interview process-- What gives? It's happened a disturbing number of times during my job hunt. They ghost after requesting an initial interview. They canceled an interview 10 minutes beforehand and then ghosted. They ghosted after saying I'd interview with the hiring manager. I get that the position was either filled or there were changed circumstances, but maybe some courtesy/professionalism toward the applicants? Be better.
