Just got dinged from McK & BCG US, but received offers to interview with their offices in my home country. (EU) Is it worth doing this and try to transfer to the states at some point or should I reject outright? (Have a T2 return offer and a Bain interview for the US)

I mean, you decide if it's worthy or not, we really don't have the information to decide if it is or not. But it has been done before (one of my closest friends did this from England/US) at McKinsey, and I think BCG would be the same as well. If you're a top performer they will make it happen. I'd still take Bain interview and see what happens

Depends on personal circumstances, but transferring from EU to US is what I did, and US is a million times better for white collar careers. How much do you value a T1 name vs T2 salary from the start? Salary in EU is terrible.

Depends how adamant you are about staying in the States. You won’t be able to transfer immediately unless you have a pressing reason, so it would likely be a couple of years, and transfers aren’t always guaranteed. That said, if the timeline works, it doesn’t hurt to interview

And I will be able to stay more of a generalist, doing more senior work. I have a Deloitte interview tomorrow for a SC position. Continued

I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
