My start date is in less than two weeks but my international criminality check is still pending (4 weeks and counting). Will they let me join the firm while the security company runs this in the background? I have proof of no criminal record for 3 out of 4 countries where I worked and lived in. The 4th country is Hong Kong and request of no criminal conviction can only be made when applying for a work visa there.

Are you a criminal in the 4th?

No. It is just Hong Kong and it will take time for them to send any data back to the screening company.

Probably something to ask the company hiring you

Well if you’re in HK just remember while it feels like you’re committing the crime, the fault lies with the chefs in other countries making terrible inedible hagau

Pretty sure I got a Hong Kong report without applying for a work permit there.

Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews.

I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.
