SC1 is correct. White women do not usually count as affinity hires unless they’re going into really specific practices (e.g. digital).

Depends totally on what they’re applying for. Example: In HR, men are considered diversity candidates.

I’m American but ethnically an Indian female. Lol fingers crossed that this is a winning combo?

I would caveat that being an affinity recruit (does not specifically include Indian colleagues, but can include women) does *not* mean that you won’t be held to the same standard as everyone else who is hired. It just means you might be connected to additional resources (e.g. casing workshop, mentor who can practice case with you, panels of other people from your affinity group) to help you learn about the firm and prepare. Typically women who come in through established affinity pipelines (e.g. Forte) are going to have more exposure to those resources because that’s the most efficient way for the firm to target those groups (vs. one-off applicants).

All- I have some friends who work at Bain and the more I hear about the place, the more I want to eventually work there. The issue is that my credentials aren’t the best. I will have an MBA from a T15 college in about 2 years time, I have 6 years of experience in analytics consulting, mostly at small firms and startups. I guess I wanted to ask the golden question, do I really have a chance at getting into Bain? If so, how should I plan this out?
