    Is there any consulting forums on here, or anywhere, where people can compare/ get advice on cover letters?

    There is a cover letter section on TSR, and there are professional services that will rate your cover letter for free (but will edit at a cost), and you might do well on Reddit for that too, but you should never just upload your cover letter into the public domain in a Word or PDF format for fear it could be flagged up as plagiarised or in case it gets copied.

    Great, thanks for the response. Could you send me a link to the consulting area of the CL section? I can't seem to find it

    Hi, I'm looking to apply for consulting summer internships for 2017
    Could anyone kindly shed some light on the recruiting format for boutique firms like ATK, OC&C, Roland Berger, LEK etc? (When) Have applications opened for those and are they rolling like big 4 or post-deadline like MBBs?

    Any info would be insanely appreciated

    Could you not just go onto the careers sites for these firms?

    I have and for most of them I can't see any relevant vacancies in their careers section which makes me wonder whether they haven't opened yet or if they never 'officially' opened. It's also rarely made clear whether they're rolling or not, as some firms advertise as non-rolling but do rolling.

    Any meaningful info from someone familiar with the subject would be much appreciated

    You'll be fine for now. Terms haven't even started at Oxford or Cambridge yet, and recruitment events will run through the first month or so. Bear in mind as well that your application will likely be stronger if you wait a bit (don't apply for your favorite firms first).

    Thanks for that. So would you say that they aren't rolling? I'm not Oxbridge and I am pretty confident there won't be any major CV change/event attendance on my side as I'm on a year abroad.

    I can't speak for all firms, but yes, I doubt many are rolling. Big4 might be?

    what places are open atm, I've done Deloitte and passed the tests but looking to apply elsewhere??
    Have you had a telephone interview with Deloitte? I applied for Strategy and Operations as soon as they opened, passed the tests pretty quickly but even then my "invite to first interview application on hold".

    I don't think there is one, but I've never used it. You'd do well to ask in there instead.

    Have you not heard back at all? How long's it been?

    Out of these when I last checked I could only see that Roland Berger was open, but oddly the application form was in German even when I was on the /en/ URL.

    Also, what defines boutique? These firms have thousands of employees.

    Which office did you apply to? Applications for London won't have any action on for a while until the deadline for applications passes.

    There are a fair few taking applications, but finding which ones is part of the challenge - try starting on the MCA's website. It's not too late for most places, but it'll be getting there for Big 4.

    How did you apply in July? I thought their applications opened on the 1st of September, unless you applied to Belfast? If you did I'd ring up

    I applied for the London vacancy. Basically, there was a mix up on their website, they were advertising a vacancy in London under a link for 2017 applications but it turned out to be for Autumn 2016 so when I did the tests HR contacted me saying I wasn't eligible so I had my application transferred to the Autumn 2017 scheme.

    Is PWC rolling?

    It would be odd since there are set dates for all the assessment steps?

    Well then I'd definitely give their recruitment team a buzz. Although they probably won't have started processing it until around now anyway

    Nope. They take applications until the places for one year are filled, then they open applications on the 1st of September every year

    By rolling, I mean that it doesn't matter if you apply today or in November, with regards to being successful.

    I know the rest of the big4 will be filling up asap, but not sure on pwc.
