    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.
    Thanks for your contribution. In the context of the question, I was simply referring to anything that's not Big 4 or MBB. Any idea about their recruiting style (rolling/non-rolling)? Trying to get a grasp of the timeline

    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.
    Am I right to believe you're referring to Grad jobs when mentioning that it's late for Big 4, or does that also include Summer? Sorry, trying to get a grasp of the timeline again

    Thanks

    I can't really say much on recruiting style, they're all different. I know Parthenon-EY don't even look at applications until after the deadline, whereas others say they consider applications as they come in. Best to check individual websites.

    I'm looking for grad jobs, so yes. I spoke to EY the other day and they're saying they're likely to be filling in soon, and KPMG are already running out of spaces on launch pad days (at least outside of london). I don't know about Deloitte and PwC.

    This may seem like a random question but how hard is it to get into consulting?
    I am graduating in 2017 with a predicted First in economics from a middle of the road uni (non-target but not a polytechnic).
    I have spent a year in industry at a bulge bracket investment bank and also have 3 months experience abroad volunteering.
    I'm not really sure what my chances are.

    Oh I see I've applied for a graduate role!

    I haven't started researching anything yet about the assessment centre but I've had an internship this summer with the government and we did a practice assessment centre there where we practiced a group exercise so if it's anything like the one we did there you'll be given some literature to read on a topic so I was the environmental committee and another was commercial committee another was the community committee etc and you all have different
    Objectives so you need
    To show you can communicate well to communicate your personal objective but also meet a consensus showing team work so I imagine it'll be along the same lines where we'll each have a different project we have to brief about and we need to decide the best one as a group

    It was via government social research scheme they open applications in January I think for penultimate year students and you rank your preferred governmental department that you would want to work in

    Hi!

    I applied for the Deloitte summer internship as a consultant. I did this over a week ago and since then received an email asking about why i had a gap year, was then told my application would be processed shortly but then heard nothing back and it's been 5 days since then. I'm worried as people are saying it takes 3 days that perhaps there is something wrong? Should I email the same person asking when I should hear back by as I haven't even got to the test stage yet it still says "under consideration" :/

    Does that mean we passed the pre-screening? I'm going to do the verbal tomorrow and numerical on Thursday because I'm so busy at work. I wish you all the best!

    I kinda figured if we'd actually passed the pre-screening they'd have mentioned it on the email, so I think it might be automatically sent out? But it would be really great if it means we have passed the first round! I tried doing the numerical practise one, and I just couldn't finish in time - how do you find the time constraints?

    True but one can hope haha. Well I've done a few numerical tests for other applications so I'm finding timing okay but it often depends on the test. I finished one numerical with 5 minutes to spare and with a harder one I was working right up to the last 10 seconds! Just try to remain calm, work quickly (but be thorough) and most importantly have confidence in yourself.

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if you guys know whether previous applications to a firm will harm my current chances? Basically - have just been rejected from Deloitte without even an invitation to online tests, despite a first class Oxford degree, internship at the department of business, a marketing internship, and various other involvements with university societies (and with the Oxford careers service being very complimentary of my cover letter/experience). My previous applications were tbh pretty rubbish and half-hearted - I mainly applied because I felt pressure from my university/social group, and was no where near as qualified in experience as I am now, and didn't really have the motivation that I now do so they were either rejected, or withdrawn by myself.

    I know the scheme is super competitive but I would have thought I'd at least be given the chance to take the tests - and looking at the LinkedIn of current associates, they seem similarly (or even less) qualified than myself. I've also applied to a few others last week and haven't received a response/ test invite (not sure how long it takes and whether this is a bad sign?!)

    I'm feeling really disheartened at this and worried that I won't have a chance now I've made all the applications - please advise! (and feel free to say if you think I'm over-reacting)
