    As the title says,

    When are the test centres usually taking place? How quickly after application do you get a reply/invitation? I want to go away this December, out of the country, but obviously I want a job more.

    Any ideas?

    Which company are you referring to? It depends on the company, they all have different assessment days, they usually give you a date close to the date they send the email. Replies could take from a week up to a few weeks, but some companies have a telephone interview in between the application and the assessment day, again that depends on the company. You could wait until after you return from holiday, unless the application deadline is before Christmas, then you could give it a try but if you are going on holiday, then it may pose a problem if you are invited into an assessment day. If the deadline is after Christmas, you could tell them you are going on holiday and can ask if you can postpone it, not the best practice though.

    Since this was posted in the IB&C forum, I'm assuming it's about IB&C. If so, ACs have been going on for a while now for summers and some offers have been given out. Full time recruiting is coming to a close.

    ^ there are quite a few firms that have only just given out invites to interviews for consulting. Bigger firms will tend to have dates on their websites, or you can find rough dates online. For those who have already given out or are still waiting to give out interview invites, I would estimate that ACs/final interviews are around late november - early december. If I was you I'd contact the firms you're most keen on to clarify if you can't find anything online.

    Same question here. Do firms hold interviews or ACs during the Christmas break (mid-Dec to early Jan)? Will be away for break and not sure if that would be a problem
