McKinsey Dubai: interview tips?Anyone have any experience with interviewing here (post-MBA most relevant, but something is better than nothing)? Any and all details appreciated: - # of rounds - types of questions - differences between interviews/offers here and in US offices - format (fly in for final or video conference... 2 months 2 weeks
FT Ding to Intern?I am a 2nd year MBA student and was dinged in recruiting at final rounds for a full-time position at my top choice firm, but believe I left good impressions over all (interviewers responded to my thank you emails, connected with a few on Linked in after, etc.).

With that said, I have also seen people come in with MS, PhD, etc. If you are in a program that is outside of normal MBA hire process, either crash the MBA recruiting... 2 years 8 months

Intern is actually higher risk for the firms, because they are wasting money on you to train you, and then have no guaranty you'll come back and sign on.[/quote] Exactly.

Is it worth either reapplying off cycle, next recruiting cycle, or even for a summer '13 internship (even if I am graduating in May)? I think the... 2 years 8 months
