71 <div class="entry-content"><p>Today, I attended a &#8216;Recruitment Talk&#8217; by one of the Big Four ( after Andersen&#8217;s shameful fall) of the Consulting Industry, <a href="http://www.bcg.com">Boston Consuting Group</a>. Boy, all the castles I had dreamed of buying went away in a &#8216;pff&#8217;.</p>
72
73 <p>Okay, this is what that happened. This company wants its people to play hard and work hard. That&#8217;s fine by me. It loves to have people who are addicted to challenges. That&#8217;s not fine by me, but given the amount of money they pay, it&#8217;s probably worth being a slave. It wants people with First Class Honours. Now, that&#8217;s definitely NOT fine by me. I can&#8217;t even dream of getting anywhere near First Class ( unless I score distinctions in every subject from now on).</p>
74
75 <p>To top it all, they have atleast 6 to 7 gruelling rounds of interview and select just ONE person out of some thousand candidates to join their branch in Singapore. And what&#8217;s more, their company has just 37 people working in Singapore! And just 2,600 people worldwide! (even Enron had more employees on this planet than BCG!)</p>
76
77 <p>Well, the point is, they give no room for error. So, if you were on a binge the night before an exam, bad luck, you will never get to work at BCG ( unless you make up for that with some distinctions in your kitty). Oh well, I guess that&#8217;s why they are still one of the Big Four!</p>
