How To Apply

BCG Switzerland’s continued growth demands that we attract exceptional people. Applicants from different backgrounds are welcome throughout the year. Ideally, you should submit your online application five to six months before your desired start date.

Your application should contain the following:

  • A cover letter that describes why you want to work at BCG

  • A curriculum vitae in table format

  • Copies of your grade transcripts (Matura, Bachelor, Master, PhD)

  • Work references and references from past internships

Once we have received your application with all required documents, we will provide feedback within 14 days.

Tips for applying

  Some tips that might be helpful for your application:

  • Your cover letter should tell us what you are looking for and what you are able to offer BCG. Why do you want to work for BCG? Writing a good cover letter requires reflection about your desired career path.

  • When we evaluate your application we want to learn more about you, not just the hard facts about your educational and professional background. Give us an impression of who you are as a person.

  • Break your curriculum vitae into blocks of information (education, work experience, extra-curricular activities). Do not simply list the information in chronological order, but try to bring across who you are.

Once ready, visit our Web site to submit your application online.
