Will Bridgespan be recruiting in fall 2020?

We have made the decision to postpone our 2020 fall recruiting cycle for the US offices to early 2021. At that time we expect to have a clearer picture of our hiring needs for the 2021 class, as well as a better forecast of the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Why is Bridgespan postponing their recruiting cycle?

Our hope is to have a clearer picture of our hiring needs for the US offices for 2021 by pushing out recruiting closer to the traditional August start date.

It is possible to still interview in the fall? What if I have a competing deadline at another organization?

We are unable to accommodate early interviewing.

When will recruiting begin in 2021?

We anticipate the application for the US offices will open in February.

Will every US office have positions available in 2021?

We are still working on the budgeting process for 2021, unfortunately, it's too early to determine whether each office will be hiring.

Will early 2021 interviews be for a fall 2021 start date?

Yes, we anticipate that our 2021 consulting class will start in fall 2021.
