Undergraduate or master's degree

Who should apply to be an AC?

We encourage undergraduate and master's students who are pursuing the final year of their degree to apply for an AC or ACI position. Master's candidates with up to three years of relevant professional experience should also apply for the AC role. Your position level will be assessed and adjusted, if needed, during the interviews. Learn more about becoming an AC.

We look for AC candidates with strong analytic abilities and outstanding academic records. However, simply being eager, driven, and smart will not earn you a spot on our team. Our team is made up of passionate people, who are uncomfortable with the status quo, who are supportive of one another, and who like to have a little fun while solving real-world problems.

Bain DC recruits for full-time positions in the fall. Applications are accepted in September and October. Please check with your university's career services office for your application deadline or visit your university's page.

Apply now

All applicants must submit an online application, indicating the position of interest in geographic preferences. Undergraduate candidates may be required to submit an application through their career services office as well. Please check your university's page for specific information.

When applying online, you will be asked to include your resume, cover letter and geographical preference(s). You do not need to send in a hard copy of your materials if you are applying online.

Fluency in English is required.

Once an applicant applies using the online application, they will receive an email confirming your application, which is routed to the appropriate office for review by the local recruiting team. That team will evaluate your application and may contact you to schedule an interview. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we do not respond to candidates who are not selected for interviews.

Please contact us if you have questions regarding AC recruiting.
