Hi, I am Molham, an Associate consultant in Dubai.

I joined Bain to help local and global organizations advance the region's growth and transformation. There is no better place than Bain to gain exposure to the workings of the world's top organizations and learn different modes of thinking through challenges, all the while being surrounded by individuals who sincerely care about your personal and professional development.

We work with clients all over the region - during my time at Bain, I have had the opportunity to travel and work in three different cities and in two different countries. As a part of our culture, we also take the time to help to push our communities forward; through Bain Cares – Bain's social impact arm – I have had the privilege of launching a collaborative program with a local incubator to help student startups develop sales, product, and growth strategies.

At Bain, I learned that the true essence of business – regardless of how complicated people make it seem – fundamentally comes down to human connection. I have been involved in a variety of sectors, serving on the finance, Telecommunications, and retail practices. Most recently, alongside an incredible team, I introduced an agile process transformation at a leading GCC luxury fashion retailer. Through market analysis, a host of interviews and surveys, and internal organizational analysis, we developed a firm-wide model for responding to customer feedback that fits our client's unique organizational structure and needs.

In proper consulting fashion, there are three key capabilities you need to thrive during the Bain recruiting process, and ultimately at Bain. Firstly, understand how to share your story. When you interact with a Bain consultant or recruiter for the first time, they often do not know anything about you – tell your story in an inspiring way. Secondly, practice the hard skills and prepare for the interview – mental math, qualitative reasoning, etc. Thirdly, be proactive. Regardless of what, why, or where you intend to reach, the trait of proactiveness yields the greatest return in pushing you towards your trajectory.
