Experienced professionals

We recruit experienced professionals year-round, but focus our efforts from February through April. Your educational background and years of relevant experience will help determine which role you should apply for at Bain:

  • Candidates without an MBA, JD or PhD should apply for the Associate consultant position
  • Candidates with an MBA, JD or PhD should apply for the Consultant position
  • Candidates with an MBA, JD or PhD, who also have more than six years of consulting experience should also apply for the Consultant position

Your position level will be assessed and adjusted, if needed, during the interview process.

Those interested in non-consultant positions, should visit our consulting support services page.

Please contact us if you have questions regarding the experienced professional recruiting process.

We hope you will consider joining our Dallas team. Please submit your online application. Fluency in English is required.


The interview process for experienced professionals will include a combination of experience interviews, written case interviews, presentation interviews and a written test. The interview process will be tailored to your experience and the position you are seeking.

Your interview may begin with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals. Many of your interviews will also include discussions of actual Bain cases, in which your interviewer will present a short business problem and then ask you to structure the problem and recommend a practical solution. You will also have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.
