Bain & Company: Recruiting as a Diversity Candidate

Please join our panel of Amherst alumni to learn more about how they navigated the recruiting process as a diverse candidate. This session is open to students of all tenure.

Diversity is key to Bain & Company's mission of building extraordinary teams that deliver unparalleled results for the firm and its clients. Their teams have found that the best solution to a complex problem often comes from a different perspective or a fresh point of view. For that reason, Bain strives to recruit people with exceptional talent and ability—and to celebrate their differences, develop and train them, and then give them the opportunity to be the best they can be.

NOTE TO STUDENTS: Be sure to register on Handshake AND via Bain's Fall link to ensure your participation is captured by recruiters for follow up!
