Bain & Company Events

When leaders of the world's largest, fastest-growing companies look for help with their most complex challenges, they call Bain & Company. Today, we are at the top of our field, helping organizations—many of which are brands you're familiar with—create change. We’ve worked with majority of the Global 500, thousands of major regional and local organizations, hundreds of nonprofits, and private equity funds representing 75% of global equity capital.


In order to continue creating change and driving impact for our clients, we must continue to grow our team of exceptional colleagues. We look for intelligent, well-rounded individuals who possess a passion for continued learning, a history of leadership and teaming, a track record of success, and above all, the commitment to achieving the very best in everything they do and making an impact. At Bain, your potential to have an impact is endless and starts on day one of the job. By teaming with executives at leading global businesses, you’ll be influencing the landscape of not just one company, but an entire industry.


If you are a PhD, JD, or MD student or recent graduate or if you are currently working in a Postdoc program or as a medical resident/fellow/intern and you are considering a career in consulting, we invite you to get involved during our upcoming 2018 Advanced Degree recruitment cycle and learn why we are consistently recognized around the globe as the #1 best place to work.
